This plugin is calibrated for the SCHOEPS Double M/S Microphone, but it will also work with any other Double M/S Mic Setup. It will provide optimal results only on tracks that have been recorded with a 3-microphone (Double M/S) setup.

The SCHOEPS "Double MS Tool" plugin decodes the three signals of the Double MS system. It creates a 5.0 Surround signal on the basis of three microphone signals.

The plugin enables customized, intuitive decoding on a realtime WYSIWYG basis.

With the plugin the spatial and timbral fidelity of the resulting 5.0 Surround signal can be optimally achieved.


  • Easy decoding of the Double MS microphone signals to Stereo or Surround
  • Intuitive, realtime WYSIWYG control of the virtual microphone parameters including polar pattern, offset angle, rotation and gain
  • Realtime display of the virtual microphone patterns in a coloured polar plot window
  • Increase or decrease the gain of the diffuse sound which is extracted from the signals by an a adaptive algorithm
  • Enhance spatial impression by increasing the amount of decorrelation of the extracted diffuse sound Improve the front/back localization by a high cut filter and a delay on the rear outputs
