Stereo Width w/ The Haas Effect
New tutorial from Propellerhead
This week I’m going to show you one of the most tried and true methods we have to add stereo width and depth to our mixes: The Haas Affect.
Named after Dr. Helmut Haas for his early research into the effect, the Haas Effect essentially uses short delays to fool your brain into perceiving a stereo sound from a mono source. In mixing we can exploit your brain’s gullibility to carve out wide stereo fields and provide our mixes enough room for center elements like lead vocals or bass guitar.
I’ve made a combinator patch that accompanies this tutorial and it can be downloaded here:
