Six plug­ins to make your mixes su­per-stereo

Future Music - - FM TOOLKIT | STEREO WIDTH -

iZo­tope Ozone Imager | Free Us­ing tech­nol­ogy that’s cen­tral to iZo­tope’s Ozone Mas­ter­ing tools, this Imager lets you play with stereo width with min­i­mum fuss. Oh, did we men­tion that it’s free to down­load? Sound­Toys Mi­croshift | $129 Uses two key widen­ing com­po­nents – de­tune and short de­lay. By off­set­ting pitch/time by tiny amounts to one side of a chan­nel, per­ceived width soars. Sim­ple and ef­fec­tive. Waves S1 Stereo Imager | $49 Har­nesses pow­er­ful pro­cess­ing via min­i­mal con­trollers. Width con­trols over­all stereo im­age, but you can also tweak low fre­quency con­tent’s width, and atone for asym­met­ri­cal sig­nals. PSP Stere­oPack | £49 Four plug­ins, each with a dif­fer­ent ap­proach to width. Pseu­doStereo, Stere­oEn­hancer, Stere­oCon­troller and Stere­oA­nal­yser – great for cre­ative and re­me­dial treat­ments alike. UAD Pre­ci­sion K-Stereo Am­bi­ence Re­cov­ery | £149 Made with renowned ME Bob Katz, this plugin helps greatly at fi­nal pro­duc­tion stage. Its USP is in en­hanc­ing source sound am­bi­ence. Nu­genAu­dio Stereoizer | £96 A com­pre­hen­sively spec’d plugin to en­hance all things stereo, in­clud­ing the op­po­site – fold­ing down to mono, if needs must. Use­ful in mix­ing or mas­ter­ing, this is a gem.
