Friday’s Freeware: the Haas effect in your DAW
Let’s welcome this week Apex Audio Technologies who debut in the virtual world with a free spatial effect plug-in that simulates the Haas effect.
Haa5 is a VST and AU plug-in that uses stereo delays to create a “precedence” or Haas effect, named after Helmut Haas who first described the psycho-acoustic phenomenon.
By applying a slight delay between the right and left signals, the listener perceives a right/left “movement” of the sound (or vice versa, this depends on which side the signal is heard first). Apex Audio Technologies is reproducing this effect in Haa5 so that you can control the stereo image of your tracks. The plug-in features for this task three knobs for pan, output level and precedence.
Haa5 is available for free download from www.apexaudio.org. You’ll need to register to get it, and you can donate to encourage the developer’s work if you wish.
Have a great week-end!
