Avenson Audio Mid-Side Stereo Processor

The Avenson Audio Mid-Side Stereo Processor takes your stereo Left-Right signal and converts it via a sum and difference matrix to allow you to process the Mid and Side signals separately.

Then a second matrix converts it back to Left and Right as well as giving you a width control and a sallen-key 12db/octave high pass filter for the Side signal.

All the Input and Outputs are balanced on 0.25" TRS connectors. The MS outs normal to the MS inputs to allow you to use just the width and Side High Pass filter.

Housed in an attractive half rack width enclosure with an optional stainless steel rack shelf, the MidSide is ready to add more processing power to your racks.

Both the Avenson Audio Mid-Side and the Avenson Audio Blend are designed to be transparent tools to compliment your analog outboard gear. Short, clean signal paths keep the signals true to the source while expanding the versatility in processing.

What We Think

"I discovered the power of processing my mixes via Mid-Side few years ago. This method really allows you to focus on specific 'lanes' of the music in ways that even processing individual elements before the L/R can't allow. This range of control why most truly professional mastering engineers will end up working in M/S. While there are a few M/S processors available from software makers (and they are pretty good), there is something truly special and real about converting from L/R to M/S in the analog domain.

Brad Avenson makes some of my favorite and best sounding tools for the studio. His commitment to making extremely high quality and proven gear that doesn't cost loads and loads of money has earned him tons of respect in the world of pro-audio. I'm thrilled that Brad has taken on the world of M/S with the Avenson Audio Mid-Side and can't wait for others to find out what this piece can do for their work."

Great sound! September 4, 2014
Reviewer: Marcelo Navia from La Paz, Bolivia  
Sound very clean, does what it needs to do. However, it lacks neatness of finish and presentation. I would like to have a monitoring option for the Mid and Side separately.
