Acustica Audio has announced the release of its latest FIRE series single-knob plugin Fire The Pan, an easy-to-use panning effect.

With advances in audio, numerous tools are now available on the market that explore the concept of panning, starting with traditional 2D panning, and extending the balancing concept to spatialisation, allowing the perception of sound source positioning in the surround field to be altered to produce increasingly realistic 3D sound effects extending this paradigm to the extent of ‘3D Audio panning’ (object-based audio, and Ambisonics audio).

Fire The Pan brings together five different panning categories all-in-one, for more than 60 emulations. Let yourself be tempted by this new FIRE entry to transform the way you think about your stereo image, so that you’ll definitely want in your tool set. Well, all this and more can be found in Fire The Pan.
