Software Description

Based on Blue Cat's Liny EQ technology, Blue Cat's Widening Liny EQ is a 9 bands linear phase Mid/Side equalizer. Thanks to Blue Cat's unique widening technology, you can manage equalization of Middle / Side parts of the stereo signal separately. And best of all, you can choose the virtual center of the signal: it lets you control where you want the equalization to take place in the stereo field.

This is the ultimate solution to widen your stereo image with precision, without adding phase artefacts to your signal: you can choose to enhance treble on the sides and bass on the middle to strengthen an original stereo recording, or completely modify the way your instrument is positioned in the mix, choosing to set the virtual middle 30% percent on the left and modify its spectrum accurately. The effect also works on mono signal since you can modify the perception of the stereo image by choosing the virtual center position.

Everything is possible, with minimal latency! The full automation support provided by this plugin offers a zipper-free real-time and continuous change of parameters. If you whish to use this plug-in as a simple equalizer, you can choose to link mid/side faders and get the same result as the standard Liny EQ. If you want a Left / Right equalizer, just set the center as Right and 'Mid' will become left and 'Side' Right.
