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.
THE INSTANT STEREO FIX
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.
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.
GOOD-BYE 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.
FLEXIBLE AND YET SO EASY TO USE
RECENTER is an incredibly useful tool, a little helper you don’t want to miss once you’ve worked with it. It is very easy to set up and provides immediate clean stereo signals.
RECENTER analyzes and processes your signal in real-time.
KEEP STEREO WIDTH
Achieve a balanced sound without resorting to mono or a compromised stereo image.
NO CORRECTIVE PANNING NEEDED
RECENTER takes care of angle adjustment on the fly; no need to get your hands dirty with reparative pan automation.
SAVE PRECIOUS TIME
RECENTER is designed for maximum effectiveness when merely being applied as an insert effect.
A few simple, accessible, yet powerful controls take care of the rest.
M/S INPUT DECODING
RECENTER can process common L/R as well as Mid-Side recordings.
For more complex signals, RECENTER can process four frequency bands individually to achieve a more precise output.
“BOOM Library is manifesting with Enforcer a new generation plugin to push those subs, make sound effects bigger, create something new and in your face or create low-end sub sound shaking the audience.”
WHAT THE PROS SAY
“BOOM Library ‘s RECENTER is one of the best purchases I made this year. A must-have for field recordists and sound designers. I got it 2 weeks ago. Been using it on a daily basis ever since. It actually does more than what it says on the tin. Mono freq filter + M/S decoding are huge timesavers”
Phil Michalski | Sound Designer • Recordist • Editor
“It worked great on my M/S shotgun dialog track. It panned the dialog that was to the left or right to the center without killing the stereo field. Their customer support was responsive over email. I will be purchasing this excellent plug-in!”
