Avenson Audio Blend & Mid-Side Stereo Processing Package

The Avenson Audio Blend & Mid-Side Stereo Processing Package includes the Blend, Mid-Side and the rack shelf. Access your stereo signals and process them with your hardware compressors and equalizers like never before. One convenient package at one convenient price from Front End Audio!

Front End Audio presents the Avenson Audio Blend & Mid-Side Stereo Processing Package. This package solves the needs of many working studios and engineers who lack a suitable means to process stereo signals via a Mid-Side encoding and decoding matrix or a Parallel Processing blend tool.

Parallel Compression has been a long standing "trick" for bringing up the energy of a bus while not robbing the signal of dynamics. The most popular of these is the "New York Drum Trick" where the drum bus was multed in the patchbay, sent to a pair of compressors (or stereo compressor), and then returned to another pair of channels, blending the balance against the uncompressed signal. Now, in the age of Pro Tools and the DAW we don't usually have large format mixing consoles around to help with this process. Therefore, Brad Avenson saw the need for this tool which handles the send of the duplicated signal, return of the processed signal, and blending of the unprocessed and processed signals together, all in one box: the Avenson Audio Blend Parallel Processing Tool.

Mid-Side processing takes the basic Left / Right stereo signals and converts to a Mid-Side situation where the Center can be processed differently than the sides. This is a very common - if not required - practice in mastering. But it is also a great mix tool for solidifying a drum bus, and more. But the trouble arises when you need to find a Mid-Side Matrix which doesn't require the outlay of some serious cheese and force you to buy a mastering console. Again - Brad Avenson saw the need for such a tool and has delivered the Avenson Audio Mid-Side Stereo Processor.

Front End Audio recognizes the need for working studios to have access to these tools of the trade, knowing that most need both! Therefore, we created this handy-dandy bundle, which includes the Avenson Audio Blend Parallel Processing Tool, Avenson Audio Mid-Side Stereo Processor, as well as the Blend/Mid-Side Rack Shelf tossed into the mix for good measure. Chances are, you're going to need it. All you'll need to make this sucker fly is proper cabling and a patch-bay. We can help with both! Granted, you can make these work without a patchbay... but your life will be a heck of a lot easier if you're dealing with hardware - regardless of whether you're integrating these Avenson Audio devices. Add those to the bundle and we'll sweeten the deal.

Avenson Audio Blend & Mid-Side Stereo Processing Package Features

  • Avenson Audio Blend Parallel Processing Tool
    • Allows you to use compressors, equalizers, distortion, or other effects in a parallel fashion with the original "clean" signal you give it AND the ability to blend between the two to taste.
    • 100mm Fader
    • Polarity Reverse on B-Input
    • Inputs: 2 x Balanced 1/4" TRS connectors each for A and B inputs

  • Avenson Audio Mid-Side Stereo Processor
    • Allows you to access a Center Mid channel independently of the Side channel(s) derived from standard Left and Right Channels. Equalize and compress the Mid differently than the Side channel for better clarity and impact.
    • Width adjustment changes the balance of Mid to Side volumes against one another
    • Side High Pass filter (18Hz - 300Hz) and switch allow you to trim the ultra-low frequency content from the Side channel, thereby strengthening the impact of the Mid channel for a strong center image.
    • Inputs: 2 x Balanced 1/4" TRS connectors each for A and B inputs
    • Outputs: 2 x Balanced 1/4" TRS connectors each for A and B outputs
