Stereoizer from NuGen Audio is a stereo width plug-in with a clear difference: your mix will still sound great in mono. Add natural sounding width and depth to any recording—mono or stereo—leaving the character of the source intact, or go super wide. Achieve a more coherent sound with polish and spatial balance, without adding artificial reverb, chorusing or delay. Stereoizer offers total mono compatibility and no unwanted artifacts. Each of Stereoizer's algorithms adapts the characteristics of your audio using techniques based on the way the human ear perceives width. The IID (Interaural Intensity Difference), ITD (Interaural Time Difference) and Linear Width algorithms work independently of each other, giving you maximum flexibility. For more lively adjustments, use the IID and ITD controls; the Linear Width control is more subtle and, crucially, leaves the 'centre space' of your mix untouched.

Highly Mono Compatible
Mono compatibility is easily overlooked, but is as important now as it has ever been. Many club and PA sound systems are still set up for mono playback, and the majority of portable radios, smartphones and many TV sets are mono. Stereoizer does not add any artificial reverberation, which means no disruptive artifacts such as doubling/chorusing effects or phase cancellation affecting your mono signal. The 'Collapse output to mono' option allows you to check mono compatibility on the fly for your own peace of mind.

For Mixing and Sound Design
Stereoizer can be used to introduce width to mono recordings or to expand a narrow stereo mix. It can add richness and gloss to your recordings, without having to resort to overcooked heavy EQ and/or compression. Use Stereoizer to add finesse by introducing natural-sounding width, or zone in and enhance specific frequencies, all without upsetting the inherent balance of the sound.

For Post Production and Restoration
Stereoizer is a gift for subtle enhancement of ambience sounds, clearing space for dialog in the centre or even injecting stereo liveliness into formerly mono recordings. Whether restoring old recordings or optimizing new recordings for louder playback, Stereoizer allows for natural-sounding extrapolation of your existing stereo image. This can be used to re-introduce natural ambience which may have been lost during other stages of the production process.
