    I'm writing this review to answer the question: Why should I spend $99 on this when I can get Wider for free? Wider pings the panning position of the signal with each note very obnoxiously. While I still visually notice just a bit of gradual sway between left and right peak levels when I push the widening knob far, it's not jarring at all to the ear. You get a little bit of analogue style coloration when you apply this plugin but in all cases so far, it only improves the tonality. If you have orchestral libraries, this plugin is a must because the vast majority of them have phasing and mono-compatibility issues. Narrow the stereo field as much as necessary with free Ozone Imager, then widen it back up with impunity with this plugin. Until VST library makers make proper mic positioning a priority, this will be your go-to plug in.

    There are many good mono to Stereo Plugins out there, but nothing feels like bx_stereomaker, because you can really make a mono source come to populate the stereofield in a unique & lively way, and stay in phase! Use it a ton!

    VERY interesting tool for almost any meldodic element like guitar, synth, even vocals, if you use it wisely and not overdo it. I am just a recording hobby musician, no pro, but, man, this thing is powerful and adds dimension and depth, a very special thickness, something I cannot think of how to achieve another way. Maybe a pro can, but on the other hand, witch this little army knife it is just a few clicks with tremendous effect. Recommended!

    It is briljant. It changes a mono signal to a full, living stereo sound.
    You will absolutely purchase this plug-in after 30 seconds of demoing. Great results can be achieved with only a few mouse clicks.
    Old fashioned, boring mono samples are over now.

    Excellent for synths and sample based instruments which are sometimes difficult to place in a mix. Very easy to use and very easy to hear the magic it does!
  • Use it carefully!

    Another great kind of M/S stereo field manipulation processor, much in the vein of the ShredSpread.
    Can make most mono material sound immediately more interesting.
    Just use it sparingly so you don't get into trouble.
    A word of advice: when you think you got it just right, pull it down a notch or two. You'll thank me later...

    Trying to get a little more depth into recordings of a newsreader, this plugin saved the day. It made everything fit perfectly together after 20 seconds of adjusting. You only know that you needed it, when you try it.

    A cool little plugin.
    You're always told to learn your stock plugins before buying new. Well, I doubt if your stock can allow you where in the spectrum the stereo spread starts. It's nice to have lush pads, with a wide stereo spread, and not have to worry about phase issues in the bass.

    Very naturally sounding plugin. Great for guitars and synth (for vocals as well). One of the best plug for "mono to stereo job".
    I use it in almost every mix. Good work.
