ReStereo convolution based engine offers a new digital algorithm that dramatically differs from the convention band splitting/delaying approach used to generate stereo from a mono audio source. Instead of conventional 4-5 bands that are delayed the phase of each individual frequency in the impulses is adjusted with over a 1000 frequency points that give this plugin audiophile fidelity.
This precision means that with ReStereo you can access what was once only achievable at the recording stage. It does not sound like a stereo plug-in: it sounds like a new stereo recording. With live stereo-miking engineers have to carefully control phase and pick-up patterns, using specific microphones when recording in only the best acoustic spaces to minimize notches or comb filter effects in the audio spectrum. ReStereo field impulses were designed to solve these practical recording challenges.
Simple to use - just select from one of 25 patches. Each has a unique stereo field that ranges in size from a solo instrument up to a very large ensemble. This process realistically adds depth, clarity and a sense of width and emotional immediacy to any track.
Each stereo field's width and its pan position can be adjusted. These features enable the user to work extensively on several mono tracks without it sounding like the same effect.
The ReStereo convolution approach accurately preserves the transients and the overall frequency response by avoiding the use any 1-20 millisecond delays in parts of the spectrum found in traditional mono to stereo plugins.
The complex and unique phase patterns in each of ReStereo impulses gives every mono track a clearer sense of space, immediacy and realism that is fundamentally different from what a mono recording can provide alone. That's because ReStereo mimics the way we really hear things: in real-life, with what each of our ears hears and places sounds realistically in the world around us. Without that information, we sub-consciously recognize the sound as artificial.
