mathewlane.com has announced the release of DrMS, a plug-in that presents a new way to approach the manipulation of stereo audio. It is based on MS (Mid-Side) processing, although DrMS splits the stereo signal into four sections rather than the normal two, giving you new levels of control: zoom in, add depth, change width or any combination and more. DrMS takes you wherever you want to go in the stereo field.
Each of the four sections has a resonant high pass filter to clean up the lows and a tilt equalizer to soften the highs, plus a sample-based delay line to slightly shift the signal against the other sections. The level and combination of the different sections will result in various changes of the stereo field.
The flexible controls ensure a wide range of applications, both for mixing and mastering as well as for post production. Use DrMS for tasks going from simple MS encoding/decoding, over stereo field and depth enhancement, to fixing mono compatibility issues and more.
For easy A/B comparison between original and processed signal, an autogain circuit is build in to ensure a level matched output.
Pricing & Availability
DrMS costs €25 (excl. VAT). It requires the Pluggo Runtime which provides compatibility with AU, VST and RTAS plug-in formats on Mac OS X and Windows. A demo version is available.
