• Mid Side Mini -  Simple MS Mid-Side Encoder Decoder Matrix for Mastering, Assembled and Tested PC Board

This is an assembled and tested circuit board for the MS Matrix based on the design published in the Pro Audio Design Forum and used by mastering facilities world-wide. The Precision MS Matrix uses THAT1240-series line receivers with resistor matching of 0.005% to perform high accuracy mid-side sum and difference functions. The crosstalk performance is typically >60 dB across the full audio band.

The Mid Side Mini M/S Matrix provides simultaneous encode/decode capability. THAT1246 line receivers and THAT1646 OutSmarts
® line drivers provide fully-balanced I/O for the encoder and decoder inputs and outputs.

With most material Mid has excess level and Side too little level. The Mid Side Mini provides jumper-selectable -6 dB gain offset in the encoder to reduce Mid channel build-up. The Side channel can also provide +6 dB of encoder gain by swapping encoder ICs from a THAT1240 to a THAT1246. (Both are include with the assembled board.) Mid and Side decoder levels are jumper-selectable to compensate for encoder gain offsets.

The construction thread for the Mid Side Mini M/S Matrix is featured in the Pro Audio Design Forum.

The Mid Side Mini MS Matrix is sold as either a bare PC board, a "kit" including THAT1240, THAT1246 and THAT1646 ICs, or an assembled and fully-tested module.

A Mouser Electronics Project Manager bill-of-materials is available for DIY builds of the Precision MS Matrix.
