DESCRIPTION

An original Stereoisation Circuit, which avoids introducing... Frequency Dependent Panning.

Quick, YouTube Demonstration Video... at...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iPhUgMXlins

The BEST Stereoiser I have used, and VERY simply designed. It is one component off, being a Phase Linear Stereoiser, so that has been included for comparison (too phasey).

There is only one parameter to adjust (Delay Time)... I leave it on "8"... other settings will work, but be careful as the number of samples has to be divisible by TWO. I should make a circuit that uses the right numbers at some point (or try it yourself)...

I hope this solves a lot of Stereo-isation problems for you. It should be VERY useful on Mono Breakbeats, Guitar, Vocals etc...

I would like to make a SUPER STEREO version, for magic surround sound at some point (when I have a new sound card for the job...:(

I have tried for many years to get this taken up by a manufacturer, but there has been absolutely NO interest, as they are only interested in publishing their OWN inventions... not mine... however much the USERS want it... PSP Audio were amazed... hope you are too... it's free (and patentable)...sign of the times?

My YouTube Channel... also... has a LOT of resources for Music Theory, and Guitar, that you WON'T have seen before... highly recommended to CHECK OUT... (The Ring of Solomon/ Whole Tone Scale Rotations... explained etc:)...

Also check out the FRANK FOX BOX, in the User Library... the Oscilloscope you need... for this plugin...

I quite liked this. It turned an otherwise wimpy monopoly synth into a nice wash of pads. Good work!

My Moniotors (Mackie 824s) are a 19" rACK APART... THEY SOUND BETTER that way (I like centre bass for the kick drum)... anything by the Beastie Boys ("New Style" etc).. is a good test for your kicks...

...the more I think about it... IF... you are finding 0-90 degrees stereo-isation... TOOO WIDE... there is something up with your audio system??? I suspect your studio monitors are placed more than FOUR FEET apart? You will lose centre BASS imaging, at the expense of a wide stereo (pan) perspective at your (Equilateral Triangle)... listening position. I used to do this too... better panning, WORSE centre bass illusion??? @nswers on a comment section... lets chat :) ?...

...would YOU like to work on this circuit with me... I would appreciate the input/ help... but will continue @nyway:)...?

...you can even boost the mids at your snare frequency... subtle, but effective :)

...thats absolutely fine. I should have explained myself, and the way the circuit was going to work LIVE, in my description. I found your confusion VERY helpful, as it is obviously something that needs to be addressed, or else... someone wouldn't have been confused by it? You can insert a High Pass Filter into the chain for the Difference Signal (sum and difference matrix near the output)... in fact a three band mixer/ desk eq on the difference will sculpt the stereo pan, nicely to taper tops and bottom frequencies (really easy for you to wire in)... Dont take the "troll" joke seriously... they are ALL really lovely people on the USER LIBRARY... that is the POINT of this place... WELCOME :):):)...

Okay, error on my part regarding mono compatibility--I'll eat crow on that one. Nevertheless, I would really urge an optional crossover point, as really wide stereo

Try just putting in a mono sum button after the FX... really good MONO COMPATIBILITY :)

...comb filtering explained then... you are summing the original, with the processed, without delaying by half way between the two delay values? Scared me fora second there... thanks again:) (really useful comment:)...

I will make you a circuit that SYNCS the original audio, and the Stereoiser... it is a simple delay... half way between the other two... I think this is what you are referring to, as if you run this live... it will be out by the delay amount anyway... and the mono sum is actually somewhere in between... sorry for the confusion ... I assure you MONO compatibility is EXCELLENT...:):):)... I use this as an offline processor. I will make a LIVE version for you?

It only stereoises between 0 and 90 Degrees... the is the best type of stereo-isation for Mono compatibility. Some Albums actually sound better through the plugin, rather than the original stereo??? What did you have a problem with (phase linear I suspect, which is awful:(

Interesting... I have found MONO compatibility, to be excellent. The Phase Linear...NO. I have a Phase Inversion Design for Crossovers and Filters (I think Moog used some at one point?)... bit overkill on something that works so well, and SIMPLY... ahhh (you mean VINYL...YES:) I agree... thank you so much for the suggestions... I will work on it. It IS a very interesting algorithm... The two signals SUM to give a signal at a time point exactly BETWEEN the two... you can chain multiple layers this way (same Ratios)... surround etc... I think the Panning Information... is translated into 0 to 90 Phase... how it works is beyond me... I designed this on a hunch that two delays and some matrixing would work... strangely, it did :) Hope You enjoy using this in your recording/ synthesisers... but is it the best stereoiser you have used? (BASS COMPATIBILTY IS FOR ... needles not jumping during lathe cutting...

Interesting algorithm. Mono compatibility is pretty questionable, but that's always true of comb filtering-based stereo effects. I would strongly suggest using a crossover to optionally bypass low frequencies (check the core library) as it's usually undesirable to have wide stereo below a couple hundred Hz. Otherwise it works well and sounds pretty natural. Thanks!
