Ircam Spat v3 - The complete Room Acoustics Simulation and Localisation Solution
[ AU 32 & 64 bit | VST 32 & 64 bit | AAX Native 32 & 64 bit* ]

 

With more than a decade of research performed by the Acoustic and Cognitive Spaces Team at Ircam, being at the forefront of scientific and technological innovations, Spat v3 is the most advanced and sophisticated tool for room acoustics simulation and localisation ever designed, managing both spatialisation (source localisation) and room acoustic simulation in a truly consistent and visually logical way.

 

Designed for surround and multi-channel use, Spat v3 presents the option to setup the output arrangements providing a variety of stereo and surround configurations, including subwoofer configuration. With eight input and output channels available in SPAT, configurations up to 7.1 and 8.0 are feasible.

 

Each of the up to eight incoming audio channels is internally mapped to a range of Virtual Sources localized in a 3D space, and connected to a room (a reverb). Up to 3 rooms in parallel are provided, presenting the option to simulate complex spaces (coupled room acoustics).

 

Spat v3 introduce state of the art techniques for room acoustics simulation utilizing advanced perceptive models, concealing the complexity behind the actual algorithms, allowing for intuitive and accommodating user interaction capabilities.

 

The Ircam Spat v3 includes a licence for Ircam Verb v3 as well.

 

 

*Ircam Spat v3 AAX Native supports 32 bit in Pro Tools 10.3.5 and 64 bit in Pro Tools 11.

Signal Processing Features

  • Input/Output gain controls for adjusting the levels before and after processing.

 

 

Preset and Parameter Handling

 

Preset/Parameter slots

To enhance the workflow the two Preset/Parameter slots, A and B, can be loaded with two full set of parameters at the same time. Apart from saving each preset, a "Global Preset" containing both the A and B settings, and the position of the "Morphing Slider", can be saved.

 

Parameter Morphing Slider with Automation

The Morphing Slider provides morphing between the parameter settings of slot A/B allowing for really creative and useful real-time tweaking. Enabling the Automation control button exposes the Morphing Slider to the host automation.
