Austrian Audio has announced a free plugin designed to complement the dual output capability of the OC818 large-diaphragm condenser microphone with multiple polar patterns.
The StereoCreator can be used either with one dual output OC818 for so-called “pseudo stereo”, or two microphones on top of each other to get a true stereo recording.
You can manipulate stereo recordings by switching between the three stereo recording types “X/Y stereo”, “M/S stereo”, and “Blumlein stereo” and change the stereo image to your desired taste. Depending on the type of setting, various options are available. To be able to compare different results with each other, the “calculate” function brings the signals to the same level.
Austrian Audio sets itself apart from other microphone manufacturers by continuously pushing technological boundaries and providing microphone users with a complete recording system.
This philosophy led to the development of the PolarPilot smartphone app, the plugins AmbiCreator and PolarDesigner, and now the StereoCreator. When used with the OC818s dual outputs, this new plugin opens unprecedented new possibilities in post production.
- Stereo recording with one OC818.
- 3 different stereo techniques (XY/MS/Blumlein) in post production with fantastic post-processing possibilities.
- Adjust spatiality in post processing.
- Change stereo width in post processing.
- Rotate the stereo field in post processing.
The plugin is free to download at Austrian Audio.
