What sets CenterOne apart?

Better than mid-side processing

The Center Prominence algorithm at the heart of CenterOne analyses the exact phantom center to transparently adjust stereo audio. This approach avoids the phase shifts or panorama imbalance issues that arise when Mid-Side techniques fail to split the signal cleanly.

Adjust your phantom center

Change the level of center audio until the balance is just right, such as bringing prominence to lead vocals in a mix, or make room for the vocals in a guitar stem. You can leave the unique left and right signal untouched, and any changes you make to the phantom center doesn’t affect the timbre or quality of the sound.

Extract phantom center and side

CenterOne has Left-Center-Right audio outputs so you can process each independently. This gives a world of creative options on each part of your stereo audio, and transparent algorithms mean that the signals can be recombined to be bit identical to the original source.

CenterOne is perfect for widening a congested and mono synth pad. Also great for adding width to the drum ambiance that might be a bit too center channel heavy. CenterOne allowed me to get a clearer center channel in my mixes…
