RJ Studios updates True Mid/Side, MidSide Channel Extractor to v1.2.0 - Algorithm enhancements

Raising Jake Studios

RJ Studios has updated True Mid/Side, Mid<>Side Channel Extractor to version 1.2.0 with new features including:

  • Algorithm enhancement that now routes polarity inverted Left/Right channel signals to the Side outputs producing a cleaner separation with some sources.
  • Approximate 15% reduction in CPU load.
  • Slightly larger UI for improved visibility in some DAWs.

Here's what they say:

Traditional "Mid/Side" processing is often a misnomer for what is technically "sum and difference" processing. In this traditional approach the "Mid" output is simply the mono sum of left and right (M=L+R) while the "side" output is the mono difference of left and right (S=L-R). Any signals panned hard left or hard right - which are actually pure "side" signals - will appear in both the Mid and Side outputs. Meanwhile, the "Side" output is a mono mix containing both the left and right sides. This is not how we hear stereo and is not "true" Mid/Side.

"True Mid/Side" actually separates the phantom center (what we hear in the middle of a stereo mix) from the stereo side signals. The stereo Side signals are separated to their respective Left and Right sides. All three resultant signals (Left-Center-Right) can be exported and controlled independently. Signals panned to the center of the stereo mix (the "Phantom Center") emerge ONLY in the Middle/Center output while signals hard-panned Left/Right in the stereo mix emerge ONLY in the Side outputs (and on the same side they appear in the stereo mix).

True Mid/Side offers a choice of two different separation algorithms including the original "Linear" mode and the new default "Power" mode which produces even greater separation and detail in the side channels.

True Mid/Side features 3 pairs of stereo output channels including the Main Stereo Outs, Mid only and Side only outputs. This allows True Mid/Side to produce simultaneous Mid and Side outputs in DAWs and helper apps that can support multiple I/O pins.

True Mid/Side's "Power Mono" output mode produces a mono mix using true power summing of left and right channels (vs. typical simple addition/mix) which captures more of the ambience and balance that we hear in stereo for a fuller, more accurate mono mix.

True Mid/Side is a 64-bit plugin in VST, VST3 and AAX formats for Windows PC and VST, VST3, AAX and AU formats for Mac OS 10.11+ on Intel and Apple Silicon.

Price: $39.95. Free 14-day trial demos are available for download at RJ Studio's website. Current owners of True Mid/Side are encouraged to download the free update from the RJ Studios website.
