An Audacity plug-in that eliminates center-panned content by turning stereo signal into mono

editor's review



Center Pan Remover is an Audacity plugin that gets rid of center-panned content by creating mono signal from stereo mode. It is very simple to use, as there are few adjustable settings available.

To install this plugin, all you have to do is move the file to Audacity's installed directory. You can bring up the main window from the "Effects" menu.

So, you can invert the band or channel by moving a slider, as well as remove frequencies above or below a specific value in the same way. Alternatively, you can directly input the numerical values.

Aside from applying the new settings, Center Pan Remover lets you run a debugger. Command-line parameters are available for advanced users. There are no other options provided by this tool.

The simple-to-use plug-in does not burden Audacity's performance. It has a good response time and serves its purpose without error. We have not come across any issues in our evaluation, since Center Pan Remover did not hang or crash. All in all, this handy Audacity extension should please all users. Unfortunately, it has not been updated for a while.
