The whiteblack is one of the better vocal processors on the market, however; its constraints are in the realm of phase cancellation due to the collision of both mid and side; along with stereo competing.
The unreleased version of this now resolves these issues by better introducing a true to mid&side measure of utilizing true mono to achieve the effect. This is a positive step forward, especially in light of the effect designed by H Lauridsen in the fifties to be utilized so as to provide a spatial stereo-like effect as a result. The knobs will also react more efficiently as there has been many advancements by the dev team.
This beta however is coming along nicely, assuming that you can carefully work the controls the whiteblack works as intended; it’s merely the science of mid and side versus stereo that becomes an obstacle. A planned change will be the introduction of an algorithm which automatically avoids phase dependent on the state of the controls.
