In this free tutorial brought to you with the support of Nugen Audio, Production Expert team member Julian Rodgers demonstrates using the Mid-Side module in SigMod to transform LR stereo plug-ins to mid-side plug-ins.
Mid-Side And Back Again
The Mid-Side module is very simple, simply switch it in and your left and right channels are converted into their mid and side components. Because this is a reversible operation, if you use a pair of mid-side modules then the stereo signal changes format and then changes back again: LR-MS-LR.
Any stereo plug-in inserted into the signal path between the two instances of SigMod will operate in MS. If they are unlinked, multi-mono then different processing can be applied to the mid or sides channel without any dedicated MS mode needed in that plugin, SigMod handles it all.
This is the second of three SigMod tutorials so check back in a couple of weeks for the final tutorial.
