W31 - Introducing the IEM Plug-in Suite

Daniel Rudrich, Institute of Electronic Music and Acoustics Graz - Graz, Austria

The "IEM Plug-in Suite" is a free and open-source audio plug-in suite created by staff and students at IEM. It features 3D higher-order Ambisonic plug-ins up to 7th order including encoders, decoders, surround visualizer, dynamic processors, and delay and reverb effects, which also allow to auralize directional sources. Moreover, the plug-in suite includes a tool to design Ambisonic decoders for arbitrary loudspeaker layouts employing the AllRAD and imaginary-loudspeaker downmix approach. All implementation is research-driven, and the suite is meant to continuously grow by recent developments, e.g., improvements in binaural Ambisonic rendering. The workshop presents the plug-ins and practically demonstrates the basic applications and workflow in Reaper.
