Mono compatibility remains a very important part of music
production, because music is often played back in mono or with
a poorly reproduced stereo. For example, think about loudspeakers
in shops and workplaces, and those built into laptops, smartphones
and many radios. More people are listening to music in these ways
than ever before, and a professional audio production is expected
to shine everywhere it is being played.
The Hbasm Stereoizer aims to help musicians and sound-engineers
deal with this challenge. It adds a pleasant fullness and stereo-width
to almost any incoming sound, regardless of whether that sound already
contains stereo information or not. At the same time, the effect is
completely cancelled out when the left and right audio channels are
summed to mono, thus, it is mono-compatible in a traditional sense.
Depending on your settings, the Stereoizer will introduce noticable
flanging effects when only one audio channel can be heard (either the
left or right channel). This may be desired or not, so I advise you to
always check how your production holds up under these circumstances.
