OUR PART # DECODER
The Radial Engineering Decoder is a microphone preamp and mid-side stereo matrix that allows the user to easily create recordings using the popular mid-side technique without having to custom configure a recording console. The Decoder can be used in the traditional two-microphone sum-difference method, where a "side" mic is duplicated and phase reversed on a second channel and blended with the mono "mid" microphone for a spectacular stereo image. Thanks to three built-in balanced preamplifiers, the "side"image can also be captured with stereo mics or even two different microphones. As an added feature, the Decoder may be set to line level to reamp tracks and create mid-side imaging during the mix-down process.
