Bitwig Preset: CLR Dynamics

Bitwig Preset CLR Dynamics

Center Left Right upwards and downwards compression. A bit different than MSLR. MSLR is a compromise between MS and LR, just all 4 channels mixed together. CLR is a MS split, but for the Sides, dynamics are applied LR and then sent to the Side channel. It's kinda the best of both MS and LR. You get the clean stereo-ness of LR without losing your phantom center thanks to the Mid channel processing. Processing the Side as one channel can have a flattening effect on the stereo image, so this is an effort to avoid that. As always, the Upwards compression is declicked.
