Control And Effect The Stereo Space Of Your Mixes


G-Sonique tells us that Mid-Side: stereophonic harmonic generator/vitalizer+ is a stereo enhancer and processor with brand new technology for vitalizing, coloring, controlling, adjusting and widening stereo material (the side part of a signal) as well as adding space, width and depth to the mixes. They say that Mid-Side: SHG/V+ is a useful tool for mixing and mastering. Here's what they have to say about it...
If you ever tried a classic stereo enhancer and you think that it is really all you will need in your mixes? Then you probably have never tried Mid-Side: Stereophonic harmonic generator/vitalizer+ We can guarantee to you that after trying it once, this new stereo widening/vitalizing technology will surely become an indispensable part of all your modern sounding mixes! Every modern mix needs fat analogue sounds in combination with digital purity as well as ambiance, atmosphere, space/width and depth, Mid-Side: stereophonic harmonic generator/vitalizer will give it all to you. Mid-Side: SHG/V+ is not just a basic stereo widening tool, it is brand new way of controlling and effecting the stereo space of your mixes, adding ambiance, depth and color/higher harmonics to the stereo (side) part of your music. Basic stereo widening is a technology of the past. Mid-Side: SHG/V+ allows you to split/extract sound into Mid and Side parts of the sound and adjust the mono (mid) and stereo (side) parts according to your arbitrary requirements: equalize stereo (side) parts by two separate modules (freq, q-bandwidth, boost), add higher harmonics/analog color to the equalized stereo (side) signal, delay overall side (stereo) signal by a very few milliseconds to create theatrical atmospheres, ambiance and space or just delay one equalized/colorized/boosted part of signal to create a slight reverb effect. You can boost or attenuate the mono (mid) part, attenuate or boost the stereo (side) part by 1 to 3 times more, pass full frequency spectrum signals through a stereo (side) circuit 20hz to 20khz (by the original side signal mix level knob) or just pass through only two filtered frequencies of side harmonic generators, 1 and 2. Attention: Mid-Side: SHG/V+ works ONLY with real STEREO signals (This means 2 channels of slightly different signals, to be real stereo, the signals need to have a minute difference and not just the same one panned left and right) You can detect if your signal is a real stereo signal by changing the MID scroller to a zero amount, if you hear the SIDE stereo part of the signal, your audio is real stereo. If your channel is mono only you will not hear any SIDE (stereo) part of signal, but you can make your signal stereo by adding reverb, ping pong delay or other effects. We recommend to use Mid-Side: stereophonic harmonic generator/vitalizer+ on individual mixer channels during mixing. Mid-Side: SHG/V+ can be used also on stereo Bus / master channel during Mixing or Mastering using more gentle settings. Features
  • Mid (mono) level slider for attenuating or boosting the Mid (mono) part of the sound by up to twice the amount.
  • Side (stereo) level slider for attenuating or boosting the Side (stereo) part of the sound by up to 3 times more.
  • Side harmonic generator 2. - module that filters a defined frequency range of the side (stereo) signal within a certain bandwidth, by a frequency and bandwidth (Q) knob. Additionally you can generate higher harmonics of this band or add analogue color (by harmonics knob) and boost this frequency band of the side part of the signal.
  • Side harmonic generator 1. - similar module with an added additional time delay knob, by which you can delay selected and effected frequency bands of the side part of the signal by a few milliseconds (0-350ms) to add more ambiance, space and reverb effects.
  • Side signal module to set additional parameters of the side (stereo) extracted part of the signal such as :
  • Original side signal mix level knob to set how much of the full frequency (20hz-20khz) signal of the extracted side (stereo) part of the sound will be mixed with the filtered side signals from the Side harmonic generators 1 and 2.
  • Side signal total delay knob for very transparent (almost inaudible) signal delay of SIDE (stereo) part of signal towards the MID (mono) part of signal to create a better ambiance, depth and stereoscopic atmosphere of the effected sound/channel.
  • Bypass for comparing your track with and without the effect
  • Dry/Wet knob for precise setting how much of effect will be applied
  • Preset manager with 15 precisely selected example presets for mix and mastering
  • (parameters are set to high values in order to show you maximal possibilities of Mid-Side: SHG/V+ , in real use (during pro mixing or mastering) you will probably use more gentle settings or turn Dry/Wet knob towards more "Dry" sound level of effect)
