G-Sonique has announced the release of Mid-Side Stereophonic Harmonic Generator/Vitalizer+, an effect plug-in for Windows.
Mid-Side: stereophonic harmonic generator/vitalizer+ is a stereo enhancer and processor with brand new technology for vitalizing, coloring, controlling, adjusting and widening stereo material (the side part of a signal) as well as adding 3D space, width and depth to the mixes. Mid-Side: SHG/V+ is a useful tool for mixing and mastering.
Mid-Side: SHG/V+ features
Mid (mono) level slider for attenuating or boosting the Mid (mono) part of the sound by up to twice the amount.
Side (stereo) level slider for attenuating or boosting the Side (stereo) part of the sound by up to 3 times more.
Side harmonic generator 2. – module that filters a defined frequency range of the side (stereo) signal within a certain bandwidth, by a frequency and bandwidth (Q) knob. Additionally you can generate higher harmonics of this band or add analogue color (by harmonics knob) and boost this frequency band of the side part of the signal.
Side harmonic generator 1. – similar module with an added additional time delay knob, by which you can delay selected and effected frequency bands of the side part of the signal by a few milliseconds (0-350ms) to add more ambiance, space and reverb effects.
Side signal module to set additional parameters of the side (stereo) extracted part of the signal such as : .
Original side signal mix level knob to set how much of the full frequency (20hz-20khz) signal of the extracted side (stereo) part of the sound will be mixed with the filtered side signals from the Side harmonic generators 1 and 2.
Side signal total delay knob for very transparent (almost inaudible) signal delay of SIDE (stereo) part of signal towards the MID (mono) part of signal to create a better ambiance, depth and stereoscopic atmosphere of the effected sound/channel.
Bypass for comparing your track with and without the effect.
Dry/Wet knob for precise setting how much of effect will be applied.
Preset manager with 15 precisely selected example presets for mix and mastering.
Mid-Side: SHG/V+ for Windows (VST) is available to purchase for 12.90 EUR for first 100 customers (regular price 24.90 EUR)

Longcat has released H3D, a 3D audio spatialization effect for Windows.
The H3D plugin allows you to 3D mix audio tracks from your digital audio software (Cubase, Nuendo, Live…) and to obtain incredible spatialization effects. Sounds then seem to come from every possible direction, using standard audio headphones.
H3D_3dView3D object-audio mixing – use the 3D interface to place and easily animate sounds.
Longcat Audio H3D technology – when listening on headphones, H3D allows panning sound in 3D all around the listener’s head.
Unique HRTF processing – H3D uses Longcat own processed HRTF filters in order to achieve the best spatialization effects.
H3D Presence – independently adjust H3D’s immersion effect using the Presence parameter.
Automation – fully automate parameters and 3D animation of audio tracks.
No tedious settings – Just insert H3D plugins and start moving sounds in 3D.
H3D for Windows (VST) is available to purchase for 99 EUR incl. VAT.
Longcat has released AudioStage, the first 3D audio authoring and mixing solution compatible with all major audio software.
AudioStage benefits from a full-3D user interface that shows a virtual sound scene and all its components: audio sources, listeners, rooms and trajectories.
The interface may be used with tactile screens or a mouse, and allows for a simple sound and space authoring.
The 3D scene allows to simultaneously obtain an infinity of mixes addressing a large number of formats. The editor and sound engineer may concentrate on the audio scene creation, without taking the final support into account, hence gaining productivity and creativity.
Input tracks: mono or multichannel.
Acoustic environment: complete with connected rooms, physical simulation of openings, walls, and reverb.
Authoring: infinite number of scenes, tracks, and environments in one single project.
Automation: full parameter automation and animation of audio objects.
3D object-based mixing: simultaneously mix in stereo, surround, or any full-3D format up to 64 channels.
Spatialization: comprehensive techniques (including stereo, binaural, stereo3D, surround, Ambisonics, and VBAP) applied individually to audio sources in each mix.
Commercial editions: AudioStage Stereo, Surround, and Unlimited.
Free LITE edition available for your first 3D mixes.
AudioStage is available to purchase for Windows and Mac, starting at 990 EUR (introductory price for the Stereo edition). A free AudioStage LITE edition is available to download from the Longcat Audio website.
