MS-editing in the mastering process

MS-editing in the mastering process

The same way you can split a stereo signal into a left and right signal, you can split it into a middle and side signal. The middle signal is the sum of left and right. The side signal is the difference of left and right.

When we split the signal this way we have other possibilities to edit when mastering. We can edit individual instruments in the stereo panorama, and it is possible to edit the middle signal and side separately. This is useful for editing the hihat or a doubled (left/right) guitar.


M= mid signal
S= side signal
L= left channel
R= right channel
