Nugen Audio STEREOIZER

Shares Our Verdict A terriic new interface and an even better sound make Stereoizer 3 perfect for enhancing mono or stereo sound sources. Pros Two enhancement processes. Great interface. Useful analysis display.

Dynamic modulation for creative effects. Helpful auto-gain feature. Output balance and metering. Cons Nothing major. A glance at Stereoizer 3 reveals that NuGen Audio has been very busy. The company has basically rewritten the entire plug-in, taking its stereoisin’ game to the next level.

The aim is the same, however: Stereoizer 3’s interface relates closely to the audio. An arc-shaped display represents both the stereo width and frequency ranges of the plug-in’s two main processes. Shining through this is an analyser that indicates frequency content and deviation from the stereo centre.

The first, inter-aural intensity difference, concerns relative level differences between left and right channels – when a sound is louder in one channel than the other, it seems to come more from that direction.

So in simple terms, IID creates a stereo effect by applying frequency-dependent panning. On the arc display, the IID width is set by moving a ‘radius’ line from centre to left, and there’s a line that moves the other way for ITD width.

Moreover, both effects have shiftable upper and lower frequency boundaries. Stereoizer 3 has some funky additional features to play with. From a sonic perspective, IID’s Focus option has quite an impact. High settings give smoother and more usable results. In use While it may sound a bit scientific, Stereoizer 3 is easy to get to grips with and the option to bypass IID and ITD means you’ll soon grasp their ‘sound’. We tried Stereoizer 3 on a range of mono and stereo sources, including synth bass, drum loops, live drums, piano, acoustic guitar, synth pads and vocals.

The results were great, and definitely better than with v2. Also, the analysis display offers useful feedback on the dynamic nature of the effected stereo signal. The option to restrict the range of affected frequencies is very powerful, enabling tricks such as widening only the treble content of signal. And for more aggressive band-pass-style processing, there’s IID’s Focus option. Unlike most stereo enhancers we’ve tried, the sound doesn’t become either phasey or grainy, but remains smooth and rich.

NuGen’s approach minimises these issues, giving you two distinct types of very usable enhancement. Overall, we’re enormously impressed with the new interface and sound of Stereoizer 3 Listen to our Stereoizer 3 audio demo to hear: Mono synth bass. Taking a simple sound, first using the IID option to gradually add width. Bypass to compare. Increasing the lower frequency limit, then lowering the higher limit. Using the focus controls to highlight a small area.

Next using the ITD option to gradually increase width, bypass to compare. Acoustic guitar. Using the IID option to add rich width, removing very low frequencies. Moving the incremental resolution fader to demonstrate difference. Adding the ITD option to make things wider still. Moving the incremental acuity fader to demonstrate effect.
