    Default Re: m/s encoder decoder recommendations

    This has dual mono - but also has modes that will process the mid or side:

    ...look in the 'process mod' section.

    Has anyone used this? this is one crazy looking plugin.

    Man - this looks terrific! Thanks for posting it. I couldn't find the 'process mod' section. But, in the 'Process Target' section, there's an option to process, "...Stereo, Mono, Left, Right, Sum and Diff...". And, by 'sum' they mean mid, and by 'diff' they mean side. So, I think that means that you can make equalization changes to everything at once, just one side, just the middle, or just the sides. And, I think you can also accomplish compression within just those areas. It also mentions that you can gang multiple instances of it serially to make changes to each of those independently (but within the same track) and that this won't require much more processing than just one.


    I'm definitely going to try this one. The user interface looks kinda complex, but it's a complex tool too - so maybe it has to be. One thing I'm wondering is whether, if you are using multiple copies of the effect on the same track serially, is whether each downstream copy is operating on the result from the previous one or not. It seems like it probably would because it's happening within the rules of VST (in which effects are serially additive, rather than parallel), but... it's digital so it wouldn't necessarily have to be, I wouldn't think.

    They have this nice video promoting a subset of the tools capabilities. It also covers the differences between the standard (free) and pay ($60) version.

I'll probably fire up my rig tomorrow and I'll see if any of the plugins I have operate in that mode (not that I have many).
    I think you will be blown away with this plugin which has great control over sides/compression/EQ/tonality - all in One Plugin!
    (really 5 plugins in 1, which can be rearranged in processing order)

    I was browsing a couple of the waves plugins a while ago. It wasn't clear to me from their requirements page, are most of these available in a form that will run in SS or SS64 (I'm still 98% in the 32 bit world)?
