Until July 12th 2019 our friends at Nugen Audio are offering their Focus Bundle, which is made up of their Stereoizer, Monofilter and Stereoplacer plug-ins with a 30% discount down from $199 to $139.
Nugen Audio Fous Bundle With Stereoizer, Stereoplacer and Monofilter
Check out our review of the predecessor of the Focus Bundle called the StereoPack, which had the same 3 plug-ins that are in the Focus Bundle.
In this review, Mike takes a look at the three plug-ins Stereoizer, StereoPlacer and MonoFilter, that make up the Nugen Audio StereoPack which is now known as the Focus Bundle.
Nugen Audio Stereoizer Tutorials
In this free video tutorial, brought to you with the support of Nugen Audio, you will learn an alternative to panning that also places percussion tracks in the stereo image of mixes using Stereoizer by Nugen Audio. Percussion is often recorded in mono, but Stereoizer can transform these tracks into natural sounding stereo percussion tracks in seconds.
Stereoizer enables users to transform mono audio tracks into wide stereo audio and further into extreme wide audio resulting in very natural sounding wide stereo tracks that are also mono compatible.
Stereoizer features two clever width algorithms:
Inter-aural Intensity Difference (IID) control zone
Inter-aural Time Difference (ITD) control zone
Nugen Audio MonoFilter Tutorials
Watch the tutorial to see and hear how MonoFilter focuses wide stereo sub bass in a mix in preparation for mastering. We strongly recommend you wear a set of studio headphones to be able to fully appreciate the demonstration.
In this demonstration, we show you how to centre a kick drum that is more pronounced in the right side of the stereo image as this was the result of the Glyn Johns drum overhead configuration being used to record the drums.
Monofilter by Nugen Audio is a very powerful yet simple to use tool that enables users to control the stereo width and phase correlation of low frequencies.
Nugen Audio Stereoplacer Tutorial
In this free video tutorial, Marcus Huyskens demonstrates how to use Stereoplacer on a mono bongos track to widen the stereo image, as well as pull out some harmonic detail and add it to the stereo field.
When dealing with Audio loops or previously recorded material, we really don’t have too much control over the stereo spectrum or sonic qualities of the mix. This is especially true when it comes to mono audio files. There are some tricks we can pull out of our magic bags, like the Haas effect, and stereo width plugin, but these are still for the most part dependent on the program material.
However, Stereoplacer by Nugen Audio offers a unique perspective on dealing with this issue. Essentially, it allows you to place nodes on the EQ spectrum, and adjust their stereo width in the stereo field. In addition, it can also allow the user to further adjust the harmonics of a given signal and pull their harmonic detail out as well.
