Oblivion Sound Lab has announced the release of its new audio plugin OSL Side Effects, a versatile Mid/Side processing plugin that lets you alter the stereo field in both subtle and creative ways.

It separates a stereo signal into Mid and Side channels which can be independently equalised, compressed, saturated, boosted, attenuated and panned using an intuitive processing chain. This makes it possible to alter the the width of a mix in ways that would be impossible using conventional stereo processing techniques.

  • FFT Spectrum Analyzer.
  • Mid/Side compressor with transfer curve graph.
  • Gain reduction meters.
  • Tape-style saturation.

  • Mid/Side and Left/Right output meters.
  • Oversampling up to 16x.
  • Preset system including 17 factory presets.
