* Capitol Records' "Duophonic" process, which artificially turned a lot of songs recorded in mono into pseudo-stereo. -- Amongst others, Music/TheBeatles, Music/TheBeachBoys and Music/FrankSinatra underwent this particular form of ExecutiveMeddling. Capitol Records would take a mono recording, delay the right channel by a millisecond, play it through their famed echo chamber, and -- presto! -- fake stereo. Reportedly, Brian Wilson's father Murry ''preferred'' Duophonic, so much so that 8 of their albums were only available in mono or Duophonic. Many other record companies used similar processes to create fake stereo, labeling these records as "electronically rechanneled for stereo" or "reprocessed." Most audiophiles disliked the result, preferring original mono recordings over fake stereo. The practice faded away after actual stereo recording techniques became more widespread. Most reissues of recordings in the '50s and '60s use the original mono version if an actual stereo mix isn't available.

* The vocals on the final line of the {{Vocaloid}} song ''Wide Knowledge of the Late, Madness'' use this trope to great effect, even more so when watching the video: the repeated 'watashi, watashi' swings back and forth from left to right, creating the illusion of Miku gradually breaking down until the abrupt cutoff.
