Wider Free Stereo Widening App

Wider by Infected Mushroom App Store Description:
Wider — derived from the massively popular stereo feature of its sibling Manipulator — expands the stereo image of a mono signal to an awe-inspiring amount of width.

However, Wider is a unique stereo plugin in the sense that it is completely “mono-compatible,” meaning that any signal that has been extended will always remain in phase with itself, even if summed to mono.

Many stereo effects currently in use have the nasty habit of knocking signals out of phase which can quickly make a track sound muddy and unbalanced, or make sounds seem flat and lacking dynamics if one isn’t mindful of the effect. Thanks to Wider’s one-of-a-kind all-pass and comb filtering algorithm, a natural-sounding stereo image is created from a mono channel without compromising the phase between the sides. Because Wider cancels itself out when summed to mono, the original signal is left intact.

Wider can be used to increase the stereo image of any mono signal up to 200% of full stereo for an extra wide, exaggerated effect.

Haaze 2 Stereo Widening App

Klevgrand Haaze 2 Stereo Widening App

Haaze is a 16 band stereo widening tool that utilizes three different methods of controlling the stereo width and spatial positioning of an audio stream.

• Haas – adds a small delay to the left or right audio channel which will make the listener believe the sounds arrives from the side that’s reaching the ear first.

• Pan – Alters the gain level on one of the audio channels. All 16 bands can be panned separately, so this method gets quite equal to the common “split eq” function in various equalizers.

• MS Stereo. Controls the output stereo width on each band, from normal stereo signal to mono.

There’s also a view for controlling the output gain of all bands separately.

Changes from the initial version:

• New and more transparent crossover filters
• Haas: Better control for each band
• Split EQ: Now called “PAN” and provides much more control over.
• MS Stereo: New feature in v2.0.0
• Gain: New feature in v2.0.0
• Visualization: New feature in v2.0.0
• Brand new and more intuitive UI for a better work flow.
• Several factory presets.

Full documentation available inside the app or at https://klevgrand.se/downloads/haaze-docs/

Haaze 2 is an AUv3 plugin that only works in an AUv3 compliant host like Garageband, AUM, Cubasis, Beatmaker 3, Auria etc.

Free Stereo Widener App

This is an audio unit plugin that puts a small delay between the left and right channels.

Why would you want to do that? Here’s why:

We recently saw a video interview of a very famous guitarist in which his guitar was delayed a few milliseconds in the right channel. It may have been caused by unusual microphone placement, or perhaps it was just an error on the part of the person who recorded the video. Whatever the reason for it, it sounded great. He was playing into a vintage amp with no other reverb or delay, but the sound had a wide stereo image that didn’t sound electronic or artificial and didn’t distort the natural sound of the amp.

With most delay effects it’s not so easy to get a precise, very small delay on just one channel, but this app does it with just one simple control.

In case you need to modulate the effect, this plugin smoothly transitions between different delay time settings, causing a pitch shift while the delay time is on the move toward its new setting.

This plugin is simple, so we are giving it away for free. Enjoy!

Stereo Modulator For Mono Tracks
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

Ran my Les Paul through this new mono to stereo audio unit effect called Stereo Modulator. PUT YOUR HEADPHONES ON! Honestly I wish I didn’t feel rushed with this video I wanted to make it longer but figured folks might just want to hear the modulation part of it on a guitar. My wife was giving the baby a bath and she started crying so I just said screw it and made the demo short. It has a very clean widening effect with the modulation LFO down.

Stereo Modulator is an AU3 effect that converts mono sound into stereo, with an adjustable width and optional stereo modulation.

It works by using a bank of randomized stereo de-correlators that apply micro-delays introduce random differences between the spectrums of the left and right audio channels. In its output we hear a natural sense of space that is not present in mono recordings. It’s similar to the sound space one gets from using a stereo reverb plugin except that it is tight and clear, without any feeling of echo.

It can operate either as a static effect or it can be gently modulated by a low-frequency oscillator. The modulation is akin to the sound of a Leslie speaker, except that it doesn’t do any pitch shifting, so the output remains focused and tuning is not compromised.

This effect is especially useful for mixing electric guitars together with vocals. Using Stereo Modulator on the guitars, we can push them out to the sides, creating a space in the centre for the vocal to cut through, without needing to reduce the volume of the guitars.

NOTE: Stereo Modulator is an AU3 plugin only, not a standalone app. To use it, you will need an audio unit host app such as Garageband or Audiobus.
