Precision K-Stereo™ Ambience Recovery
Precision K-Stereo Ambience Recovery
The first stereo spread device that I have tried that sounds natural. Thanks Bob!
I like this thing, it adds dimension, depth, richness and when used properly in front or behind a compressor in a chain, it can make some amazing spatial sounds.

Espectro muy grande
Estoy muy contento de adquirir Precision K-Ambience recovery porque me permite mejorar mi imagen estéreo y modelar mi sonido de una forma fácil y contundente, tambien he ganado profundidad en las mezclas y mastering, muy bien pensado UAD.
LOVE THIS PLUGIN!! IT JUST BRING SO MUCH MORE LIFE TO THE MIX. BE CAREFUL NOT TO OVER DO IT1 LOVE ITTT
très utile pour les mastering maison
je ne prétends faire le travail d'un véritable ingénieur de mastering dans un studio digne de ce nom, mais chez moi ça le fait parfaitement pour finaliser divers projets, avec une profondeur et une largeur de son que j'obtenais difficilement jusqu'ici !
We are using every time.
Very specific application, but very useful
I had some audio restoration work to do... so I was excited to use this on some overly-roomy dialog to dry it up a bit, and I'll say this: It's definitely doing the work... but it's very subtle, even at the more extreme ends of the dial. So my expectations were a little bit out of line with what it really does... but it's definitely a good plug-in for changing the room-character of recorded material. I like it quite a bit for what it can do to stereo drums / overheads... Also, on a badly recorded chamber orchestra...
Well I love it
I really like what this does , I use it on mastering, and sometimes on drum bus, It really brings things alive.
It's really magic key for missing depth and width. No phase movement. Clear and smooth.
Use this every day in my project
Does what it says on the tin, better than anything else out there!
As with all the other Universal Audio software, it out shines all the competitors. I was using another plugin to widen my tracks until I demoed this. The Precision K-Stereo retired said plugin. If you are into serious A-B of plugins like I am, this is top of the class. Cheers!
Give Your Mix A Wider Sound
Although I am fairly new to the apollo hardware, I have found a few plugins that serve very specific purposes... This is one of those plugins. If you need to add that extra "width" to your mix, this plugin is really good at getting the job done! If you are looking for a plugin to change the way your mix sounds completely... Look elsewhere (Mastering eq...etc.).
This plugin has a very specific purpose... Which is making your mix sound wider, if that is what you are looking for, this sucker will do the trick, just keep your expectations realistic, and as most will tell you on the site... DEMO IT FIRST lol.
Good M/S gear
The Mid/Side Gain function is very useful but other sections (ambience, ambience eq filter) are just hyped promotions.
A unique and good sounding plugin!
We know that Bob Katz is a popular and published mastering engineer. I've read sections of his book and it's quite good. Funnily enough, I "cold-called" him about 10 or 12 years ago to ask him a question concerning master clocks. He picked up the phone and was very helpful!
Anyway, I decided to give the K-Stereo a try during a mix I was doing tonight. The track had an electric bass that was recorded with artificial reverb, and there was no "dry" track in the session--only wet. I was really looking for something to remove ambience as to get some more presence for the bass. I tried the Transient Designer and a host of other "fixes" to no avail. Finally, I accepted the fact that I was stuck with this wet sound, so I decided to go towards wet intend of away from. I inserted the K-Stereo before any eq and compression, but after a high-pass filter in the beginning of the fx chain. After demoing all the presets, I A/B'd between "Rock Tight Bass" and "Dark Ambience." I settled on "Dark Ambience." The K-Stereo made the bass just sound better and actually put the bass into a believable space! Cool! I can't wait to try it out in more situations. Thanks.
Always On The Mix Buss
This ends up on the mix buss for 90% of the mixes I perform. Things just sound better with it turned on and tuned to it's default setting. Occasionally, I'll engage the HPF but not often.
This plugin puts a rainbow over your horizon.
My LIFE is CHANGED FORVER !
I lost weight and gain muscles , ear muscles from this stereo field DIAMOND !!
Brings a little more life to vocals
I use this on some vocals and it helps with just that extra bit of zing I need to bring certain songs to life.
Great mix/master tool
Super intuitive and a breeze to use. It's one of those plugs/boxes that makes life a lot easier. I'll add this one to my top 5.
If used on the right things.......
K Stereo can be a life saver for some mixes. Others it ruins. I had a very dense, fairly mono master that I had struggled to make sound attractive. Put the k-stereo on and it sorted all the flatness out. Other mixes it can destroy. Use at about -4 and check on headphones
