1. Re-Head

 
Re-Head
 

“Mixing room experience with headphone convenience”

Enjoy studio monitor sound in your headphones with Re-Head, a unique head-response plugin.

Re-Head uses a head response model to recreate the effect of your head and skull on the audio coming in from your speakers.

Together with stereo processing, impulse response treatment, EQ and more, Re-Head takes care of the most common problems associated with headphone use in professional work: unnatural sound and ear fatigue.

For many audio professionals, listening on headphones is a necessary evil. Perhaps you need headphones when tracking? Perhaps you need to work away from your studio? Or perhaps your studio has that one neighbor that simply can’t enjoy your creative output at 3 AM in the morning? Listening through headphones creates an unnatural sound that’s quite different from how we hear music from speakers.

Re-Head will create a mixing room experience when using headphones, even when recording distorted guitars and other instruments that tend to sound unnaturally in-your-face in a headphone mix.

At the center is a head response model that mimics the effect of your own skull on your hearing when listening through loudspeakers. Add to that stereo processing to avoid the hard-panned sound so common in headphones, a spectrum analyzer and EQ. There is even an impulse response representation of your favored mixing room to let you feel right at home, even when you’re not.

Re-Head won’t replace your favorite studio monitors, for sure. But it will make the transition from speakers to headphones less dramatic.

2. Stereoplacer Elements

 
Stereoplacer Elements
 

Effortless & essential

Stereoplacer Elements is a simplified version of our Stereoplacer plug-in, allowing the same frequency-specific panoramic placement, in a lightweight package.

MAIN FEATURES

  • Reconstruct a stereo image from mono
  • Fix poor stereo microphone placement
  • Restore archive recordings
  • Tidy up samples from old records

The rest of the stereo image will remain intact, and the balance of original sounds will be preserved.

Stereo Spectrum Analysis

The graphical display in Stereoplacer Elements can be used as a Stereo differential spectrum analyser. Leaving controls in their default positions will set up the plugin in analysis mode. The incoming sound is not affected, but is analysed for stereo content, which is then displayed visually.

‘Panning’ Bass.

Panning bass sounds is usually something best avoided as off-centre high energy in the low frequencies can present more problems than it resolves. However, using Stereoplacer Elements, the low frequencies present in say a bass guitar track, can be left centre while the higher frequencies (i.e. much of the attack component) can be moved in the stereo field with a shelving band, without the usual problems of the attending lows, giving the impression that the bass part has been panned, when really it is only the high, directional information carrying frequencies that have been moved.


3. Stereoplacer

 
Stereoplacer
 

Pan control for the 21st century. Choose the frequencies you want to fix and move them anywhere, leaving the rest of the stereo image intact. Make improvements in any area of the sound stage without causing problems elsewhere. Stereoplacer gives you precise control you just can’t get within a traditional mix setup. Stereoplacer is an advanced fine-tune parametric balancing control. You can tune each band into specific frequencies and move the frequency content around in the stereo sound stage. Just choose the position you want, and let Stereoplacer take care of preserving the balance of the original sounds. With fully adjustable curves (bell, high and low shelving and even additional linked-harmonic overtones) you can redistribute stereo information with subtlety, or make powerful corrections – even moving hard-panned frequencies from one side to the other – without affecting the overall level balance of the material. Applications Mix | Sound design

  • Panning sounds with low frequency content without affecting the low end
  • Adjusting the position of sounds in sample loops
  • Fixing poor mic. placement
  • Moving specific problem frequencies away from key lead sounds as an alternative to EQ
  • Dealing with harmonically complex synth sounds
  • Addressing issues on FX laden tracks
  • Creative and complex soundfield distribution
  • A sophisticated approach to double tracking stereo distribution
  • Capturing and positioning harmonically rich percussive sounds

Mastering | Post | Restoration

  • Gentle linear phase adjustment of entire mixes
  • Re-positioning of specific elements
  • Extrapolation of poorly positioned instruments
  • ‘Side switching’ and re-balancing

5. MStereoProcessor

 
MStereoProcessor
 

MStereoProcessor is an advanced multiband stereo analyzer and enhancer plugin. Using MStereoProcessor you can make your recordings and mixes sound more professional by easily controlling stereo image and the necessary perception of depth and space.

It is a necessary tool to finish your recordings. It lets you look at and listen to the stereo field and its mono compatibility, ensuring your recording is truly placed into the center. It can widen, shrink and excite stereo field on 4 separate bands.

Features

Global panorama, widening and exciting – for starters you can modify the panorama and widening of the signal itself. The algorithm is totally transparent and mono compatible. Finally you can apply a broadband exciter to improve the clarity of each band.

  • 4 bands with separate widening and exciting – while it is often desired to have bass stereo field minimal as opposed to treble, MStereoProcessor lets you process all bands separately. You can modify the stereo field from mono to a 200% increase and even perform delayed stereo enhancement. Both algorithms are fully transparent and mono compatible. You can also apply an exciter to improve the clarity of each band. MStereoProcessor provides 3 types of crossover (analog, linear-phase, hybrid), so you can choose the optimal band separation mode for your particular audio material.
  • 2D stereo field analyzer and channel peak meters – integrated analyzers give you an accurate view of the output stereo profile, which you can use to ensure the recording is accurately wide and has correct direction.
  • Mono/stereo field check – you can easily check if your recording is mono compatible and what the stereo content actually is.
  • Mute and solo for each band – you can always listen to each band and check that each spectral part of the recording is perfect.
  • Extremely advanced and easy-to-use user interface – our products are always designed to enhance the workflow. You can easily change all values, fine-tune each control in multiple ways. Easy orientation in a standardized GUI, textual editing and smooth visualization with almost unlimited zooming are standard in all of our plugins. Moreover our plugins are the world first (and still the only ones), which support resizable and stylable GUI’s.
  • MIDI controllers with MIDI learn – you can map any parameter to any MIDI controller or MIDI keyboard and control it realtime or record and automate it.
  • Very fast, optimized for SSE and SSE2 processors.
  • Global preset management and online preset exchange – using a title button you can save your settings (which are shared on the computer) so you can easily access these in other songs. Moreover all plugins can automatically share your presets and download presets of other users from our servers (if this feature is enabled). We are building a community and you can be a part of it!
  • Fully automatable.

6. ReCenter

 
ReCenter
 

THE INSTANT STEREO FIX

ReCenter automatically repairs off-center stereo recordings while keeping the original stereo width which makes it an invaluable time-saver and a perfect tool for professional post-production.

Fix off-centered stereo field recordings, dynamically center vocal artists or musicians that moved around the stage or center hard directional effects like drive-bys and stereo whooshes.

ReCenter makes tedious panning automation obsolete so you can focus on your creative flow.

WHAT IS RECENTER?

ReCenter is a stereo processor that constantly analyses an incoming stereo signal and dynamically rotates it to the center or a given angle without altering the stereo width.

Having the incoming signal centered, you can narrow or widen the stereo image within ReCenter. For a better low frequency control you can mono the original signal below a set frequency.

A multiband processing option intelligently shifts more complicated signals.

KEY FEATURES

  • Dynamically create convenient stereo images
  • Once the center is restored, precisely alter the stereo image
  • Input stereo or M/S signals
  • Mono filter below certain frequencies
  • Multiband mode for heavy-duty applications
  • Widen or narrow the centered stereo image
  • Shift the output angle to left or right

USE CASES

  • Easily correct any stereo recording, where the microphone angle was off
  • Dynamically center a vocal artist that moved around the stage while performing
  • Center stereo whooshes, drive- or fly-bys and other hard directional effects
  • Widen instrument recordings while keeping a perfect stereophonic balance

DYNAMICALLY CORRECT STEREO IMAGES

Have you ever worked with stereo material that was not centered correctly?

Pointing a stereo microphone a hundred percent accurately onto a sound source gets harder the further away the source is. As a result, you get a recording with a constantly shifting center that would require you to manually adjust and automate the panning over the whole recording.

ReCenter continuously analyzes the directionality of a stereo or M/S signal and rotates it to a given target angle in real-time – without narrowing the stereo image.

GOOD-BYE CORRECTIVE PANNING

Correct poorly aimed or moving stereo recordings while skipping the time-consuming and most often ineffective pan automation process. All you need to do is tell ReCenter how hard, fast and precisely it should adjust your signal.

This will drastically improve your workflow and save you hours of manual and tedious panning as well as constantly checking your stereo signal. With ReCenter, you have one thing less to worry about and you can focus all your energies on your creative work.

FLEXIBLE AND YET SO EASY TO USE

ReCenter is an incredibly useful tool, a little helper you don’t want to miss once you’ve worked with it. It is very easy to set up and provides immediate clean stereo signals.
