Stereo Tool features ultra precise control of input gain and individual pan for left and right channels. A phase inverter is available on each channel. Global stereo pan and stereo width settings are also implemented to complete the management of the stereo signal. Stereo Tool also offers accurate visual feedback reflecting the signal content. A vector scope display, PPM meters for both inputs and outputs, and a phase correlation meter permanently monitor the signal. Inserting our Stereo Tool after a BitterSweet II, will open your mind to new ways of controlling the stereo stage. Like all Flux:: plug-ins it features 64 bit floating point processing, up to 8 FS (384 KHz). Stereo Tool is only available in native version for AU, RTAS and VST. Neither Flux or iLok dongle, nor registration are required.
Signal Processing Features Plug-in Input Gain controls for adjusting the level for left and right channels before processing. Phase, inverts the phase of the incoming signal on left and right channels. Panning, Individual pan control for left and right channels. Global Stereo Width and Pan settings providing precise management of the stereo signal. Bypass routes the incoming signal direct to the output for a true smooth transition between processed and clean signal. Preset and Parameter Handling Preset/Parameter slots To enhance the workflow the two Preset/Parameter slots, A and B, can be loaded with two full set of parameters at the same time. Apart from saving each preset, a "Global Preset" containing both the A and B settings, and the position of the "Morphing Slider", can be saved. Parameter Morphing Slider with Automation The Morphing Slider provides morphing between the parameter settings of slot A/B allowing for really creative and useful real-time tweaking. Enabling the Automation control button exposes the Morphing Slider to the host automation.
