This is an excerpt taken from an interview with Morton Subotnick, one of the United States’ premier composers of electronic music. In this interview, he refers to “Designer” meaning IMR’s Vortex Surround Designer as software which allows composers to work in multichannel audio without limitations.

Designer facilitates the creative and expressive manipulation of individual sounds in space as well as the combining of these sounds into multichannel sound cues and fully immersive soundscapes.
With its intuitive graphic user interface and integrated set of DSP functions, Designer is a professional audio processing tool that allows the user to quickly and powerfully spatialize any mono sound file and save it as multichannel output. Each sound path can be designed with millisecond precision and then saved independently of the sound file itself, resulting in a library of spatial paths that can be re-used to process any monaural sound file. Sound paths adapt automatically to the length of each sound file. The result is a highly scalable solution that can generate unique paths and effects in a fraction of the time required when using manual panning techniques, with a higher return on investment and reduced development costs.
Designer Cost: $200.00 and not just for Surround Sound, it’s great for shaping stereo recordings!
