All new – SLVR Spreader

May 17, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized 

SLVR Spreader is a state-of-the-art stereo widener suitable for mixing and mastering. It combines different stereo imaging technologies, letting you apply ample amounts of widening without weakening the overall sound. Use it on individual tracks like vocals, on group tracks like drums, and all the way to the final master.

Widening without Weakening

Most stereo wideners work by increasing the level of the side signal against the mid or center signal (often referred to as mid-side imaging). This results in a wider sound but it also weakens everything in the center section (e.g. Bass, Kick, Vocals, Snare). The problem is that you can’t just bring up the center level, as that will simply cancel out the widening, which brings you back to square one.

With SLVR Spreader, you can apply as much widening as you want, as it lets you bring back important center signals lost in the widening. It does this by carefully screening out which parts of the center are being widened and protecting those signals. It also splits the center into 3 bands so that you can restore only the affected frequencies.

Three Powerful Modes

Wide mode uses a mid-side algorithm for widening the signal. This is suitable for stereo recordings, group tracks, and mastering.

Delay mode spreads the signal’s frequencies across the stereo image and applies minute amounts of delay to emphasize the stereo effect. This can be used to fatten ambient sounds like vocals and pads.

Shuffle mode interleaves the signal’s frequencies and spreads them across the stereo image. While the stereo effect is less pronounced in this mode, it can help the signal cut-through a busy mix without introducing artifacts or phase issues.

3 Channel Meters

SLVR Spreader has separate meters for Left, Center, and Right channels, allowing you to apply just the right amount of widening to the signal. For best results, increase the Spread fader until the Center peak is at the same level as or just above the Left and Right peaks.
