Excellent, thanks. I thought it was a de facto requirement when mastering for vinyl. This Album is not Techno, D&B etc.... So there's no stereo bass or any obvious phase issue when mono'ed so I will leave it as it is.


Cheers

when i was taught to cut the ee was required to be in at all times but with different x points settings for different speeds, of course i rebelled against this idea and cut without when ever i could.
however in a "factory"situation (10-20 sides a day)
the norm was to leave it in always.

whats the norm nowadays...?
i dunno.... download the music for free? and just Talk about the vinyl:<)

I use it more than I don't. If I prep the master I often don't. If I'm cutting a master from elsewhere and I'm not cutting refs I use it. I've never had a complaint about a narrower image. A skip though...

My experience was entirely with the cutting engineer prepping the master. Sterling Sound and the Mastering Lab picked up a lot of clients by not high passing and EEing absolutely everything the way many of the major label cutting rooms did.

Hi,

So, what is the best quality RTAS plugin that would do this well?
It seems that most recommendations are for VSTs...

You're welcome to try out my DrMS plugin, it's a native RTAS plugin now.

Simply engage the HPF in the Side section and there is your ellipitcal filter to mono the bass. The most natural slope here is 6dB/oct, tho you can choose a higher slope of 12dB/oct if needed. This HPF is linear phase in DrMS, so it will not color the sound of the full stereo signal.

Aha!

Thanks for the tip!
I do remember checking on your site some time ago, and RTAS was not available.
When did that happen?
It looks like the one to have...

I see. I think that's exactly what happened.
Will have to run the demo and see how the plugin performs on my system.
Thanks again.

You could do this in a Metric Halo graph ... ideal since you can also set a 900ms delay to advance the cutter look-ahead electronics, and both the EE and delay are before your first D/A stage. (not to mention any possile de-essing that might have to occur)

afaik, the neumann also 'favored' one side of the mono sum. So if you had out of phase info in the bass (which is why you use the EE anyway) it wouldn't completely cancel out.

Ask Leif Mases! Doubt he's designing a plug-in though...

Nope. EE's don't completely cancel anything out. The Neumann EE is the same as putting a 6dB/oct HPF on the side channel.

I recently had an EE PCB laid out for me. It's the Neumann EE77 circuit with some mods. I haven't done final tweaks yet but I can make a few builds available when I'm ready.

If you work with samplitude, there is an built in mulriband stereo enhancer, there you have three band, and the stereo infomation can be set to from 0%-150% . This is very usefull if you have for example out of phase guitars and you need some stereo information left in the low end you can set it to 60% or so. Then you can look at the groove if its enough.... So your very flexible with this tool....

I know it's not a plugin but has anyone here tried a Bedini B.A.S.E when cutting lacquers?
