Brainworx bx_stereomaker

From Mono to Stereo With Ease!

Overview

WIDE & TIGHT!

The bx_stereomaker is a frequency-optimized M/S upmixing plugin that quickly and easily converts mono signals to stereo.

How many times have you had to deal with a well-recorded signal that just won´t fit in the mix because it´s mono? With modern mixes becoming both tighter and wider, adding reverb or modulation effects can easily destroy the tight center of a mono lead vocal, guitar, or synth track. Still, you need to process and spread those sounds to lay them perfectly into the mix. So what now?

bx_stereomaker, that’s what.

bx_stereomaker creates a virtual S signal with analog style filters using Brainworx legendary M/S stereo algorithms. This friendly plugin will take any mono signal and make it stereo while allowing you to balance the center position. You can even focus the process on specific frequency ranges in your signal. And you can solo the virtual S signal!

    I've been hunting for a plugin like this for ages. It's hard to get phase coherence and width with other stereo wideners, but this provides the best of both worlds. Keeping your song big and present in mono is crucial for clubs and festivals, and this plugin helps achieve this with a few simple controls.
