de la Mancha releases thr33some
de la Mancha has released thr33some, a multi-band stereo tool, to allow you to widen or narrow specific frequencies in your mix.
Typical use would be to make bass sounds mono whilst progressively spreading higher frequencies, but abuse and experimentation will yield some interesting effects too. Thr33some has 2 methods of stereo spread and with gain and pan per band you have total control over all 3 bands. You can also make each band full spectrum to get 3 full layers and control in and out gain with metering to keep levels under control. There is also a multi-out version for individual processing of each band in your DAW.
- 3 band stereo widener/narrower.
- Split bands into 3 frequency ranges, or choose 3 full spectrum layers.
- Zero phasing band splits using inversion rather than crossover.
- Mid/Side processing per band.
- Delay based width control per band.
- Stereo balance and gain per band.
- Stereo out and multi-out (3x stereo) versions.
- In and out gain controls.
- Metering for in and out levels to allow balancing.
- All control parameters named and mapped to midi CC.
- Presets covering all functions and many configurations.
thr33some is available as a VST effect plug-in for Windows PC for $15 USD. A demo version can be downloaded here.
SPECIAL OFFER: Free copy of pitchfork (worth $15) if you buy thr33some during the month of May 2009. When you purchase thr33some, pitchfork will be included in the download.
