Behringer Edison?

Just got one of these on loan to play around with...no manual
What exactly do these units do to audio?

I'm assuming it plays around with phase relationships?I'm guessing NO mono compatability???

Where have you found it most useful....on individual stereo tracks?
I was reading about Slippy using it on Efx returns...sounds interesting.

Just trying to get some feel for how to best experiment.
I am looking to get a little more width/spice to my mixes.

With a name like that they should make everything sound like it's been recorded on a wax cylinder heh

It's a 3D effects processors like Q-Sound, Spacializer, SRS etc. These units by default make things sound about as thin as a wax cylinder. Go figure.

Probably cool for effect but not on mixes.

I was reading somewhere that the best way to get depth into your recordings was.... wait for it.... to actually move the mic further away from the source (or vice versa)!

Nah, it's too crazy. It'd never work


heh

Actually, they are pretty useful to put on reverbs (thanks for the tip E-Cue). I've found that by spreading the reverb out or narrowing it, gives you a lot more control and the ability to let the reverb sit better in a mix. Particularly on snare.

Ok quit giving me ****

I know some folks use these things....even if though they are Behringer.

Thanks Mike I'll thought I read somewhere about using it on a effects return.

I wasn't referring to that brand sounding thin. Those devices fake surround mess with phase and make stuff get wimpy. Could be cool on reverb though. I've actually played with that before but I don't remember being real impressed. It seems to just confuse your ears as to where a sound is coming from rather than sound like it's coming from a specific place.

It's your brain that get's confused, your ears are probably fortunately filled with wax, like mine. Plug it in and play with it. I still use a Boss pitch****terdelay because I can turn the knobs and make it sit up and lie down. Same goes for an Ibanez envelope filter and a Boss Brown Box BBB. nothing quite sounds like these. MXR Flanger or Phaser. Set one of those on static all wet on a slap and see where you look. Phase is an overused term. It would have to be some type of multiband multitap delay like all the other spatial processors (Flangers and Phasers included)

I use mine on keys(pads,brass,strings,efx) and percussion.

I also tend to use it in bypass as a filter(naturally adds highs).

I would never use it on my overall mixes though.

If you want more width to your mixes, then probaby look elsewhere.
