You're right but in this case you're just removing the 'natural' course of things, all master buses on consoles are stereo and they do process channels independently (unless they have a stereo link feature) as well as all stereo devices. As you say, and correcting what I previously stated, there are phase shifts that may alter information across the spectrum but this is normal in the analogue world. Setting up Mid-Side processing is good, as you mention, but for regular mixes this is not bad at all (it actually may help your stereo image in some cases). I wouldn't worry about this too much unless you're mastering for Vynil, where most of these phase shifts are 'corrected' in some way.

Cheers

my solution... place a HPF about 120hz on the side band in an MS EQ after the AlexB EQ :)


Or use this great tool: Brainworx bx_control v2
Also great to open OH, Rooms, Pads etc. and as meter.

OR

Use SHEPPI

I agree. You wouldn't worry about this because it's natural in the analog world. I have compared the hardware with the program and they act exactly at the same way. This is analogue sound, not a precise-digital sound.

Hi AlexB,

I've not had a chance to upgrade my consoles to the latest, will do soon.

Question though ... these new stereo presets.

For my mastering work, I've been normally splitting the stereo [2-trk] masters into L & R, and processing each 'side' with its' own Nebula insert.

With the new 'stereo' presets, do I understand that I would not have to do this anymore?

The only 'sticking point' would be utilizing the PAN plug. i.e.: a simple chain I would use might be:
1. console input
2.PAN
3. BUS or Master section

maybe a Tape plug might also be used.

Anyway ... trying to understand just how this is implemented.

Thanks! and looking forward to updating all my libs.

I don't understand why the people worry or ask about stereo programs... The stereo programs are an UPGRADE, A PLUS, and they don't substitute the original mono instance. Try it and if you like than you use it, if you don't like than you don't use it... It's simple....
