Center Prominence

Feel like the vocal is just a tiny bit too loud, but don't want to change any of the stereo spread. CenterOne allows you to bring the phantom center of a stereo signal forward or backward without changing any of the panned signals.

Extract Center channel from a stereo source

CenterOne also gives you LCR plugin outputs so you can decide to put an effect on just the center extracted channel. Mixing LCR back together gives you a bit-identical copy of the original signal.

No MS-technique

CenterOne's "Center Prominence" algorithm analyses the precise location of the sound sources in the stereo signal for a careful processing of each bit of your audio, respectful of the original location of the sources. The alternative MS-technique that attempts to change the level of the M part of the signal, fails to achieve a good performance due to the inherent drawback of the lateral sources leaking into the M part of the signal split.

I just worked a miracle with the new Leapwing Audio CenterOne plugin. Seems clients are always sending me the challenging projects! I received a ragtime piano mix that was much too close miked, and the mikes were far from the ideal spot. My goal was to create a big picture of a Hamburg Steinway in a perfect hall, from audience perspective. But the stereo separation was so-so. There was a somewhat ambiguous stereo image, clearly indicating the mikes were located too close to where the strings cross over the harp. The right hand was somewhat located left ish where it should be, but the bass of the piano was building up strongly in the center of the stereo picture, and ambiguously amorphous on the right. The first thing I did was insert CenterOne and start taking out the center build up from 20 Hz to about 300 Hz. This worked miracles — it immediately sweetened up the instrument and enhanced the stereo picture without losing the middle notes of the piano. With the addition of other mastering processes, the result became a very beautiful picture of a big grand piano as heard from Row F or G in a beautiful hall.

I could never have achieved these good results with MS processing, even with eq'ed MS processing. With MS, dipping M channel, even just the bass frequencies of the M channel, tends to produce a somewhat phasey image. You've all muted the M channel of an MS processor and observed an out-of-phase sound in left and right speakers. But that is not the case with CenterOne... you reduce (or even mute) the center channel and still hear a stereo picture. With Center one, there isn't any phasiness when dipping the center.... and the stereo image doesn't clump together when raising the center. CenterOne is like having a handle on the center instrument after a stereo recording has been made! Kudos to Leapwing! This is a very nice product. From this moment on I'll try CenterOne any time I need to change mid or side level. It's likely this new plugin will achieve what we all wanted all along.... effectively alter the center channel level with no artifacts and natural sounding results.

Finally there now is the Primal Tool to add or subtract center information in a stereo signal.

Being in a mix situation where delivered stems don't match the new balance, recordings where you want to change the feel of the overheads or in mastering, where you just want to reach for that vocal.

CenterOne does it ALL without artefacts or phase incoherency! Absolutely stunning! It has become my tool for dealing with anything that needs change in the 'center'
