Getting started with Ircam`s panoramix workstation for mixing and post-production of 3D audio

This workshop introduces panoramix, a versatile workstation for the diffusion, mixing, and post-production of spatial audio (http://forumnet.ircam.fr/product/panoramix-en/).Panoramix is a standalone application (macOS, Windows, Linux) designed as a virtual console; it offers a comprehensive environment for combining channel–, scene–, and object–based paradigms. The incoming streams are mixed in a flexible bus architecture, which tightly couples sound spatialization with reverberation effects. The tool supports a broad range of rendering techniques (VBAP, HOA, binaural, etc.) and it is remotely controllable via OSC. During the practical workshop, the authors will present several music excerpts produced with this tool and based on various recording and mixing strategies. Discussion about principles, methods of use, and interoperability with existing workflows will follow.
