stage utilizes sophisticated spatial processing techniques to take a good mix or master and make it better. By using sophisticated stereo panning, delay lines, and phase modulation, stage smoothly serves up what would otherwise require routing schemes of a confusingly complex nature and multiple plugins to achieve. As such, stage waves goodbye to copying tracks and setting up the Haas effect delay — when a sound is followed by another sound separated by a sufficiently short time delay (below the listener’s echo threshold), the listener perceives a single fused auditory image with a perceived spatial location dominated by the location of the first-arriving sound while the lagging sound also affects the perceived location (though its effect is suppressed by the first-arriving sound) — or panning stereo tracks within a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) while using another plugin to control stereo width. By bringing these tried and tested techniques under one virtual roof, stage enables efficient stereo workflow with maximum flexibility and accuracy… all of which yield greater perceived width with new levels of musical clarity.
See and hear Plugin Alliance’s stunning stage trailer here:
* IN (input) section with stereo corrective tools like MS blend and L/R tilt.
* PANORAMA section with two sophisticated algorithms that place both mono and stereo sources precisely within the stereo panorama (pan) while adjusting for width.
* AMBIENCE section for subtle stereo width enhancement, additional perceived depth, size and texture, tone coloration, or creative LFO frequency modulation effects.
* Dedicated wet and dry bypass functions for accurate monitoring of added effect.
* OUT (output) section optimized for mastering workflows.
