StudioExpresso featured Armenia’s Premier Recording Studio owner Vahagn Stepanyan with legendary engineers Rafa Sardina and Moogie Canazio.
Accomplished music producer, songwriter, composer and keyboard player Vahagn Stepanyan has worked with an impressive resume of musicians across the globe. As the owner of Armenia’s premier recording studio in Yerevan, he relies on Nugenfor delivering pristine audio for his clients’ streaming projects.
Stepanyan uses Stereoizer and Monofilter on tracks and buses when he needs a wider sound. “I like how wide I can make things using Stereoizer,” he adds. “Being able to pan left and right to control the sides, while also pushing the low-end with Monofilter has been a huge benefit. I’ve tried similar solutions, but most are not mono compatible and negatively impact the signal. These NUGEN plug-ins don’t mess up the mono and the amount of the control I have with the software is really good.”
The simplicity and wide variety of the presets are among the top reasons Stepanyan continually turns to these plug-ins. “The software can be particularly useful in adjusting how the audio track sits in the mix,” he says. “I like the extra dimension that Stereoizer adds to the mono sounds, being able to turn mono tracks into natural-sounding stereo.”
