AMBEO Orbit
Version: 0.1.1 beta

The AMBEO Orbit is a Sennheiser’s free binaural panner plugin, designed to facilitate mixing immersive binaural content.
Pairing the Neumann KU100 – reference for binaural capture – with the newly released AMBEO Orbit plugin you gain full
flexibility and control over your binaural recording.
You can now effectively position additional mono or stereo sources into the 3D sound field, avoiding the unwanted coloration.
In fact, the patented clarity control allows you to choose how much of the binaural coloration to apply.
Additionally, the unique interface for creating binaural room reflections allows you to drastically improve spatial accuracy in comparison to a reverb plugin.

Will this do some of the positioning that SPAT does?

Some yes, SPAT has a lot more to offer but is also more expensive, this being free and all.
Have just finished a marathon of work and need some time out of the studio to gather my french fries... think I'm short of one, or so says my wife and daughter...

Anyhow.

There is a lot of these 360 freebies that lets the user place "objects" in the 360 environment.
I'm too of a rookie to give advice of which works the best.
But I do more and more 360 audio so soon...

Bearing in mind this is for binaural audio, so I suppose the uses are bit more narrow than SPAT.

I've been using the Audio Ease 360pan suite https://www.audioease.com/360/ and IRCAM SPAT, SPAT is "only" two dimensional, together with various encoders for binaural (audio ease has a great monitor tool, ircam has HEAR)
Facebook's great kit is found here --> https://facebook360.fb.com/spatial-workstation/

This Sennheiser freebee looks great and, could be a great step-in tool for those who want to tryout spatialization in the 360 domain.
Most of us, I think, don't have 7.1.4 systems and have to resort to headphones to monitor.
Audio Ease have a great little head tracker that can be used together with their software, It's scary to "move around" with that thing on :-O

Best,
Anders

Andres, thank you for this remarkable list of 360 (immersive) audio related tools! Wow.

Binaural audio, practically speaking, is where a lot of the paid work is going to come from in my estimation, at least in the near term, for immersive audio work particularly if you are doing 360 video aimed for The Facebook.
