Precision K-Stereo™ Ambience Recovery
Precision K-Stereo Ambience Recovery
Amazing Final Touch
I love the K-Stereo. Pretty much on anything from musical instruments, vocals to the overall mix.
You have the ability to control EQ levels which is really nice.
The pre-sets are also wonderful to work from once you find the right one for what sound you are looking for.
If you are looking for that BIGGER FULLER Sound you can not go wrong with the K-Stereo and its magic touch.
This plug adds a subtle but noticeable stereo imaging boost. It makes my mixes seem more spatial and gives clarity to individual components in the mix by means of that spatial spread. Very cool....I use it on all my mixes.
That missing link of Mo Better!
Just demo this plug and put it last on your master, put on your phones and listen to what the different presets do and you'll realize this plug is like nothing else you've got. To my ears it just makes my mixes Mo Better, a genius plug. When you start messing with the knobs you start hearing its potential to widen the stage or change the timbre of different instruments within the mix. Bang for buck this plug is a must have. Now I wanna go back to my recent mixes... It's that good!
Ok... This is a great plug-in. I downloaded the demo and after 2 days I was sold on this plug-in. The stereo depth and widening effect is subtle but makes a world of difference. Thank UA and Bob Katz. This is a great plug-in
It's great and amazing! Bob Katz is genius!!
It's easy to use with good presets.
Redimensioning Your Mix.
I recently tryed the K-Stereo on a film mix and I noticed that not only the ambience comes to life but the dimension obtained for the audio signal is realy amazing. Combining the K-Stereo with the Precision Limiter and the Poultec Pro, I reached to a desired plastic results more easy than ever before, with four or five steps a healthy audio signal jumped from a common shotgun mic texture to an acoustic 3D ambiance, that should not be too easier to reach without those tools. I also tried the Fairchild as an substitute for the Precision Limiter in order to get more specific control in the compression, which helped me with some issues of S/N.
One other thing about the K-Stereo was the natural sounding that tool provides leaving your imaginati
This is a superb unit that opens a ambience of great sound quality.
It is a clean and clear plug-in needed for all forms of mastering.
It has all that is needed for great sound to be added to any and all types of recorded sound tracks.
I've had Bob mastering some of my music over the years, and I have to say it feels as if some of that magic he worked on the tracks - I now have readily available at my own hands. This plug very quickly turned into an indispensible tool for me once I got it. Whenever the mastering compression narrows the stereo impression on any of my mixes - and that happens all the time - this is the tool that makes it all ok again. Should've gotten it sooner.
GOT ME 1
just bought it. Just tried it for a while.
YES this is my missing link!
Add master space and width, without adding reverbs or rooms.
The reverbs mostly drive trhe sound to the back..
Not so the K-stereo! it makes you look up and smile...
My favorite UAD plug
This one makes everything come together in the same room with natural sounding depth. A true gem here
open your mix
I have been mixing for a long time looking for something to remove the "box" from my recordings. sucking out some frequncy at 240 or so sometimes helps and then other times it does not but the prescision k is a sure fix. untouchable, just can't do without this . you can spend the next 20 minutes reviewing more of these notes, but i'll save you the time. it is worth it and buy it now!
Simple and effective
Very good. Simple. More space and depth.
Muy buena herramienta para lograr mas espacio y claridad en las mezclas. Sencillo de usar.
Don't underestimate this plugin. It processes sound with sophistication, allowing me to widen or narrow (lots of plugins do that), play with Mid Side balance (plenty of plugins do that), to focus, refocus or de-focus sound as needed (a few plugins do that), and to fine-tune sounds in terms of their 3D behaviour (more and more plugins can do that). What THIS plugin does however, is to do it without adversely affecting timbre, harmonics and overtones, captured quality or other musical factors. Just brilliant. It will never turn coal into gold so if you are looking for a fix-it tool for a mistake this is not the plug for you. It IS the first actually musically useful plugin that doesn't sound like it is processing sound. I love it !!!!!
R U Kidding ME?
This lives in my mastering chain on every mix I do. It opens the field and I have not used any piece of equipment ever that does what this does. And it is not like I can say that it does this or that sonicaly, it just opens the stage in a way that is way pleasing to the ear. this is a gotta have !
Special K for Drums
The Special K was a big jump for my drum balance.
Using the deep parameter and rolling the slightest bit of bottom off in the eq section just opens up the imaging and maintains awesome punch.
Thanks UA! Another home run.
The precision K lives on my master buss : period. I am completely satisfied with it. It allows you to finesse your sound insubtle and beautiful ways. It also has extremely useful Presets for groups and individual tracks. A powerful tool i recommend. !
Wonderful & Amazing
I love it and use it for final mixes on the Master Buss as well as certain individual channels that need a wide audio image.
It makes everything sound more authentic and alive.
Thank you and keep up the great Plug's.
K-Stereo is Amazing! Subtle & Transparent
Just tried K-Stereo on a full mix. I immediately heard the difference...a subtle increase in wideness and clarity...just the right amount of sparkle. A quick A/B confirmed this was no placebo effect, lõl. Didn't even need to re-EQ...what a time-saver this plug-in is!!
Thank you, Mr. Katz and UA...Kudos...you've done it again!!! :-)
My new GoTO
This is hands down by far the best stereo plug I own.. "and that would be most of them"
Love the way it widens!!!
The Kat'z Meow (no one has used that one yet??)
Yes, you can achieve similar sounds by carefully tweaking stereo delays to create your own haas effect. However, in a mastering session, I'd rather have a simple tool I can just tweak a few controls on and have it do what its supposed to. Small amounts of this can give things a subtle expansion of space and presence, and I've also noticed an overall smoothness that sounds very pleasing on most things. It's one of those effects that you don't notice THAT much when you first engage it, (unless it's cranked) but you really miss it when it is turned off. Bob is a hero of mine, and I'm pleased that he and UA partnered to bring this processor to the UAD platform. It's also fantastic on backing vocals and various stereo group busses in a mix!
