Dangerous Music

Dangerous S&M Limited Edition


The Dangerous Music S&M mid-side processing matrix is revered in the mixing and mastering community—cherished by those who possess it and pursued by those who don’t.

Years after its extinction, the S&M returns to the audio wild in a limited supply. 100 units have been meticulously produced under the watchful eye of their creator, Chris Muth, each bearing his signature and an official numbered, metal credit card-style certificate of authenticity.

PreOrder now, Shipping now , launching May 1.


Legendary across the Billboard charts, the S&M cracks open a stereo track allowing the center and sides to be affected separately. Juice up the overall top end then de-ess that vocal without destroying the ethereal shimmer on the sides. Take your ‘perfect’ drum sound from a stereo pair of overheads, where the snare is too loud and resolve it in seconds with a limiter on the Sum channel. Peel back the mung from the bass so it punches hard, while never choking the guitars or heft-laden synth riffs.

The S&M will create wider and tighter landscapes with a dram of sparkle. Deploy it classically or experimentally as a most potent creation tool.
