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.
Processing Specifications Stereo Tool, as all Flux:: plug-ins, provide 64-bits internal floating point processing. Sampling rate up to 384 kHz DXD (Pyramix DSP based). Sampling rate up to 384 kHz for native (AU/RTAS/VST). Compatibility All major native formats are supported Windows - XP, Vista, 7 all in both 32 and 64 bits. VST (2.4) RTAS* Mac OS X (Intel) - 10.5, 10.6, 10.7 in 32 bits. VST (2.4) AU RTAS* *The RTAS version requires ProTools 8 or later.
Turning the central button to the sweet side decreases the transients amplitude. To the bitter side, the transients amplitude is magnified. BitterSweet also features a control for processing the signal. When the main position is selected, the process affects the stereo signal. If Center is selected, only the M signal of the internal MS matrix is processed. If stereo is selected, only the S signal from the MS matrix is processed. Three transient detection modes can be selected. Varying periods of integration for transients can be accessed. A Link function is available to compensate the output gain with respect to the transient processing setting. Like all Flux:: plug-ins, it features 64 bit floating point processing, up to 8 channels and up to 8 FS (384 KHz). Center and Stereo Modes are only available in stereo processing (2 channels). We hope you will enjoy this new toy and make your Mix Sweeter or Bitterer. BitterSweet II is only available in native version for AU, RTAS and VST. Neither Flux or iLok dongle, nor registration are required.
Signal Processing Features Output Gain, controlling the gain at the end of the processing. Bypass routes the incoming signal direct to the output for a true smooth transition between processed and clean signal. Three different transient processing modes: Main, using a regular stereo signal scheme for the processing. Center, processing the Mid channel only, very efficient for snare and kick drums. Stereo, processing the Side channel only, very efficient for panned rhythmic/transient instruments.

The Kjaerhus Gold and Mastering Series are well known for their excelent, well designed sound and mastering vst plugin device lines. The Kjaerhus Classic line of audio effects is probably the best that you will find for free. These nine units rival many of the better and much more expensive VST signal processing effects on the market.
The Classic series consists of:
1. Classic Auto Filter
2. Classic Chorus
3. Classic Compressor
4. Classic Delay
5. Classic EQ
6. Classic Flanger
7. Classic Master Limiter
8. Classic Phaser
9. Classic Reverb
These are all relatively basic and easy to use units with simple control setups and a small selection of presets. Simple compared to their big brothers in the Golde series, but they still render well and deliver that high quality Kjaerhus sound. They also cover all the basic effect devices that you will need for your mixdowns and home recording sessions.
