MIA Laboratories and Plugivery Distribution have announced the availability of MIA Lab's 358 Enhancer plug-in in AAX / AU / VST2 / VST3 format, Windows and macOS. This is how they describe it...
The 358 Enhancer is a single-stage, 'straight-path' process allowing control of the bass/treble frequency balance of a stereo mix or mono channel.
It can be used in many applications requiring from slight to more drastic frequency balance correction, but unlike a conventional EQ or filter, the 358 uses internal multi-band phase processing.
This results in a more dynamic, realistic frequency content which is adjustable with two main controls for constructive (boost) process, folding at the classic 150Hz (LF) and 2.4KHz (HF) frequencies.
The internal process includes a detection stage based on the analog envelope detector circuit, first introduced in MIA's 925 Compressor.
In addition, the 'Phase-Compensation' mode (PHASE COMP. button) applies a fixed process to the whole bandwidth of the program material, for stereo image enhancement on two-channel mix or mix-buss applications. This 'phase-deviation' process has been developed carefully as a one-way stereo signal conditioning and enhancement, especially for sounds which are 'panned', or containing instrument-position information.
The 358 Enhancer features a single-stage, ‘straight-path’ process, allowing control of the bass/treble frequency balance of a stereo mix or mono channel, with :
- An internal multi-band phase processing algorithm for more dynamic, realistic frequency content.
- A detection stage based on the analog envelope detector circuit.
- A 'Phase-Compensation' mode, for stereo image enhancement.
