2 Channel Tools

A general toolkit for monitoring and adjusting 2-channel signals

CEDAR Cambridge 2 Channel Tools

The 2 Channel Tools provide a toolkit for monitoring and manipulating stereo signals within CEDAR Cambridge. You can apply the meters and tools to any two channels from the eight provided by the system. The graphic display provides a Lissajous figure plus a balance meter with a range of 30dB in either direction that allows you to specify the gain differential between the two channels. Alternatively, you can invoke Auto Balance, which maintains the balance of the channels such that the output signal remains centred.

Output Modes with MS Encode and decode

There are four output modes: Normal, MS, Mono sum, Mono difference. MS creates an M-S pair with output channel A carrying the A+B signal, and output channel B carrying the A-B signal. You can invoke two instances of the tools with processing modules lying between them to generate a wide range of MS effects such as stereo width enhancement.
