True Mid/Side Channel Extractor - Extract and control the Left, Center and Right channels of a stereo mix completely independently

True Mid/Side extracts the true phantom center and true STEREO side signals from a stereo mix. What do we mean by “True” Mid/Side? Traditional “Mid/Side” processing is often a misnomer for what is technically “sum and difference” processing. In this traditional approach the “Mid” output is simply the mono sum of left and right (L+R) while the “side” output is the mono difference of left and right (L-R). Any signals panned hard left or hard right - which are actually pure “side” signals - will appear in both the Mid and Side outputs. Meanwhile, the “Side” output is a mono mix containing both the left and right sides. This is not how we hear stereo!“True Mid/Side” actually separates the phantom center (what we hear in the middle of a stereo mix) from the stereo side signals. The stereo Side signals are separated to their respective Left and Right sides. All three resultant signals (Left-Center-Right) can be controlled independently. Signals panned to the center of the stereo mix (the “Phantom Center”) emerge ONLY in the Middle/Center output while signals hard-panned Left/Right in the stereo mix emerge ONLY in the Side outputs (and on the same side they appear in the stereo mix). True Mid/Side can be used to extract and render Middle/Center and Side stems from a stereo track or bus and can also be used in effects inserts and sends in your DAW during mixing and mastering for the ultimate stereo field FX and control.
