I'll try out. there are at least 6 sources to spatialize, which means 6x 
enconding+decoding plugins adding to the patch. I'm assuming these 
aren't the heaviest processing, but there are already up to 1000 
tabplay~ playing sometimes.

you're right, a spacialization will be added.

ah, now I found out that the values are scaled between 0 and 1. This 
makes sense now.

Since I have you here (without abusing), do you know the most adequate 
formula to convert a xy or xyz (cartesian??) coordinate system to the 
stereoencoder coordinates (which I assume are polar?)?
