A new plug-in is now available for testing. It is a phase alignment plug-in. http://www.voxengo.com/downloads/
PHA-979 is a special PC VST plug-in which allows you to apply an arbitrary phase shift to the program material. What is meant by the phase shift here is a simultaneous shifting of all frequencies across the active frequency range of the signal by the given phase shift value. This process does not harm the phase relations within the signal being processed. For example, you can shift the phase of the signal by 90 degrees and then shift its phase by 180+90 degrees to get the original signal as a result. This is achieved by using a linear-phase design.
PHA-979 can be very useful during mixing sessions, especially when working with the program material recorded through the microphone. In many cases this allows one to solve various phasing problems arising from the microphone placement chosen during tracking session. In other cases this process may help to align drums to each other and to align the bass to drums and vice versa bringing punch and time coherence not attainable by the time aligning alone.
PHA-979 is a high CPU-consuming plug-in with a high processing delay (latency). That is why this plug-in is best used with audio host applications which offer a freeze-like function along with a plug-in delay compensation.
Voxengo PHA-979 features:
* Arbitrary phase adjustments
* Phase control for each channel
* Two quality modes
* Linear-phase design
* "A-to-B" comparisons
* Mono-to-Stereo, Stereo-to-Stereo processing
* Sample rates up to 96 kHz supported
* Native assembler DSP code
Any projected release date on this? I have a project that will need mixing in a few weeks and I'm itching to use this!
This plug is a really great idea.
I have the IBP phase tool from little labs for tracking but i still find myself playing with tracks at a sample level in the DAW.
Thanks so much for this.
