Add that transformer mojo.
- INPUT METER
Segmented metering showing the input level, with 3s peak hold, for a clear indication of peaks in the signal.
- MID/SIDE MONITORING
Switches the input meter to show mid signal on the left, and the side signal on the right.
- INPUT TRIM
Applies gain to the input signal.
Bypasses plug-in processing.
See how ‘stereo’ your signal is.
The central polar sample plot lets you visualise the stereo image of the incoming signal.
As you adjust the SHUFFLE, SPACE, and WIDTH controls, you will see the signal become wider or narrower.
Samples (dots) appearing within the 45° lines indicate that they are in-phase.
Changes the cut-off frequency for the ‘SPACE’ control.
Broadly boosts or cuts bass frequencies, based on the ‘Stereo Shuffling’ technique.
Widens or narrows the stereo image by applying a gain to the side signal. Our sweet spot is between +2 and +4 dB!
- OUPUT TRIM
Applies gain to the output signal.
- SOLO SIDE
Listen only to the side (stereo image) of the signal.
- OUTPUT METER
Segmented metering showing the output level, with 3s peak hold, for a clear indication of peaks in the signal.
- MID/SIDE MONITORING
Switches the output meter to show mid signal on the left, and the side signal on the right.
