Brighter bursts indicate the focus of stereo energy; this is especially visible with centered mono signals. I used Monofilter on a sustaining stereo pad that I had developed through a nice mix of stereo effects using reverb, multitap delays and chorus. When any node is selected, a detailed control zone indicates its filter type be it bell, or high or low shelving curve , its center frequency, Q or resonance in the case of a shelving equalizer, and current panned position. Stereoizer has a great collection of evocatively named presets to choose from, and some of them can dramatically increase output level. I found this useful in troubleshooting stereo instruments and drum kit recordings that unexplainably went off-balance.
There is also a delay percentage that increases at 0 percent or decreases at 100 percent the relative positional level of the subsequent added curves. For my music mixing, using this on individual stereo instruments is a winner. You can see how narrow the stereo field becomes in the graphic, just where it starts to open up into full stereo. Rather than compromising the full sound of the pad by just using a conventional highpass filter, I used Monofilter. Monofilter was especially useful in controlling recordings with unfortunate room resonances that led to certain bass notes causing modal ringing. Unwanted phase inconsistencies are easily taken care of; low frequencies can sound more centered and solid within the mix. The Stereoizer 3 window, showing intensity of signal across the left-right field.
. Or turn a mono instrument recording into stereo, much bigger than ever before. DynOne has been designed with fixed bands so you can literally mix in the compressed signal. It can be ever so subtle and not intrusive at all. The Auto button automatically compares input to output levels and matches; I found this to work best when adding a Stereoizer effect late in my mix process—there was no need to reset or redo automation moves for newly processed tracks. Stereoplacer window Stereoplacer finishes with an output meter to show clips and the ability to do a spectrum analysis before and after the stereo redistribution.
I found it perfect for widening mono pad tracks where I had added stereo delays, chorus and Haas effects. Related: , by Brandon T. Up to 10 color-coded parametric nodes can be used at the same time. DynOne Dynamics Plugin Many multiband compressors take too much time to set up and tweak. Stereoplacer 3 redistributes the stereo balance by frequency in a practical way. Then you may set the low-frequency node below which all audio will be mono.
You can tempo-lock in subdivisions and you have a choice of sine, triangle, square or random wave modulation sources. DynOne has min-max values for attack and release, and applies variable timing values depending on whether the signal is transient in nature or not. Visually, you can see exactly where to set this point, and it is adjustable relative to frequency with the high width control. It is neutral at 100 percent and collapses toward mono with values less than 100 percent or widens out with values above 100 percent. It is not like using a Haas effect or phase shifting. Both processors are usable and adjustable separately or will function together.
Or add depth to dry recordings without changing the tone or timbre? This feature in 0 percent is true solo of just the frequency and its current panned location. . . . . .
