By harnessing the peak information from your stereo channels and delicately modulating the side channel, Mono Pusher introduces a new dimension to your mono sound. Experience the best of both worlds – the focused clarity of mono, infused with the stereo dynamics that make your sound truly exceptional.

Mono Pusher's intuitive controls allow you to fine-tune the attack and recovery settings, shaping the way your audio gracefully transitions to mono. Perfect for ensuring your mono-compatible mixes are still bursting with life, this plugin lets you sculpt the mono field while preserving the essence of your original sound. Whether you're working on music production, podcasts, or any audio project that demands powerful mono representation, Mono Pusher empowers you to craft mono audio that stands out, making every moment resonate with impact.

Transform your sound into a mono experience that's anything but ordinary. Elevate your audio projects and rediscover the art of impactful mono sound."


How to use Mono Pusher?

Use the Attack and Recover knobs to change how the peak detection system reacts to the incoming peaks.

At the bottom you can change the ‘Peak Handling’ mode from Stereo to Mono. This will change the way the plugin works with your source. Mono uses the sum of Left and Right and will be sent to the detection system. Stereo mode divides the detection system and handling into 2 separate instances and works with the Left and Right channels separately.

With the BandPass filter you can alter the signal Mono Pusher uses to detect the peaks. It adds a level of customization to how the peak detection system responds to different aspects of the audio signal. This could give producers and audio engineers the flexibility to shape the character of the stereo field according to their preferences.

Retain Punch

At CARP Audio, we understand that maintaining the punch and energy of your sound is essential. Our plugins employ algorithms that intelligently and dynamically dose the processing, ensuring that the core transients and dynamics remain intact.

So by carefully analyzing the audio signal, our plugin identifies and safeguards the crucial punch elements that give your sound its character. This means you can process your audio without sacrificing its inherent impact. To an extend ofcourse, you can always overdo it.

Peak Data Modulation

Amplitude modulation involves altering the volume (amplitude) of a signal over time. In our Pusher Plugins, we take this concept further by modulating the amplitude of the mid or side channel using peak data extracted from the stereo channels. In “Stereo Pusher” for example, we use this technique to make use of already existing stereo data to modulate te Mid information to create even more space. It combines the two distinct worlds of Mid/Side and Stereo/Mono and opens doors to new dimensions of audio creativity.

Push Delay

Unlike conventional stereo enhancers that delay the entire audio signal of a channel, our approach is revolutionary. Within "Stereo Pusher" you can use our 'Push Delay' feature which delays the amplitude modulation of the selected L/R channel coming out of the mid encoder, not the audio samples themselves. This distinction not only sounds magical, it also ensures that your audio remains phase-coherent when played back in mono, sidestepping the phasing problems commonly associated with stereo enhancing. Our sidechain reverb tool "Reeferb" also features this knob which delays the pushing from 'Dry' to 'Wet' (Reverb) on one side creating stereoized handling.

Oversampling

Our plugins are equipped with a wide range of different oversampling filters to fit your sound and cpu usage. Anti aliasing plays a huge role in getting the best out of the peak detection system. It guarrantees precise behaviour and a crystal clear sound.

Whether you're crafting music, sculpting soundscapes, or fine-tuning audio for any purpose, our plugin's sophisticated anti-aliasing capabilities ensure your sonic creations maintain their authenticity and excellence.

CPU Friendly

Our plugins are your CPU's best mates. Efficiency meets excellence with our plugins. Our technology not only ensures that your creative workflow remains fast, but also smooth and uninterrupted. Even our graphics are optimized for minimal GPU calculations, freeing up your system resources for what truly matters – Experience peak performance without compromise.
