Gemini is the first mid/side processor in 120V technology. In mastering, M/S processing is often the best way to get targeted access to individual elements of a mix.
The decomposition of the stereo signal in mid (voice, snare, bass …) and side (guitars, pads, cymbals …) allows their separate processing.
The center signal (Mid) is the sum of the left and right channel of the stereo signal (L+R), i.e. the “in phase” part of the stereo signal.
The side signal (Side) is the difference of the left and right channels of the stereo signal (L-R), i.e. the “out-of-phase” part of the stereo signal.
Gemini can also be used to enlarge or reduce the stereo image. An elliptical filter for shifting the low frequency component from the side to the mid is also on board.
I/Os and Inserts:
All inputs and outputs as well as sends and returns are balanced using Neutrik XLR connectors.
Processors can be connected to the inserts for external processing.
Especially interesting is the integration of the Gemini into the Hermes Mastering Router. In this way, processing chains can be created that combine classic L/R processing with M/S processing.
