Voxengo: Stereo Touch

A free stereo-doubling effect plugin.


20 November 2023

Voxengo was founded by Aleksey Vaneev, and became a full-time commercial endeavour in 2002 after the release of its first successful equaliser plugin, CurveEQ. It has since released over 40 high quality, commercial and freeware sample rate converters and plugins, that have been downloaded by millions of users around the globe. Voxengo offers robust and efficient solutions for audio and music production, including streaming, mastering, and surround sound.

This professional AAX, AudioUnit, and VST audio plugin implements a classic technique of transforming a monophonic track into spacious stereophonic track by means of mid/side coding technique. Stereo Touch is most effective on monophonic sounds without overly sharp transients, and works great on both acoustic and electric/overdriven guitars, synthetic pad sounds, and even vocals. 

The plugin takes a mono input signal and generates a stereo output signal, allowing users to easily achieve spacious, or even ‘surround’ sounding tracks without utilising a double-tracked recording technique. Stereo Touch can also work with multi-channel input signal, but in this case all channels get processed independently of each other like they are separate mono input signals, and then all resulting stereo signals get mixed together to produce a single stereo output signal.
