Ourafilmes has announced the release of M/Ster Balance, a free VST effect for Windows designed to control the tone of the sound and the stereo field with only 4 knobs through an intelligent algorithm.
It features a transparent crossover filter that divides the signal in 2 bands: low (mono) and high (stereo). You control the balance of those 2 bands. Then the signal goes to a Mid-Side processor where you control the balance of the stereo field. A final gain stage allows you to compensate differences of level so you can compare the sound before and after the plugin processing. There is even a final onboard limiter (acts at 0dB FS – prevents clipping), if you ever need it.
Based on technologies from several of my VST plugins (Master, Bass Bus, M/S EQ and Speaker Blower), those big knobs allow you to have total control over the sound. Use this plugin for tonal effects, eq/filtering, reverb control, stereo field control, phase control,… It´s great for tracking, mixing and mastering. This is a 32 bit VST plugin.
There are no user presets so experimentation is the key to success! Check the video to see how it works!
M/Ster Balance is available for instant download via Ourafilmes. No registration is required and donations are much appreciated.
