Precision K-Stereo™ Ambience Recovery
Precision K-Stereo Ambience Recovery
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
This one is a must have
this plugin has to be the missing link when mastering !
Great little stereo tool.
Used it on a grand piano wich was recorded too wide and needed more punch... this plugin served me very well... never used it on a total mix tho...
Util a la hora de cerrar las mezclas o masterizar. Permite la manipulacion del estereo, rescata perdidas en el proceso de compresion, abre el estereo y deja retocar frecuencias.
As we all know Bo Katz is the audio guru of mastering and he literally wrote the book on it! This is a great tool for something that is way too close mic'd to begin with. If you want to add some air around it this is the tool that you need -also it can add at lot of stereo i if you need it
I often have to work with a dry live tracks. This little thing works wonders.
one of the best plugins:)
I use this mostly on my vocals ...very clean the precise ,Bob Katz a legend!
YES THIS IS IT
It is the SECRET trick to my mastering.
Wide, and a feeling of live sound is generated!!!
Easy to adjust with simple knob in M/S mode
Stereo width expansion.
The sound becomes wide, and a feeling of live sound is generated.
When you want, you can put it anywhere on a track insert or bus track.
Great, if you know what you do!
I bought it after all. What I like: It gives me a different flavour of a similar effect like Open Ambience Projects SHEPPI plugin, if you knof that one. UAD seems a tiny bit more focussed and "precise" (in lack of other words). Watch out for main vocals becoming too ambient on this one, though. Most mixes love it. From time to time I even use it on synth stems or reverb returns. And yes, it softens the overall picture of a mix a bit. But I like that. Ever experienced how a mix widens when transferred to real reel tape? K-Stereo is similar, but without compressing or saturating or HF detail loss.
Great on individual sounds or busses
Compared to other width plugins it's better sounding for sure.
Best for upper harmonic material i.e. Synths/pads/strings
I use only one instance in a mix usually that needs that extra width to poke out a bit.
Best for mix purposes not mastering.
Too subtle to care
I demo'd this with a worse case scenario which was probably a bad test. In most situations, this plugin will never be used. I just like specialty...but even in the worse case scenario, the change it too subtle to notice. I wouldn't recommend this unless you are looking specifically for that subtle change.
Best Stereo Plugin!
Best Stereo PLUGIN SO FAR!!!
I recommend this for sure....!
This gives you more open and detailed stereo...
Great and useful plugin for mastering. Use it when needed, be careful with phase issues.
Works exactly as described
Great plug in that is unique is control of ambiance. Could not be more satisfied.
great for precision ambience recovery
questo plugin e' utlissimo per migliorare le riprese con ambienti errati o imperfetti e per migliorare genericamente la tridimensionalità delle tracce.utile sui gruppi di batteria e nel mastering finale
