The M/S MATRIX converts a Left/Right-Stereo-Signal into its Mid and Side Components. The Mid component is the sum of the left and right signal while the Side component is the difference between left and right. Second, it converts a Mid/Side-Stereo signal back into its left and right components.
This is very useful to change the base-width of a stereo signal for example. Many other applications for that module are possible:
changing the stereo base-width to mono for lower frequencies (using a inserted filter in the side-signal chain)
compressing the side signal differently as the mid signal to exaggerate the %u201eambience%u201c of a recorded or mixed stereo signal
endless possibilities for crazy manipulations of stereo signals.
