Ambisonics is a technique for the spatialization of sound sources within a spherical loudspeaker arrangement. This paper presents a suite of Ambisonics processors, compatible with most standard DAW plug-in formats on Linux, Mac OS X and Windows. Some considerations about usability did result in features of the user interface and automation possibilities, not available in other surround panning plug-ins. The encoder plug-in may be connected to a central program for visualisation and remote control purposes, displaying the current position and audio level of every single track in the DAW. To enable monitoring of Ambisonics content without an extensive loudspeaker setup, binaural decoders for headphone playback have been implemented.
