RJ Studios releases "SideMinder ME" - Mastering Edition of SideMinder
Sunday June 16, 2019. 12:14 PM , from Gearslutz
SideMinder ME is an advanced version of the famous SideMinder plugin that can increase (or decrease) the stereo width of a track, bus and/or master mix while automatically preventing over-widening and negative correlation that causes signal loss when mixed or played in mono.
SideMinder ME includes up to 3 bands of stereo width control that ranges from mono up to 200% width enhancement plus a Bass Narrow control that tapers the stereo width below the selected cutoff frequency (especially important when mastering for vinyl).
The most important and unique feature of SideMinder ME are its stereo Width Limiters. These limiters use latency-compensated look ahead correlation detectors that "listen to" the stereo signal and precisely and rapidly turn down the stereo width when the signal approaches negative correlation. Additional stages of filtering control the recovery speed of the width limiting action which is adjustable via the Speed control. An output correlation meter displays the output signal correlation allowing before/after effects of the processing to be observed. Also included are gain trim controls, advanced limiter controls, mono/stereo and normal/delta listen buttons.
SideMinder ME can be used as an audio processing tool to automatically increase and control stereo width or it can be used as a visualization/metering tool to help make better mix decisions.
SideMinder ME is a 64-bit plugin in VST2 and VST3 formats for PC and VST2, VST3 and AU formats for Mac.
