Disable ambisonic bus decoding

I’m using Panoramix to work with ambisonic, but at the moment I’m not doing any decoding in Panoramix, I’m just interested in routing the ambisonic signal outside for further processing.
I am able to do this, but is it also possible to disable decoding for an ambisonic bus in order to save CPU power? And what about disabling the reverb?
Thank you,


No, at the moment you cannot disable HOA decoding. I’ll see what I can do about that.

You can disable the associated reverb (just mute it – it will save cpu); however, be aware that the reverb is also part of the routed encoded HOA stream.


FYI : the next release will feature a “no decoding” option (in the method menu) which fully disable HOA decoding (therefore saving CPU).
