Description

Summary

The Stereo Image Plug-in is modelled on the mid-side processing circuit from the SSL Fusion stereo outboard hardware processor. This true-analogue circuit utilizes a technique that separates a stereo signal into two channels: a sum (L+R) for the sounds in the center (Mid) and a difference signal (L-R) for the sounds on the left and right (Side) allowing you to narrow or widen the stereo image using the WIDTH control.

The SPACE circuit is a frequency-dependent width control based on the concept of Stereo Shuffling, allowing you to inject interesting depth effects into your mix. Stereo Image Plug-in exposes a brand-new SHUFFLE control for changing the frequency cut-off in the SPACE circuit, allowing you to add weight and presence or carve space in the stereo field.

Key Features

  • Modelled on the SSL Fusion Stereo Image processor
  • Based on EMI engineer Alan Blumlein’s invention of modern stereo in 1931: Stereo Shuffling
  • WIDTH control lets you increase the level of the side signal to narrow or widen the stereo image
  • SPACE control allows you to experiment with a broad bass-frequency boost or cut in the side signal
  • SHUFFLE parameter allows additional tweaking to the frequency cut-off in the SPACE circuit
  • Visualise the stereo image of the signal using the polar sample plot vector scope
  • Use SOLO SIDE to audition the stereo component of the signal
  • M/S monitoring
  • Modelled using a combination of real-life measurements, analogue circuit designs, and close collaboration with the original analogue designers of the SSL FUSION hardware
  • Preset management and A/B-ing system
  • Comes loaded with presets from world-class producers and engineers, including: Adrian Hall, Alan Moulder, Caesar Edmunds, Charlie Holmes, Michael Brauer, Romesh Dodangoda and Sean Divine
