h1. VBAP - Vector Base Amplitude Panning

h1. Summary

* Description: VBAP is an efficient extension of stereophonic amplitude panning techniques, applied to multi-loudspeaker setups. In a horizontal plane around the listener, a virtual sound source at a certain position is created by applying the tangent panning law between the closest pair of loudspeaker. This principle was also extended to project sound sources onto a three dimensional sphere and assumes that the listener is located in the center of the equidistant speaker setup.
