Device Overview

Name/Version: Vbap Panner 1.0.1
Author: alkman  
Description: 2D Surround panner based on Ville Pulkki's vBap(vector base amplitude panning) spatialisation algorithm. It shares many ideas with ableton's Surround Panner and E4L's Source Panner device. This one though uses much less CPU and in contrast with ambisonics allows for custom speaker arrangments.
You can use the predefined speaker arrangments or type your own coordinates in degrees(-180,180 or 0, 360) in the text editor. Supports up to 12 channels.
There is also a cheap highpass filter for simulating distance placement outside the "sonic sphere" (0 value == filter off).

---General cleaning up of the patch
