It’s a simple plug, but it can be very useful if you
have a busy mix with a lot of bass and low-end
rumble, or if you want your vocals to stand out off
the bat, or if you want to lighten and brighten a
dull or dark vocals. It’s great for group vocals,
choir, back-up vocals, and lead vocals.
It spreads out the signal across the stereo track,
which can help the vocals stir clear of the muddy
areas (like bass and kick in the middle) while
keeping the vocals bright and centered. I’ve added a
‘body’ control which works the same way as in HUE-X
in case you want the sound to be more upfront, since
spreading may cause it to sound lighter (e.g. for
the main vocals).
This plugin is not limited to vocals, although it
was designed for vocals. It could sound nice with
acoustic instruments, just try it out.
Vocal Spread is available to download as a freeware
VST effect plug-in for Windows.
