This O3A panner takes a mono sound and places it in a particular direction in a 3D O3A mix.

This plugin is an extra large version of our standard panner plugin. It can be useful on high resolution screens. It also supports background images.

Background Images

Press the "Load Image" button to load an image to replace the default grid background. JPG and PNG images are supported. Because of the way the plugin works, we recommend use of dark backgrounds.

The target image size is 636x316. Other sizes are resized to fit.

The "Clear" button can be used to clear the image so the default grid background is shown again.

The plugin is available in the O3A Core plugin library.

View Support

When used with O3A View Sync from the O3A View library, this plugin can be connected to the separate View or ViewVR applications.

When this option is available, a 'View' button appears at the top right of the plugin's user interface.

Controls: Azimuth and Elevation

Azimuth and Elevation control the direction in which the input is placed in the 3D audio scene.

Azimuth is the horizontal angle, between -180 to +180 degrees, measured anticlockwise (left) from the front. Elevation is a vertical angle between -90 and +90 degrees, measured with positive upwards and 0 on the horizontal.

For instance, the direction for azimuth +90 and elevation +45 can be found by turning 90 degrees to the left and then looking up by 45 degrees.

It may help to experiment with the control surface to get used to this way of doing things.
