BiPanB2 2D Ambisonic B-format panner


BiPanB2.kr(inA, inB, azimuth, gain)


Encode a two channel signal to two dimensional ambisonic B-format.

This puts two channels at opposite poles of a 2D ambisonic field.

This is one way to map a stereo sound onto a soundfield.

It is equivalent to:


PanB2(inA, azimuth, gain) + PanB2(inB, azimuth + 1, gain)


inA - input signal A

inB - input signal B

azimuth - position around the circle from -1 to +1. 

-1 is behind, -0.5 is left, 0 is forward, +0.5 is right, +1 is behind.

gain - amplitude control
