Description: A journey through space and width…
The SSL Stereo Image plugin is based on Fusion hardware processors. Stereo Image is designed to emulate the analog processors of the Fusion hardware.
Stereo Image provides you with mid-side processing circuitry from the Fusion Analogue Stereo hardware processor, which uses an analog process to separate signals. Renowned for its natural sounding and 3D enhancement capabilities, the Stereo Image plugin allows you to fine-tune the width, depth, and space around your sounds, instruments, vocals, and entire mix.
This analog circuit uses a technique that splits the stereo signal into two channels: the sum (L + R) for sounds in the center (Mid) and the difference signal (LR) for sounds left and right (Side ), allowing you to narrow or widen the stereo image with the WIDTH control .
The SPACE circuit is a frequency-dependent width control based on the Stereo Shuffling concept, allowing you to add interesting depth effects to your mix. The Stereo Image plugin provides a brand new SHUFFLE control to change the cutoff frequency in the SPACE chain, allowing you to add weight and presence or cut space into the stereo field.
Modeled on the SSL Fusion Stereo Image Processor
Based on EMI engineer Alan Blumlein’s invention of modern stereo in 1931: Stereo Shuffling
WIDTH control lets you increase the level of the side signal to narrow or widen the stereo image
SPACE control allows you to experiment with a broad bass-frequency boost or cut in the side signal
SHUFFLE parameter allows additional tweaking to the frequency cut-off in the SPACE circuit
Visualize the stereo image of the signal using the polar sample plot vector scope
Use SOLO SIDE to audition the stereo component of the signal
Modeled using a combination of real-life measurements, analogue circuit designs, and close collaboration with the original analogue designers of the SSL FUSION hardware
Preset management and A/B-ing system
Comes loaded with presets from world-class producers and engineers, including: Adrian Hall, Alan Moulder, Caesar Edmunds, Charlie Holmes, Michael Brauer, Romesh Dodangoda and Sean Divine
