Brainworx has announced the release of bx_shredspread, a new M/S stereo width and tone control plug-in for Windows and Mac OS X in VST, AU and RTAS effect plug-in formats.
Brainworx has also announced that native demo versions of all its plug-ins can now be tested without an iLok dongle: All Native demo versions of the Brainworx plug-ins will run for 14 days - without any dongle - and without limitations.
bx_shredspread is a stereo processor to be used on any stereo guitar subgroup or stereo guitar channels. Its main purpose is to make sure your stereo ("doubled") guitar signals sound "wide and phatt".
Stereo-guitars that have been created by recording several mono tracks (aka "doubled" guitars) will benefit best from the auto-correcting features and the "SHRED-filter", but bx_shredspread will work on conventional stereo guitar sounds and stereo samples as well, the company says.
Although mainly created for guitars bx_shredspread may also be used on keyboard groups, organs, choirs, etc. according to Brainworx.
bx_shredspread is a tool to control panning, stereo width and the "tone" of your stereo guitar tracks / groups. It is designed to avoid typical phase problems that can occur when using M/S technology via algorithms for stereo width, EQ and pan.
It costs €119 but can be purchased for €89 until the end of September, 2010. If you own any other Brainworx plug-in it can be yours for just €59.
