- Gain, and individual left and right channel gains, mutes.
- Pan and phase inversion of either channel.
- Width control, along with separate mid and side gain sliders and mutes.
- Maximally flat minimal phase high and low pass 12db/octave filtering.
- Optional hard and soft clipping at 0db.
- Everything is fully automatable with sensible parameter ranges/scaling.
