Control Panning with The Palm of Your Hand
By connecting a mobile device and its motion sensors with any DAW, Sound Particles' patent-pending technology offers a highly efficient and intuitive way to control sounds with the palm of your hand. Every movement you can imagine is now possible, easier than ever - and just a touch away.
Revolutionize the Way You Pan Your Sounds
Panning with knobs in stereo is perfectly fine. However, when working with surround or 3D sound, even when using joysticks, it's much harder to get the results we're looking for. Space Controller is a plugin and an app, that together allow you to pan sound from stereo to any immersive format, either in a home studio or mixing stage.
Cube and Sphere Modes
If you are working with Ambisonics, VR, or other sphere-related workflows, the Sphere Mode is perfect for you. If you prefer a more traditional approach, the Cube Mode is the one you're looking for.
Space Controller allows you to control sound as a single mono source, independent channels, rotating entire soundfields, or mirror-like approaches. The plugin gives you the best accuracy and smoothness to control exactly where you want sounds to go.
It is possible to either use the same mobile device to control multiple tracks or use multiple mobile devices to control different channels. Imagine using two devices at the same time: one for the left channel and another for the right channel. The more devices, the more fun!
The Space Controller plugin and all the features it offers allow for absolute spatial freedom. So even without the mobile device and the app, it is still possible to use Space Controller as a regular 3D panner plugin.
Use Bluetooth to easily connect the mobile app to any system, with minimum effort. In the case of professional studios with computers located in different rooms, we advise using the Wi-Fi connection for seamless workflows.
Space Controller allows changing the size of sources, which will control the width of each sound. Higher sizes will make a sound reach for more speakers.
It is possible to individually hold each position-related parameters, either as coordinates in Cube mode or angles in Sphere.
Choose from four different modes - Mono, Channels, Rotation, and Symmetric - to place and move each source independently, control and rotate the entire sound field, or even use the Symmetric Mode to control the width of a 5.1 recording.
Cube vs Sphere
Space Controller offers the possibility of panning either in Cube or Sphere Mode, depending on your preferred workflow.
Space Controller enables you to choose both the input and output formats independently of each other and to mute certain input and output channels within each format.
It is possible to select between top and rear views to get consistent visual cues of where the sound is being placed.
Stereo, Multichannel and Immersive Support
From stereo to 5.1, from HOA to Binaural, from 7.1 to Dolby Atmos, Space Controller provides several output options for the panner.
