112dB Redline Monitor

with one comment

Software developers ‘112dB’ have released ‘Redline Monitor’, a plug-in pitched as “a listening, mixing, and mastering tool. It replaces the extreme stereo separation that is characteristic for headphones with the detailed stereo image of near-field monitor speakers”.

From the marketing blurb…

Its proprietary algorithm performs a sophisticated combination of filtering, frequency-dependent delaying, mid/side processing, and room simulation to create a convincing acoustic soundstage that allows you to properly localize sound sources. It also adjusts the relative levels of panned sources as they appear on speakers, and moves the soundstage from an indeterminate location inside your head (with headphones) towards a clearly defined location in front of you.

Now you can accurately judge levels, stereo placement, and overall balance on your favorite set of headphones–anywhere, anytime, and without ear fatigue even after prolonged listening. No more night long headphone sessions that turn out lifeless and with too little reverb and separation on speakers. Redline Monitor makes mixes sound identical on speakers and headphones.

Available in RTAS/VST/AU format for Windows XP/Vista and Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) and up. Introductory price of €69 (Europe) / $69 (worldwide) is valid through April 21, after which the regular price becomes €99/$99.

An unrestricted 60-day evaluation is available so it could be worthwhile trying this out if you mix extensively on headphones.

112dB.

  1. After an initial trial with this plug-in, it is quite impressive. Will be comparing against monitors set up to the same settings i.e angle and distance, soon and will report back, but first impressions are very encouraging…
