Ambiophonics Processor VST:

After some weeks of fine-tuning and testing the plugin is released to the public. It features a highly customizeable crosstalk-cancellation solution based on the RACE algorythm developed by the Ambiophonic Institute.

The plugin can be used to process regular 2-channel stereo material for ambiophonic presentation. This is basically a 2-speaker setup where the speakers themselves are placed close to each other, but still, due to the crosstalk cancellation, the achieved soundstage can be (almost) up-to 180 degrees. (The website is stuffed with information on how to set-up such system, and also the plug-in has a detailed on-line help to assist any ambio-newbie :-)

The plugin can be used in any VST compatible host on the PC (it was tested with Audiomulch 2.0, Ableton Live 8 and Christian Budde's plugin analyzer, let me know if you find any incompatibilities with your host).

Compatibility with Winamp (and any other software capable of loading Winamp DSP plugins, like the great FFDshow codec), and foobar2000 is provided via wrappers:

Winamp VST Bridge
foobar2000 VST wrapper

System Requirements:
- VST 2.3 compliant host (or any of the wrappers listed above)
