Chace Surround Stereo™

From Chace Audio

Chace Surround Stereo™ was developed in 1986 by Chace Productions to convert monaural film soundtracks into true directional stereo for television broadcasts. Unlike other methods of creating stereo from mono in this period, this proprietary offline software and hardware system was able to create real time panning of music, dialog, and effects via the manual manipulation of “stereo cues” during complex sequences. These cues allowed complete control over how sound moved across the stereo field by specially trained audio engineers/sound designers in anticipation of creating a new stereo mix.

Chace Productions updated the technology in the late 1990s as Chace Digital Stereo® (CDS). CDS is able to convert monaural or stereo soundtracks into true directional 5.1 or 6.1 surround sound.
