This circuit attempts to liven up mono sound sources by simulating a
stereo signal. It does this by shifting certain frequencies between left
and right to fool the ear. It can often produce a passable mock stereo
sound to bring some depth to otherwise flat recordings. Of course,
there is no way to produce real stereo sound from a purely mono source
unless the synthesizer had a way to tell which direction the original
sound came from, but an illusion is generally enough for all but the
hard core audiophile.

- This circuit was sent in by oRbEq (email address unavailable).
- S2 controls power to the circuit. Switching S1 to ground
bypasses the circuit and outputs mono sound to both output jacks.
Setting S1 to R1 enables the synthesized stereo sound at the outputs.
- The circuit draws very little current and can thus be powered
by most any well filtered 9V-12V source (including a standard 9V radio
