Lese has released its audio positioning effect Transfer, a spatialization plugin that is designed with ease-of-use in mind.

Taking advantage of ambisonic audio, Transfer handles the processes associated with both encoding and decoding of the sound internally, without having to mess around with a bunch of variables. Transfer keeps it dead simple; audio in, spatialized signal out.

Transfer also features two different control modes; a full spherical positioner, as well as an X/Y pad representing the left/right/front/back space around the listener.

Transfer features

  • Toggleable doppler delay and air dampening filters.
  • Binaural (HRTF) spatialization mode making use of a virtual speaker dodecahedron.
  • Stereo spatialization mode, for more basic spatial positioning.
  • Linear (constant speed) and smooth (filtered) movement modes.
  • Source spread and separation controls, allowing for a “smeared” perceptual position spread over a larger area.
  • Vectorized, resizable interface.

Priced $35 USD, Transfer is available in VST3 and AU plugin formats for Windows and Mac. A free demo version is available to download.
