Polyverse Music has announced the release of an updated version of its popular stereo widening plugin.

Wider 2.0 includes a low end bypass function, allowing users to exclude the low frequencies from the stereo widening effect, along with GUI scaling settings, mono and bypass buttons, improved stability and minor bug fixes.

Wider gives users the ability to expand the stereo image of any signal to an awe-inspiring amount of width. What makes Wider unique is that it is completely “mono-compatible”, meaning that any signal that has been widened will always remain in phase with itself, even if summed to mono.
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 has always been one of our most popular plugins, and we’re excited to release this new version with even more control and flexibility for our users,” said Assaf Dar Sagol, CEO and founder of Polyverse Music. “The bypass low end function is a game-changer for anyone looking to enhance the stereo image of their sound without losing control of the low end.”

Wider is free to download in VST/VST3, AU, and AAX formats for Windows and Mac.

In addition to the release of Wider 2, Polyverse Music is also announcing the launch of its annual spring sale.

From April 4 to April 18, 2023, customers can enjoy up to 33% off on several popular plugins at the Polyverse store and at distributor Plugin Boutique.
