In this free video tutorial, Pro Tools Expert Team member Julian Rodgers looks at the Brainworx bx_control V2 from Plugin Alliance. This plug in offers comprehensive M/S tools as well as useful metering options.
Learn as Julian uses the bx_control V2 to process the middle and sides of a mix using stock multi-mono plugins.
Why Process In M/S?
Processing the middle and sides of a mix independently is popular in mastering as it allows changes to be made to elements which are in the middle of the stereo field without affecting elements at the edges and vice versa. For example this can mean tweaks to lead vocals, kick and snare can be made from a stereo master without having to go back to the multitrack.
