Didn’t somebody do a stereo boost filter? It should be grade school level programming. Convert the stereo show to L+R and L-R, change the ratio between them, effectively increasing or decreasing the separation and then put it back to L and R.
This is different from making stereo where none had existed before. I know we did that, but I can’t find it.
You can employ the channel-mixer plug-in to widen the stereo image or the seperate stereo widenener.
To create stereo from nada, you can use the pseudo-stereo plug-in.
We could of course also write a plug-in, that converts L/R explicitly to M/S and vice-versa (or include the presets in the channel-mixer plug).
Convert to M/S:
(New Left Channel --< Mid) 50% left and 50% right.
(New Right Channel --< Side) 50% left and -50% right.
Convert back to L/R:
(New Left Channel) 100% left and 100% right.
(New Right Channel) 100% left and -100% right.
[Edit: values corrected]
Fortunately, the plug-in is located on the Nyquist download page: http://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/Nyqui … nnel_Mixer
If you’d ask me, it should be included in the Audacity release, but that’s subjective.
