ToneBoosters has released TB OmniSone, a freeware panner and spatial processor in VST plugin format for Windows.
TB OmniSone is a zero-latency VST plugin to (re-)pan sound sources, even outside the loudspeaker base. It also allows for increasing the perceived ‘width’ or spatial extent, and depending on the spectral content, may allow to subtly modify the perceived height of a source. Simply position the handles to change the desired position of each input signal, and use the mouse wheel to modify the spatial width.
Please note that the results and effectiveness of TB OmniSone depend on the (spectral) properties of the audio signals, the employed loudspeaker setup, and the anthropometric properties of the listener. Best results are obtained with high-quality loudspeakers placed at +/- 30 degrees as seen from the listener position.
TB OmniSone is available for free download via ToneBoosters.

- Zero-latency processing
- Support of all sampling rates from 44.1 up to 192 kHz
