In this free video tutorial, Pro Tools Expert team member Julian Rodgers uses the bx_stereomaker from Plugin Alliance on acoustic guitar to demonstrate the facilities offered by this clever plug-in which claims to be able to create convincing pseudo-stereo effects from mono sources without compromising mono-compatibility.
Stereo From Mono
In this tutorial Julian demonstrates the settings used to dramatically enhance the stereo spread of mono material, while preserving mono compatibility, something which is usually compromised by pseudo-stereo processes. This isn't a stereo spreader plug-in and is supposed to be used on mono material only. Julian demonstrates how successfully mono compatibility is preserved by auditioning the original mono source in stereo against the pseudo-stereo version in mono using a clever trick using the Air Stereo Widener plug-in as a software Mono button - a trick so useful you should watch this tutorial just to see that if you don't already know it!
