I’m designing some spatialisation with Spat for a performance in a venue set in the round, with the speakers in a central location and pointing outwards in a circle towards the audience. There are multiple speakers, both on the floor and hanging from a circular truss (also pointing outwards).
After reading other posts I gather that the panning algorithms are designed with a central sweet-spot in mind, with all speakers assumed to be pointing to the centre of the space. Of course, I don’t expect to guarantee any sort of accuracy when inverting this situation, but I wondered the following:
- Is it possible to give speakers a rotation/direction message to point them outwards?
- Is there a way of mocking this up using a different panning algorithm?
- Any other things that might assist in setting something like this up?
Until I get in the space I’m taking spat5.spat~'s output and downmixing to binaural using spat5.virtualspeakers~.
Thanks for any help on this,
