Precision K-Stereo™ Ambience Recovery
Precision K-Stereo Ambience Recovery
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
This Plug is amazing...
I put this plug on my Master Buss for every mix I do. It is so subtle but you just feel a loss in depth when you turn it off. It's more of a feeling than something you hear. LOVE IT!!!

A Stereo image is worth a thousand words.
I used it for Classical mixes or acoustic music mixes. I will no fix your bad recording or mix, but it will give you a very stunning stereo image. It you are looking for something too audible...this is not your choice, but if you are looking for something transparent, with superior quality and no mix modification...this is your choice. Basically it works on the details. Amazing tool to make great stereo imagining mixes.
From Subtle to Magic
I'm gonna easily give this 5 Stars because it does what it says it will do. It can be a subtle enhancement... or outright magic! I sure like having all the options and I wouldn't want to be without the K-Stereo. And please note that by subtle I do not mean trivial or imperceptible. This is a quality product and can make a significant difference.
Precision K Stereo
If you don't have it buy it it's worth it.
I use a lot on piano and drums bus.
Thank you UA.

Really awesome plug, is perfet for all type mastering and tracks.
Precision K, a Bob Katz house call.
Yes, a bit like having the "master" himself on your mix session. Used judiciously, and with a bit of experimentation, the spacial improvement, mainly depth of field is most welcome. Care must be used not to alter the "mono-ness" of the bass frequencies. When necessary, I incorporate another plug in that allows me to mono frequencies below whatever frequency threshold I set. Only on rare occasions is this employed. I really like what the Precision K does for my mixes and Masters.
MUY FACIL DE USAR.....
Si bien es cierto que con otros plugin (varios) se pueden obtener resultados similares, la facilidad de uso y el todo en uno me enamora de este plugin. Crea un sonido vivo y realista en un sólo plugin y siempre con la ventaja del uso DSP UAD, que deja la cpu del ordenador libre para otras acciones. RECOMENDADO!
5 stars. Love all the UAD plugins

Nice and useful plug in
I havent had much time to try it as much as I like. But it makes music sounds different, richer and colorful giving it a different presencié. I uses it in master track but I think Is perfect to separate frequencies in a bass and drum bus or in synth and vocal tracks to spread stereo field. Nice.
Great to make a mix wide open without loosing pressure!!
Very Useful, Adds dimension lost from vca compressors
Vca compressors, which provide excellent glue to mixes often shrink mixes somewhat. This plugin is an elegant solution to recovering the width and depth lost. In conjunction with a few select outboard pieces this can really bring a song to life. I haven't had the issue with drums that others have in terms on phasing or delays. I wonder if some of the people hearing this are having latency issues. Or perhaps, I haven't pushed it to the max yet.
The Missing Link
Well I won't lie i was kinda skeptical at first cuz as Bob Katz said"it's not a reverb,neither an imager"than what is it?
So i demoed it...Opened my recently mixed track in DAW and the mastering chain i used was
Manley Massive Passive
Precision K Stereo
Shadow Hills Mastering Compressor
Ampex ATR 102
Kept K stereo disabeled and worked my way down the chain adjusting everything to taste until i was happy with the way it was sounding
then i enabled K stereo and set recovery at 1.5 ,enabled M/S gain and set Side to 2 and there you have it...the other dimension which is really hard to achieve otherwise.
I find this plugin remarkable. If you're at that stage in a mix where your balance sounds good but you're lacking that extra space and width that other mixes seem to get, just drop this over the mix bus. Works brilliantly on vocal groups too. All the presets are brilliant and it's ending up on every mix and master I'm now working on.
