About this product
Numerical Sound ReStereo brings options that could previously only be
achieved at the recording stage to the mixing stage for the first
time. It does not sound like a stereo plug-in: it sounds like a new
stereo recording. But the design goes beyond by making the process
fool-proof. With live stereo-miking engineers have to carefully
control phase and pick-up patterns, using specific microphones and
making sure to record in only the best acoustic spaces. With ReStereo,
there are no phase or frequency artifacts on any sound you apply it
to: you can use it on every track in a mix with great result.
ReStereo differs from stereo FX, because it does not sound like an
effect at all. It just sounds like a better recording. The sound has a
clearer sense of space, immediacy and realism that is fundamentally
different from what a mono recording can provide alone. That’s because
ReStereo mimics the way we really hear things: in real-life, the
difference between what each of our ears hears places sounds in the
world around us. Without that information, we sub-consciously
recognize sound as artificial.
The ReStereo approach preserves transients and clarity, so you don’t
get the smearing and wash that results from using too much reverb to
place a mono sound in the stereo field. It also avoids the
“recognizable effect” hurdle that so many other stereo effects (such
as modulation effects like chorus, flanger or phaser or band-splitting
plug-ins) that can make a recording sound artificial. The realism of
the ReStereo sound means that it can be used in any genre.
ReStereo’s easy design means you can quickly try it on any sound. Want
to emulate the stereo vocal approach of multi-Platinum recordings like
Michael Jackson’s Thriller? Just throw ReStereo onto the mono vocal
track. Want to try giving that bass a sense of space? Hear it in
seconds with ReStereo.
