This is simple but very useful plugin for audio track synchronizing.
For example, you have recorded guitar with two microphones placed in different
location. Because the front of sound wave has fixed speed in normal conditions,
the phasing of microphones can vary and depends on their location and
interposition. The best sound mix you will get when these microphones are in
phase (synchronized). Note that distance of ~30 cm between microphones makes
one microphone to capture signal in antiphase to another microphone. That makes
the final mix sounding moody. This plugin helps to solve phasing problems by
adding different delays to each microphone track and make them synchronized.
How to synchronize microphones:
• Place microphones such that they will capture the best shape of signal
• Take the roulette and measure distance between sound source and each
• Record signal as usual and do not worry abouth phasing problems
• Add this plugin to each recorded track
• Set distance value on each plugin equal to the distance for the most far
separated microphone plus some spare centimeters (5-10 centimeters is
• For each track subtract from distance value you have set on the previous
step corresponding value that you have measured on step 1
• Now tightly rotate distance knobs and listen how does the mixed signal
change. Synchronized microphones sound much louder and much cleaner. Use
millimeter distance knob for fine tuning.
The best result can be reached when you take one track as base and synchronize
other tracks one by one with it.
Remember that synchronization/delay tolerance depends on sample rate, too.
Higher sample rates will give more tolerance.
• Meters:Compensation distance (meters) for hard distance setup
• Centimeters:Compensation distance (centimeters) for tighten distance setup
• Millimetters:Compensation distance (millimeters) for fine tuning
• Dry Amount: Amount of the unprocessed (dry) signal.
• Wet Amount: Amount of the processed (wet) signal.
