Overview

Little Labs® IBP Phase Alignment Tool Plug-In

In-Between Phase Alignment “Fix-It” Tool & Creative Phase Manipulation Plug-In

The Little Labs IBP Phase Alignment Tool easily eliminates the undesirable hollow comb-filtered sound when combining out-of-phase and partially out-of-phase audio signals. Designed as a phase problem-solving device, the award-winning Little Labs IBP (In-Between Phase) has established itself with audio engineers as not only a “fix it” tool, but as a tool for manipulating audio phase as a creative, tonal color tool. Whether combining direct and miked signals, acoustic guitar and vocal mics, drum kit mics, or multiple split-guitar amps, the recorded audio signal phase can be quickly and easily controlled. UA’s “Workstation” version expands upon the original design with a continuous Delay Adjust control.

Features include the all-important 0º through 180º “in-between-phase” continuous control, with a 0º through 90º option for finer control. Also included is the “Phase Center” high and low position filter switch that adds additional frequency-dependent control over the phase-adjusted source. A standard 0º/180º Phase Invert switch is included, as well as individual bypass switches for the Phase Adjust and Delay Adjust sections of the circuit. Lastly, a Power switch is provided to bypass the whole plug-in.

    "Having the software version [of the Little Labs IBP] has made me wonder how I ever got by without it all these years."

    Paul Lavigne

    DV Magazine

    "I never thought the UAD Little Labs IBP would have such an impact on the sound, but by carefully tweaking the delay and phase controls, I was able to get a bigger and much more powerful sound."

    "A tool unlike any other in your kit. I absolutely love my hardware IBP & I can’t recommend the plug-in highly enough."

    by A. Gamez(Tuesday 10 March, 2015)

    I always take my time to adjust phase in my recordings, it is such an obvious and simple step and yet, so indispensable. Having this tools allows me to adjust phase, not only in 180 degree inversions, but dial in just the amount of phase reversal I need It is a tool I ALWAYS use now to… Read More

    A Must-Have Utility
    by J. Clement(Monday 9 February, 2015)

    You need this one, even if you don't know it yet. I had purchased IBP for one track that didn't really get better or worse flipping phase, just kind of neutral either way. But when I got curious and started playing with IBP on other tracks, the real usefulness of this bit of software… Read More

    Love the control for Phase Correction.
    by R. Cross (Monday 12 January, 2015)

    This plug saves me so much time and effort. I use it on every other tom track and opposing overhead mics, snare mics and internal and external kick mics. It uses very little processing power and allows me to keep the channel strips completely free of other, more complex plugs that I like not… Read More
