Panning Laws and Theory
Virtual Studio Technology Plug-ins are add-on tools,effects and synths that can be 'bolted' onto an existing audio host program. Audiomulch accepts VST plug-ins and this is how the Ambisonic encoding and decoding has been implemented. The VST standard was designed and is maintained by Steinberg.
VST plug-ins without a graphical user interface can be easily compiled for both Mac and Windows, allowing cross-platform operation. Also, the VST standard is so simple and the
software development kit
so easy to get off
, that there are many good, free, plug-ins available.
