Mid-Side Processing Added in Soniformer 2.2 Update
May 28, 2004
Voxengo's Soniformer is a mastering tool that allows the user to form and reform the sonic structure of any sound material by means of an extensive multi-band compression and expanding.
Version 2.2 introduces mid-side processing modes. In MS mode Soniformer encodes L/R stereo signal into mid and side channels which can be then compressed or expanded as needed. After processing is performed, the M/S signal is converted into L/R signal.
Voxengo Soniformer features:
- Spectral compression
- Envelope-driven parameters
- 32-band spectrum analyzer
- Mid/side processing
- Gain change meters
- Stereo linking envelope
- Stereo width envelope
- Two level detector types
- "A-to-B" comparisons
- Factory presets
- Mono-to-Stereo, Stereo-to-Stereo processing
- Sample rates up to 192 kHz supported
- Native assembler DSP code
- 64-bit internal precision
Beside this Soniformer update, a new free plug-in called SPAN has been released. SPAN is an FFT spectrum analyzer with a variety of analysis modes.
