The Ambisonic Toolkit
Tools for soundfield-kernel composition
The Ambisonic Toolkit (ATK) brings together a number of classic and novel tools for the artist working with Ambisonic surround sound. The toolset is intended to be both ergonomic and comprehensive, framed so that the user is enabled to ‘think Ambisonic’.
The Ambisonic Toolkit addresses the holistic problem of creatively controlling a complete soundfield, facilitating spatial composition beyond simple placement of sounds in a sound-scene. The artist is empowered to address the impression and imaging of a soundfield – taking advantage of the native soundfield-kernel paradigm the Ambisonic technique presents.
