I tryed to disable the VST Panner within an Audio Channel. But the Panner is still active! (Can`t be disabled)
Especially a problem if you running Quad or Ambisonic Bus Setup.
My Goal was to route 4 Mono Channels, recorded from a Sennheiser VR Mic, to a 1Th Order Ambisonic Group Bus.
This isnt even possible.
So I tried it over a Quadro Bus, which is possible by hard panning.
Then I used the Ambeo Plug in to Convert from Ambisonics A to B Format within this Quadro Group.
To Finaly get a Ambinonics B Channel, I routed the Output of the Quadro Group to this Ambisonis Group.
But I can see that the Output Levels of the Quadro Group is not the same as the Input of the Ambisonics Group.
Even if I hit the disable Button of the VST Panner in the Channel Strip, it stays active.
I think this is a Bug.
To Work propper with Ambisonics, my solution was as follow:
Import the 4 Mono files to dedicated 4 Mono Tracks.
Setting up an Ambisonics Outbut Bus at the Studio.
Route the Mono Tracks to the single Sub-Bus of the Ambisonics Output Bus.
Export it to a Multichannel wav.
Then Reimport it as 4 Channel 1th Order Ambisonics Track.
The not nice thing is, if you want to export the Binaural Stereo file. (HRTF processed) you have to Re-Route this from the Phones Out Back to an Input in the Hardware-Interface.
I hope that the Bug with disabling the VST Panner ist solved soon.
