* Creator/CapitolRecords' "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. (Brian mixed in mono because he was deaf in one ear.) Many other record companies used similar processes to create fake stereo, labeling these records as "electronically rechanneled for stereo" or "reprocessed." (A few mono recordings from the 1950s actually had the voices and instruments on separate channels; these were somewhat more amenable to stereo reprocessing.) 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 from the '50s and '60s these days use the original mono version if an actual stereo mix isn't available.
