|It is obvious that the ToolMod system
can be used to combine any kind of modules in any desired way. The ToolMod Stereo
Mastering sets are some examples of setups for this purpose. The pictures show
three versions of the stereo mastering set, the ToolMod BM, BMB, and the ToolMod
MSM stereo mastering set with m/s matrix.
Stereo Mastering with ToolMod Pro Audio
These ToolMod Stereo Mastering Sets show possible combinations of ToolMod modules for mastering applications.
The Stereo Mastering Set BM combines
5 Band TM205 Stereo Equalizer, TM222
Stereo Mastering Compressor and TM215b
Stereo Peak Limiter. All important processing devices that can be used with
any kind of mastering are included. Effective equalization features, global corrections
as well as subtle shaping, are combined with extensive dynamics processing set.
The Mastering Set BMB offers the same features but the Mastering Peak Limiter
Stereo Limiter TM215. The fully
parametric 4-Band Mastering EQ TM204 can be installed instead of the TM205 5-band version.
The Mastering Set MSM also uses the TM205
Stereo Equalizer or the TM204 fully
parametric 4-Band Mastering EQ and the Mastering
Compressor but the limiter is replaced by the M/S
Matrix with Stereo Direction Controller TM130. This set offers the additional
feature of influencing the spatial image of the stereo signal effectively. The
elliptical equalizer of the M/S matrix maintains a centered bass fundament and
The M/S Stereo Mastering
is an alternative to the mastering set that offers very special features for
the modificatio of the spatial image of a stereo signal.
ToolMod M/S Processor with 4-Band M/S Equalizer, M/S Compressor, and M/S Matrix with elliptic EQ
The M/S Processor comes with a special, fully parametric 4-Band equalizer
that operates in the m/s path and makes possible to enhance or reduce the base
width depending on the setting of the eq bands. The M/S Mastering Compressor
adds a wide variety of features to the TM222 Stereo Mastering Compressor. The
M/S Processor is completed by the mastering version of the M/S Matrix with elliptic
equalizer TM130m. Such systems can also be installed in a vertical 4U high frame
that offers enough space for additional modules and additional functions.
