Precision K-Stereo™ Ambience Recovery
Precision K-Stereo Ambience Recovery
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
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.

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.
