Flux has released v3 of Ircam Tools Spat, an advanced and sophisticated tool for room acoustics simulation and localisation, managing both spatialisation (source localisation) and room acoustic simulation in a truly consistent and visually logical way.
Designed for surround and multi-channel use, Spat v3 presents the option to setup the output arrangements providing a variety of stereo and surround configurations, including subwoofer configuration. With eight input and output channels available in SPAT, configurations up to 7.1 and 8.0 are feasible.
Each of the up to eight incoming audio channels is internally mapped to a range of Virtual Sources localized in a 3D space, and connected to a room (a reverb). Up to 3 rooms in parallel are provided, presenting the option to simulate complex spaces (coupled room acoustics).
Spat v3 introduce state of the art techniques for room acoustics simulation utilizing advanced perceptive models, concealing the complexity behind the actual algorithms, allowing for intuitive and accommodating user interaction capabilities.
Spat for Windows and Mac (AU/VST/AAX) costs $1379 USD / 1029 EUR. An introductory 30% discount is available for a limited time. For all current Spat users the Spat v3 software is a free update. Ircam Spat v3 includes a licence for Ircam Verb v3 as well.
