Stereo Simulator

Model Details

The versatile sound processor designed to create a wide range of effects
including convincing stereo from any mono source.
How the AN-2 Stereo Simulator Works
The Studio Technologies AN-2 Stereo Simulator utilizes new
discoveries in the way the human brain processes sound
All natural musical instruments, whether singly or in groups,
emit complex sounds with the overtones and room reflections
arriving at the two ears in different patterns of phase, intensity
and time relationships. These relationships create the subjective
impression of space and depth.
The AN-2 Stereo Simulator creates two incoherent signals
from one source; simulating a stereo perception at the ears of
the listener.
Recording Studios Many times, multi-track recording of voices,
an instrument or group of instruments must be assigned to a
single track. This results in the loss of the complex overtones and
relationships in their true sound.
The AN-2 Stereo Simulator recreates that stereo space and
depth. This makes it especially useful with purely electronic
instruments such as synthesizers and guitars—instruments
usually assigned to a pan pot during mixdown (a mono device).
The AN-2 Stereo Simulator creates a much more pleasing
“spread” to the sound, allowing the instrument to be heard even
in the most complex mixes.
Also, by using the AN-2 Stereo Simulator’s modulation feature,
many new effects are possible such as stereo chorusing and
stereo pitch bends.
The AN-2 Stereo Simulator has a place in both small and large
studios as a track saver and versatile enhancer.
Broadcast & Film Unlike most outboard devices such as time
delays, harmonizers and equalizers, the AN-2 Stereo Simulator is
fully mono compatible. This means recordings produced with the
AN-2 Stereo Simulator suffer no balance distortion when heard on
AM radio.
The AN-2 Stereo Simulator is also a valuable resource
for television broadcasters that offer stereo transmission
since much of the material they must broadcast is, in fact,
And it’s ideal for converting mono film tracks to a fuller, more
contemporary “stereo” sound for either broadcast or theatre use.
As a very affordable method for creating stereo sound from
mono materials, the AN-2 Stereo Simulator is without equal.
Performance Highlights
 Restores natural timbre of acoustic instruments—adds warmth
and reality to synthesized ones.
 Completely mono-compatible—no fade-outs or phase
 Simulates the sound of a spaced pair of microphones without
loss of mono compatibility.
Simulates space without reverberation by using random,
non-recursive filter techniques.
 Adds “air” and “definition” to mix, reducing the need for
 Variable width control allows “spread” and “size” of image to
match sound.
