M/S Mastering from Plugin Alliance is a software bundle featuring six plug-ins capable of Mid/Side (M/S) processing. Included are analog modeled and digital M/S EQs, compressor, limiter, saturator and just as importantly, M/S metering. All of these processors can aid in crafting interesting and coherent mixes.

  • bx_digital V2 - Mastering Processor Plug-In (Download)
    The bx_digital V2 from Brainworx is a state-of-the-art digital mastering processor that provides a mastering-class eleven-band equalizer, mid/side de-esser, mono-maker and intelligent bass- and presence-shifters, plus extra mid/side features such as pan and stereo width control. The software delivers all of the functions of the company's Modus EQ bx1 hardware, including the M/S-solo-buttons, and several additional functions such as Auto Listen, etc.

    The plug-in comprises three modes. Conventional left and right stereo mode for stereo/dual mono applications, and a stereo mode with a built-in M/S-matrix, mainly used for stereo mastering purposes. A three-channel mode (stereo plus one mono channel) is provided for surround mastering and recording studios purposes. An M/S-recording mode uses two individual microphone signals to create a highly mono-compatible stereo signal, mainly used for orchestral recordings, choirs or for recording acoustic instruments in general.
    Three modes including mid/side mastering, mid/side recording, and left/right stereo
    "SixPack" master section with six knobs
    Eleven-band EQ
    Shifter EQs up to 22kHz
    Built-in M/S de-esser/dynamic EQ (20 Hz to 22 kHz)
    Precise correlation and balance metering
    Individual bypass and link for every feature
    Four presets, copy/paste, undo/redo for all functions
    Auto solo and auto listen modes for TDM and Native systems
    Individual pan for mid and side signals
    Phase-corrected solo buttons for left/right/mid/side signals
    Intelligent EQs: Bass-shift and presence-shift
    Mono-Maker makes bass frequencies in a stereo file mono only
    Extensive metering, individual left/right and mid/side LEDs
    Touch-sensitive Auto Solo supports ICON solo modes
    Seven-band EQ perfectly matches the center section ICON-EQ
    Mouse over feature allows for adjusting parameters by holding the mouse over the bass-drum or the pedal and turning the mouse wheel
  • bx_meter - Dynamic Range Meter with M/S Mode Plug-In (Download)
    The bx_meter from Brainworx is a dynamic range meter plug-in with an M/S (Mid/Side) mode that allows for visually analyzing audio signal in many useful ways. The software displays peak and RMS values of mixes, and can also show the relationship between both using the centered dynamic LEDs.

    A mid/side mode is available in addition to the standard left/right mode, and offers three different weightings for displaying the dynamics in ways that users like to hear them. For additional monitoring, solo switches are provided.
    Peak, RMS and dynamic range metering with left/right and mid/side modes
    Numeric displays for Peak, RMS and dynamic range
    Peak hold and RMS hold function
    Stereo, link and M/S modes
    View mid and side signal separately
    Balance and correlation meters
    Left/right flip easily swaps left and right channels of any stereo signal or the master summing bus
    Solo listen buttons for left, right, mid and side signals
    Weighing filters (A, C, K) including solo listening mode
    Bob Katz K-Metering standards: K-20, K-14, K-12
    Floating dynamic LEDs
    "Legacy" look mode
  • bx_saturator - M/S and Multiband Saturation Plug-In (Download)
    The bx_saturator from Brainworx is an M/S and multi-band saturation plug-in suitable for mastering, mixing, and sound-design. It offers a warm and subtle distortion on individual signals but can also be applied to the stereo master channel using the M/S stereo model. Dedicated crossover technology ensures that the mid and side channels are always perfectly in phase.

    Uses include increasing the perceived volume of mixes without clipping them, or bringing out certain signals like acoustic guitars and percussion in full mixes without increasing actual levels or applying EQ to them. Distort vocals in full mixes without adversely affecting the drums or the clarity of keyboard sounds and stereo guitars. Thirty presets are provided for getting started straight away.
    M/S and multiband saturation and distortion for mastering, mixing and sound-design
    Adds warm and subtle distortion on individual signals or the stereo master channel in the M/S stereo configuration
    "True-Split" crossover technology ensures that mid and side channels are perfectly in phase
    Thicken and boost any stereo signal or mix
    Increase the perceived volume of mixes without clipping
    Emphasize signals like acoustic guitars and percussion in full mixes without increasing levels or EQing
    Distort vocals in full mixes without losing the punch of other material
    Fatten and even slightly distort the M/S signals independently and separately for high and low frequencies
    Also offered as a mono multi-mono version
    Thirty presets for getting started right away
  • bx_XL V2 - Mastering Processor Plug-In (Download)
    bx_XL V2 from Brainworx is a low latency, M/S mastering limiter whose main purpose is to make mixes loud while keeping them clear (undistorted). Many modern productions are loud while at the same time having no dynamics. The aim of the plug-in is to make tracks as loud as any major label production and less squashed than many of them.

    The software converts stereo signals into M (mid/sum) and S (side/difference) signals and splits the M channel into two bands (high and low). This allows for limiting and leveling three individual channels to increase loudness and improve clarity of stereo mixes with much less distortion artifacts while still keeping the "punch."
    Using a crossover frequency slider, the "MidLo" channel can be used to separate the bass drum and limit it different than the rest of the mid signal, perfect for all kinds of dance, rap, techno, and rock music
    After the three channels have been mixed back together to a L/R stereo signal it runs through an additional final standard brickwall peak stop limiter which offers an adjustable master out level
    Three-band "psycho-acoustic" loudness maximizer offers four automate-able settings with copy and paste functionality
    Multiple solo, auto solo and link features enable the engineer to precisely adjust all stages of the mastering limiter
    Thirty-two steps of undo/redo
    Use as the final plug-in on the stereo master buss for mixing and mastering purposes or on any stereo bus/stereo sub group
    Detailed level meters make for a sophisticated dynamics and loudness control system
  • alpha compressor - Mastering Plug-In for Native Systems (Download)
    The alpha compressor from elysia is a native based plug-in that faithfully recreates the company's hardware mastering compressor. With integrated M/S matrix processing, two selectable compressor characteristics, a sidechain filter, parallel compression and more, the software provides all the tools needed for full mastering inside a DAW.

    Since the compression section by itself is a useful tool, a reduced-interface version of the plug-in is included as a dedicated mixing tool. All the major plug-in formats are supported for both 32- and 64-bit operating systems.
    Software recreation of the company's hardware mastering compressor
    Integrated M/S Matrix provides an alternative to standard stereo operation where the user can process the mid and side signals, while also maintaining mono compatibility
    Feed forward and feedback type of compression can be chosen for each channel individually, making two different compressors available at the push of a button
    Switchable Auto Fast semi automation always provides perfect attack and release times based on the values set by the user, even with complex material
    Niveau Filter specializes in shaping the tonal characteristics of a track very effectively with very fine nuances
    On-board, frequency selective sidechain filter
    Parallel compression
    Signal matrix allows for the direct and the processed signal to be monitored individually or together by the push of a button in each channel (left and right or mid and side)
    Soft clip limiter
    Warm mode for additional sound shaping
    Mousewheel support for setting parameters
  • Passeq - Passive 3-Band Filter Plug-In (Download)
    The Passeq from SPL is an emulation of the company's analog hardware unit, and unlike other passive EQs, delivers three-bands for both boost and cut stages. A similarity shared with these types of EQs is the use of fixed (switchable) frequency points within each band. The Passeq provides twelve switchable frequencies per band, and since boost and cut frequencies are not identical, the result is a total of seventy-two frequencies per channel, more than enough for the most elaborate EQ curves.

    The software programming faithfully reproduces the unique sound of the original hardware, with the complex interactions between each single filter reproduced in detail. Intrinsic to passive filter designs is that the signal always runs through the whole network. Whenever the settings change, interactions take place between the filters which adds to the characteristic sound of these types of EQs.

    Additionally, internal code supports mouse wheel control for the rotary controls. Place the mouse cursor over a control and move the scroll wheel to adjust the setting.
    Reproduction of all the interactions between the three passive filters
    Seventy-two filters on three bands per channel
    Emulation of input and output transformers
    Two graphical user interfaces - dual channel and space saving single channel view
    Switchable M/S mode for independent processing of mid and side information
    Mono, stereo or multi-channel operation
