Been demoing this plugin for a while (with Winamp, Foobar, MYMP3PRO and some music creation software) and it seems to be an excellent product, if you're looking features like Panorama offers.

Panorama

Binaural virtual acoustics processor plug-in for VST, MAS, Audio Units, RTAS, and DirectX host applications.

Go beyond the limitations of conventional stereo, without using a surround system!

Panorama is a specialized tool for creating stunningly realistic 3-D audio scenes using regular stereo sound. The DSP technology in Panorama reproduces psychoacoustic sound localization and distance cues, allowing you to pan sounds in three dimensions: not just left and right, but up, down, front, back, near, and far. Panorama combines 3-D audio panning with acoustic environment modeling, including wall reflections, reverberation, distance modeling, and the Doppler pitch effect. While primarily intended for headphone listening, Panorama also includes a crosstalk canceller for playback over conventional stereo loudspeakers.

* Position and move sound in three dimensions
* Uses Head-Related Transfer Functions (HRTF) to reproduce binaural sound localization cues.
* Integrated reverberation and distance cues
* Extensive control over dimensions and surface material of all six surfaces of the room
* Doppler pitch effect
* Full automation support for creating moving sounds
* Crosstalk canceller for loudspeaker playback

Applications:

* Create realistic sound scenes
* Make special 3-D and moving sound effects in conventional stereo productions
* Unique mixing tool - position musical instruments in a virtual space
* Podcasting production - Add an amazing sense of 3-D space to podcast audio
* Essential tool for headphone audio production


FYI, there are a Panorama demo (30 day) and some demo sounds available @ WaveArts site.

NOTE:
To get the Panorama working with Winamp or/and Foobar, you need

for VST -version of Panorama
- a "VST Host DSP for Winamp" plugin for both Winamp and Foobar

for DX -version of Panorama
- DirectX Host DSP for WinAmp - (like Adapt-X (shareware, for WMP too) or FFX-4 (freeware)

-and the bridge plugin for winamp DSP for Foobar (to get Winamp plugins into use on Foobar)

being installed on your system.
