Over the years DontCrack has always been looking for plug-ins that are really special. Ones that can be that extra factor in getting your work to sound even better. Last year we found DrMS from Matthew Lane and it has proved itself to be one of the best tools we offer on the store.
For a while now we have been into exploring M/S or Middle/Side in mixing and mastering our own work. Why? Because it has been the ‘secret weapon’ of Mastering Engineers for many years. It you have ever wondered how they get that very tight and centered low end and at the same time an extremely wide and deep soundstage in their work, well, it is Middle/Side doing the magic.
Matthew Lane is a Mastering Engineer and he developed this M/S plug-in to help him do an outstanding job. It is unique in its concept of providing ‘Focus’ and ‘Field to allow you to go deep into bringing out aspects of your mix that you could not have known existed.
But this is all just words. Take a look at this video from ProTools expert and LISTEN to what happens to the mix. We think you will be astonished to hear what changes take place. You will hear how DrMS can give you the magic those Mastering engineers have been working with for years.
If that is not enough to convince you there is also Mr. Dave Pensado who will show how he uses DrMS to get his mixes sounding WIDE.
If the DrMS seems a bit complicated, Matthew Lane has made StereoDelta which is ultra-simple and provides a very powerful tool for adding width to your mixes.
