Hi, I’m trying to use third-party ambisonic plugins in cubase 10, but am struggling to figure out the routing. So far:
- Created a third-order ambisonic output bus, set it as the main mix, and assigned the first two ports to outputs 1 & 2 (my monitoring headphones).
- Created a stereo audio track (with a stereo audio file), set the output to the TOA output bus, and placed the Noise Makers AmbiPan (the channel’s meter shows the correct output of 16 channels)
- Insert the Noise Makers Ambi Head on the TOA output bus. When disabled, the meter shows 16 tracks, when enabled it shows two (binaural).
So, that all seems correct, but when panning in the AmbiPan, the sound doesn’t correlate as I pan during binaural monitoring. I’ve very confused as to whether the stereo channel’s VST Multipanner is causing a problem. I can’t seem to disable it. If I bypass it, the channel suddenly outputs only mono! If, however, I disable the AmbiHead and instead use the VST Multipanner and reduce the “width” parameter to 0, then the panning sounds correct during binaural monitoring.
Is there a way to have a channel routed to an ambisonic output bus that can avoid having the sound affected by the channel’s VST multipanner?
