Device Overview

Name/Version: Panarchy lite - Define your own pan laws 1.2
Author: Crampe  
Description: Panarchy is a panning device designed to help you achieve realistic stereo spatialisation. It also has a great realtime Doppler mode.
It is highly inspired by the excellent Goodheartz Panpot. You can achieve exactly the same results, and even go further with Panarchy... and did I already said it has a doppler too?

While traditional mixers only rely on level differences to move a sound to the sides, Panarchy tries to mimic what’s happening in the real world where level differences are just a tiny part of the phenomenon.

Panarchy has four panning types that you can mix together to create stunning stereo imaging that translates both to stereo monitors and headphones:

- DELAY : A sound doesn’t reach both ears at the exact same time, so very small delay times are used to move the source around the stereo field. You also have control over the delay time with the « x-lay » fader.

- SPECTRAL : when a sound is placed to your right, your head acts like a filter before the sound arrives to your left ear. So the spectral module introduces timbral differences to mimic that. You can exaggerate this by using the « x-tral » fader.

- PHASE: this one is really special. It’s based on phase shifting and you won’t find this in many devices. It’s weird and great. Yeah, I love it!

- LEVEL : you know this one, it’s like your traditional mixer/DAW pan pot. When you move a sound to the left, its level is reduced on the right side. The level module does just that, but it uses a custom pan law.

I'm particularly proud of this device, and I'm sure you'll love it, really. It's great for music, post production, sound design (heyhey sweet doppler!), or simply for the immense pleasure listening to terrific stereo worlds. Stereo rocks, yeah dudes

Oh, and the Push implementation is spot on!

Panarchy - define your own pan laws!!

Panarchy lite version limitations:
- no Level engine
- only Mono input
- no sides input Flip Phase
- fixed Delay time
- fixed Spectral character
- limited magic Phase engine range
- fixed Doppler min&max distance
But what's left is already awesome, believe me ;-)

Live 9 minimum (should work on L8 too, but I haven't tried)
Max 7 minimum

Looks interesting. Would love to see a video demo!

Hey Broah.
I'm thinking about making some kind of a short teaser, but not sure I'll have time to make a deeper video demo. The wild amount of spatialisation you can get out of this shit is pretty impressive, and I'm not sure yet if I could manage to make a short enough (i.e not boring) video that can be representative of its capabilities.

That's partly why I've decided to patch a free lite version, which hopefully gives a good idea of what the full version can do.
