I've tried this on a one dimensional live-recording (with about 9 vocal-mics panned to the center). The only stereo-information came from a reverb and an electric piano. Inserting this plugin and choosing the preset "Big" instantly gave the mix a smooth, enjoyable width. The vocals were suddenly blending perfectly! Wow.

Precise subtlety is not something companies usually focus on when making a new plugin.
Lots of elegance and musicality in the design of this. a rare kind.
Thanks Bob and UAD
Very good tool!
I use this tool to design the stereo depth and stereo width. A few subtle attitudes already lead to fine results and success. The user interface is very clear and explains itself. The sound results are very good!
Wish I never bought it
Works don’t over saturate the signal
Like all signal processors via hardware or software it depends solely on the goal of the mixing engineer. This has a place in my toolbox.
Must have plugin.
This is a very unique plugin but extremely helpful help enhance ambience. Of course the ambience and room had to already be there. It doesn’t create ambience but enhances what you’ve already recorded so it breathes more life into said recording. Love it!
I only know that it sounds nice.
Another Golden Moment
UAD Killed it again ... Thank You!
I LOVE IT!!!
I’m creating some very nice depth with this! It’s the plug-in I’ve been waiting for! Thank you UA!!!!
Brilliant bit of kit
I feel deep respect and gratitude to the person who created this device. Many thanks!
Thank you Bob Katz and Universal Audio for this brilliant plugin. It sounds smooth and natural, I personally love it especially for mastering. Very useful tool.
doesn't seem to work on every type of material, but when it does, it's like magic. widening is subtle, but extremely natural and doesn't mess with the stereo image.
A Little Goes A Long Way
This is one of those products where just a little bit goes a long way. I use this plug-in as a stereo widener only, I don’t use the ambience recovery feature at all. Maybe I will down the road. I compared this plug to several other stereo wideners Including the JST Sidewidener, Izotope’s Stereo Imager, Goodhertz Mid-Side Matrix and Logic’s native stereo directional plug among others and this one did the best job of making it sound huge while still being undetectable unless you A/B it with the unprocessed audio. I just lower the mid a decibel or two, raise the sides a half decibel or so, set gain compensation and BOOM! This plug will most likely be on all my master chains from now on. Love it.
Superb, spot on controls , but beware , you'll so love that you'll over abuse it easily .... i did lol
