Boz Digital Labs has launched Panipulator 2, a free effect plugin for checking how your mixes will translate to different systems.
Even though you spent considerable time and effort getting your mix to sound amazing on your monitors, there is still one very important question: What will it sound like playing at a theme park? or at the dentists office? or on your old radio? What if they wired one of the speakers backwards?
As much as we’d like to think that everyone is listening our music in stereo, the truth is that many many people are listening in less than ideal environments. Panipulator lets you hear what your mix will sound like in those environments so you can be sure that your mixes will translate across all systems.
Panipulator 2 is available as freeware for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX).
