World Famous electronic duo Infected
Mushroom and Polyverse are proud to announce Wider,
a unique stereo effect for free.
Wider takes the massively popular
stereo section from its sibling, Manipulator, and
gives any user the ability to expand their stereo
image of any signal to an awe-inspiring amount of
width. However, Wider is a unique stereo plugin in
the sense that it is completely "mono-compatible",
meaning that any signal that has been extended will
always remain in phase with itself, even if summed
Many stereo effects currently in use
have the nasty habit of knocking signals out of
phase, which can quickly make mixes sound muddy and
unbalanced, or make sounds seem flat and lacking
dynamics if one isn't mindful of the effect. Thanks
to Wider's one-of-a-kind all pass and comb filtering
algorithm, no phase in any mix or affected audio
will be compromised, even at its broadest setting!
Instead, Wider cancels itself out when summed to
mono, so the original signal is left intact: a
feature you won't find in any other stereo plugin.
Wider can be used to increase the
stereo image of any signal up to 200% of full stereo
for an extra wide, exaggerated effect.
Wider is available in VST, AU, and
AAX formats, making it compatible with a variety of
host applications, including Ableton Live, Logic,
Pro Tools, Cubase, and Studio One. It can be used in
32 or 64-bit instances with Windows XP and later and
with Mac OS X 10.6 and later.
