MSED is a professional audio encoder-decoder AAX, AudioUnit, and VST plugin for mid-side processing which is able to encode (split) the incoming stereo signal into two components: mid-side pair, and vice versa: decode mid-side signal pair into stereo signal.
MSED is also able to work in the “inline” mode with the ability to adjust mid and side channels’ gain and panning without the need of using two plugin instances in sequence.
MSED can be used to flip the phase of the mid and side channels by 180 degrees, and swap the stereo channels, and extract the mid or side channel.
MSED features the “plasma” vectorscope, stereo correlation, and balance meters which make it easier to monitor the stereo information present in the audio signal.

View Installation Instructions
For VST plug-ins on the Windows platform:
You should unpack ZIP file you have downloaded into the "VstPlugins" folder, the one which is connected with the audio application you are using and where this application expects VST plug-ins to reside (it is also suggested to create the "Voxengo" or "Voxengo64" for 64-bit plug-ins sub-folder there, and unpack the archive there instead of the main "VstPlugins" folder).
For VST/AudioUnit plug-ins on Mac OS X platform:
You should open the DMG disk image (which you already did since you are reading this file) and drag & drop the "component" (or "vst") package from it into the corresponding plug-in folder located in the "/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/" folder on the harddisk (the "component" package should go to the "/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components/" folder while the "vst" package should go to the "/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST/" folder). Note that a direct link to this folder is present in the DMG archive. After this has been done you will need to order your audio application to rescan plug-ins, or if that option is unavailable you will need to re-start this application. Note that plug-ins cannot work without an audio application that hosts/loads them.
