reFuse Software releases Mid-Side Suite and Flipper for Windows                  29th May 2009

reFuse Software has released Windows versions of its free Mid-Side Suite and Flipper plug-ins.

The Mid-Side Suite consists of two plug-ins: MS from LR (the encoder) and MS to LR (the decoder).

- You have recorded material using a mid-side microphone pair, and you want to decode this on playback into stereo. In this case, you would simply place the MS to LR plug-in on a stereo buss, and feed the L side of the buss the mid mic, and the R side of the buss the side mic. Use the stereo width knob on the MS to LR to determine the stereo spread.

- Alternately, you can use both these plug-ins to selectively process mid and side information from a standard stereo track. In this case, you would place MS from LR at the start of your effects chain. Then, insert other plug-ins, like compression or EQ, and set these to operate in multi-mono mode. This will give you independent control over the two channels. You can now, for example, apply compression to just the mid channel, or place a hi-pass filter on the side channel… or whatever other crazy stuff you wanna try. At the end of the effects chain, place a MS to LR plug-in, to bring the two channels back to LR stereo. If you don't want to affect the stereo spread, just leave the dial at 50/50, which is the default setting.

Mid-Side Suite uses the Pluggo standard, and requires installation of the free Pluggo Jr or Pluggo Runtime in order to function.

 

Flipper flips signal polarity (misnomered often as "phase"). That's it.

Flipper flips signal polarity (misnomered often as "phase"). That's it. Why should you care, when so many plug-ins already include a polarity switch in them? Well, because so many DAWs do not include a polarity switch right on their mixers. This means that, instead of being able to try different polarities with ONE click of the mouse, you must open some random plug-in, hunt for the polarity switch, and then hit it.

The idea of the Flipper is to effectively add a polarity switch to any DAW mixer. If the Flipper is on, it's flipping polarity. If it's in Bypass, it's not.
