BOOM Library ReCenter
Stereo Centering Plugin
The Instant Stereo Fix
ReCenter automatically repairs off-center stereo recordings while keeping the original stereo width which makes it an invaluable time-saver and a perfect tool for professional post-production. Fix off-centered stereo field recordings, dynamically center vocal artists or musicians that moved around the stage or center hard directional effects like drive-bys and stereo whooshes. ReCenter makes tedious panning automation obsolete so you can focus on your creative flow.
What Is ReCenter?
ReCenter is a stereo processor that constantly analyses an incoming stereo signal and dynamically rotates it to the center or a given angle without altering the stereo width. Having the incoming signal centered, you can narrow or widen the stereo image within ReCenter. For a better low-frequency control you can mono the original signal below a set frequency. A multiband processing option intelligently shifts more complicated signals.
- Fix off-center stereo recordings
- Compare original and processed signal
- Automatic M/S decoding and multi-band processing available
- Adjust the resulting angle and stereo width
This Is how Recenter Will Ease Your Pain
Dynamically Correct Stereo Images
Have you ever worked with stereo material that was not centered correctly? Pointing a stereo microphone a hundred percent accurately onto a sound source gets harder the further away the source is. As a result, you get a recording with a constantly shifting center that would require you to manually adjust and automate the panning over the whole recording. ReCenter continuously analyzes the directionality of a stereo or M/S signal and rotates it to a given target angle in real-time – without narrowing the stereo image.
Goodbye Corrective Panning
Correct poorly aimed or moving stereo recordings while skipping the time-consuming and most often ineffective pan automation process. All you need to do is tell ReCenter how hard, fast and precisely it should adjust your signal.
This will drastically improve your workflow and save you hours of manual and tedious panning as well as constantly checking your stereo signal. With ReCenter, you have one thing less to worry about and you can focus all your energies on your creative work.
