Waves Audio is now shipping the Brauer Motion plugin, a spherical auto-panner developed together with Grammy-winning mix engineer Michael Brauer.
The Waves Brauer Motion plugin allows users to create a world of movement inside a mix with up-to-360-degree auto-panning. The feature works especially well on rhythmic tracks such as percussion and acoustic guitar, on swelling pads and organs, or to achieve subtle or drastic panning movement.
As the man behind top-selling albums from Coldplay, John Mayer, Dave Matthews Band, Florence and the Machine, Bob Dylan, Hall & Oates, Aretha Franklin and many more, Brauer has a deep understanding of how movement can be used to energise a mix.
The plugin comes with four different panning modes to direct the motion of the sound; four different trigger modes for a variety of on/off options; two separate panners with full control; a dynamics section; pre-delay, motion filter, and precise control over the speed, width and depth; and a master section with gain and wet/dry controls.
The Brauer Motion plugin also includes presets from top mixing engineers, including Michael Brauer, Dave Pensado, Mark Ralph, Ross Hogarth, Tom Elmhirst, Tony Maserati and Yoad Nevo.
