AES 144 | Thank You Sponsors! Mathew Lane

Mathew Lane audiotools are innovative new solutions, created when no other hardware or software could be found suitable for the task.

The DrMS spatial processor is Mathew Lane's first product, already widely accepted by audio professionals as a unique plugin. It's being used by top producers and engineers on songs by well known artists such as Black Eyed Peas, Coldplay and many others. Legendary mix engineer Dave Pensado is a fan and has been showing the use of DrMS on several of his Pensado's Place Into The Lair videos. DrMS is a unique spatial processor, available as AAX/RTAS/AU/VST plugin, with a wide range of applications for mixing, mastering and post production - going from simple MS (Mid-Side) encoding/decoding, over stereo field width and depth enhancement, to fixing mono compatibility issues and more. DrMS now also has little brother called StereoDelta. And even more, Mathew Lane has recently gone hardware by introducing the OnTheMoon SPACECRAFT, a unique analog spatial processor based on his spatialising technology.
