Stereo Image Analysis Plug-Ins


Blue Cat's StereoScope series, consisting of new stereo image analysis DirectX and VST plug-ins, is a new release from the company.
The two new plug-ins both allow you to analyze the stereo image of your audio tracks in details and detect potential mono compatibility issues. Blue Cat's StereoScope Pro has specific features for single track analysis with MIDI and automation output, while Blue Cat's StereoScope Multi uses unique data sharing technology to let you analyze and monitor the stereo image of several audio tracks on a single screen.
These new plug-ins are available as separate products or within the Blue Cat's StereoScope Pack. Here’s what Blue Cat have to say about each plug-in:
Blue Cat's StereoScope Multi
Blue Cat's StereoScope Multi is a unique tool to compare the stereo image of several tracks in real time. It is the ideal solution for mixing: you can actually see which part of the stereo field every single instrument uses. It can also be used to analyze an effect chain and see how audio effects influence the stereo image of your content.
This plug-in is based on the same stereo analysis algorithms as Blue Cat's StereoScope Pro, and the instant, peak or average responses of several audio tracks can be displayed on the same graph (the plugin supports up to 16 curves). The same zooming capabilities and coordinates display let you exactly measure the characteristics of the stereo image for each audio track. The advanced routing capabilities let you can define different settings for each track and thus adapt the parameters for each audio signal you want to analyze. Our multiple tracks audio analysis tutorial shows you how to use this multitrack analysis feature.
Thanks to Blue Cat's skinning language support and the included window opacity management feature, you can adapt the plug-in user interface to your personal needs and enhance your workflow: work faster and more efficiently. Blue Cat's StereoScope Pro
Blue Cat's StereoScope Pro is a real time stereo field analyzer with multiple views and MIDI/automation output capabilities. It is a powerful help to analyze how the audio signal is spread in the stereo field, and you can easily detect potential phase and mono compatibilities issues.
The stereo analysis can be controlled in details, and the precise measurements capabilities combined with the zoomable displays let you monitor what is exactly happening. Choose your preferred view for your needs: real time stereo field display, evolution of the stereo image over time or output parameters that explicitly describe the average position and extent of the audio signal in the stereo field.
The four memory slots let you store any curve in memory: it helps you make comparisons between several tracks or effects setup very easily. you can compare your mix with other commercial hits.
Like our other professional analysis tools, the output parameters of this plug-in can be used to control other effects in real time: the generated automation envelopes or MIDI CC messages include the minimum and maximum positions in the stereo field and the perceived position based on the audio energy spread in the stereo image. Check the Peak Meter Pro Tutorials to see how to use this capability within your favorite host.
Thanks to Blue Cat's skinning language support and the included window opacity management feature, you can adapt the plug-in user interface to your personal needs and enhance your workflow: work faster and more efficiently.
