Plugin Boutique has announced that the MSW1 stereo imaging effect plugin by SoundSpot is available as a free download for a limited time.
The plugin offers ultra smooth stereo imaging for mixing and mastering.
A well balanced stereo image is essential in any mix. It can be a challenge however, to assign the proper amount of space to all individual elements in your mix without stressing your CPU, or to smoothly automate the entire stereo image during mastering.
We designed MSW1 to be an ultra light tool for quickly narrowing or widening any stereo track, with just one control. It is extremely well suited for automation purposes, because the main control, as well as the bypass function, is smoothed out to prevent any clicks or pops when changing settings fast.
The MSW1 is a quick and easy tool for smooth efficient stereo imaging.
MSW1 is available for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX).
Plugin Boutique is also offering an exclusive 55% discount on other SoundSpot plugins, including the new Focus psychoacoustics plugin and Percolate, a plugin for creating a balanced drum or percussion mix.
- VoxBox – Lead vocals are often the most important element in a mix. To get lead vocals to jump out of a mix and not get buried in the music, a technique called ‘vocal thickening’ is used widely throughout the industry. Usually this technique requires multiple channels and plug-ins to achieve the desired results. When designing VoxBox however, our aim was to create a plug-in that simplifies the vocal thickening process, without compromising on quality. VoxBox helps you widen and thicken your lead vocals in a simple and intuitive way, while being light on your CPU and keeping your mixing chain simple.
- Focus – We designed Focus to make one of the mastering industry secrets available to you using psychoacoustics – right out of the box. Focus takes care of all the wizardry behind the scenes, creating this psychoacoustic processing chain while keeping the effect mono-compatible. All you have to do is to adjust the filterband to highlight any important elements in your master you want to stand out. This technique can take your mix into a completely new sonic realm, making your kick drums punch through and helping lead vocals and instruments sit effortlessly in the mix.
- Percolate – Many modern music genres rely on groovy and danceable sounding drums and percussion. But because many drum and percussion loops come pre-mixed with different elements combined in a single track, it can be very difficult to make them work in a busy mix. We designed Percolate to help you separate and target the snare, hi-hat and percussion parts of such loops, providing you with an easy and fast workflow to create a balanced drum or percussion mix. Percolate uses analog modelled filters that separate the relevant frequency ranges in a very transparent way, and can be used in combination with our KickBox plug-in to target the whole drum or percussion section in your mix.
- KickBox – The kick drum is the backbone of many modern music genres, both electronic and acoustic. It’s oftentimes the thing you start with in a new mix, but to get it sounding just right can be a complex task. A well mixed kick drum has a warm sounding low end, doesn’t sound too boxy and pierces through the mix in a very natural way. When designing KickBox, these are the qualities we’ve focused on, simplifying the mixing process for any modern kick drum. KickBox is modeled after analog filters and separates the relevant frequency ranges in a very transparent way. KickBox can help you get your kicks sounding extremely tight in a matter of just a few clicks.
