Abstract The Institute of Electronic Music and Acoustics (IEM) has, in the course of a concert, developed several spatial reverberation effects based on Ambisonics. To this end, feedback loops with varying delays as well as a mixing/rotation matrix were implemented in a sequencer. The aim of this student project is to efficiently implement these algorithms as VST plugins so as to make them easily employable by users outside of the IEM. Furthermore, this work with its documentation should form a basis for eventual future projects and provide an introduction to VST plugin creation and the associated toolchain.
