Phaedrus Audio are joining Pspatial Audio to collaborate in international marketing and sales of the Stereo Lab software family.
The partnership is a logical one and complementary. Phaedrus Audio already manufactures the high quality phono preamplifiers which were especially developed for Pspatial Audio’s Stereo Lab Phono. And the SHUpHLER and FRANCINSTIEN WARP provide real-time hardware versions of the stereo correction and shuffling solutions available in Stereo Lab software.
Stereo Lab is a Macintosh High-Resolution Audio App. Originally a stereo-enhancement program called Stereo Sauce, Stereo Lab has developed over several years and, now with the addition of equalisation and noise-reduction for all shellac-era records, Ambisonic decoding, 5.1 up-conversion and full implemention of loudness measurement and adjustment to ITU BS.1770-3, the software has value to mastering, broadcast and recording sound engineers as well as sound-archivists working with media which might range from phonograph cylinders, to analogue-cassette tape, to high-resolution digital files.
Pspatial Audio produce four products which you can download:
