Boz Digital Labs has announced the release of an update to its plugin that sums low frequencies to mono so that no matter how far you pan your instruments, they will sound equally natural on both headphones and speakers.

The new and improved Mongoose 2 mid-side processor aims to give you the space and separation in your mixes that you’ve been looking for.

Keep in mind that our job as mixers is essentially the same as that of a magician: to create a satisfying illusion in the mind of the audience. So while left and right is all we have in stereo, mono bass summing focuses the center image while creating the illusion of greater space in the stereo field, which in turn simplifies the mixing process. Mongoose makes it easy to achieve a focused and punchy center image with as much width on the sides as you like.

Mongoose 2 features

  • Sums low-frequencies to mono with adjustable crossover.
  • Very low CPU impact.
  • Focus and tighten low end while ensuring mix translation.
  • Create contrast with high-frequency widening.
  • Sculpt the width and depth of a mix.
  • No phase issues when summing to mono.

Mongoose 2 for Windows and Mac (VST/VST3, AU and AAX) is on sale for the introduction price of $19 USD until April 30th, 2022 (regular $49 USD). You can purchase it at an additional 10% discount for the first week only.

The update is free to owners of the original Mongoose plugin.
