Mid/side processing is a technique used to place audio frequencies into familiar areas of the stereo field, with low-end bass occupying the mid (middle or centre) and higher frequencies being sent to the side of the mix. The Mid Side (LRMSMSLR) Eurorack module is a modular device to not only split stereo signals into mid/side but also back to stereo, for a sound more in tune to human hearing.
The LRMSMSLR Eurorack module is simple in it’s design, eliminating the need for precise stereo mixing of frequency bands when mixing. Mid/Side is a technique developed in 1934, which actually precedes the ability to make and playback stereo recordings – with the aim to enhance the acoustic `space’ of a recording. Find out more about the technique here and find out some of it’s creative uses here. The LRMSMSLR will mix audio signals and has DC coupled inputs and outputs – so is also suitable for mixing control voltages in interesting ways.
The module uses professional quality amplifiers with low noise levels to process the signal clearly, with minimal colouring of the original sounds. You’ll find documentation and a datasheet on the sellers website for happy mid/side mixing!
