Ayo! If your beats lack spacial imaging, then you need to check for Stage. It will give your samples that icing on the cake...
Did you think your sonic box was filled?
It was not!...cause Stage just made your box bigger.
Stage, breathe air and space into my programmed drums in a way a reverb can not do. Sound and feel a little more like real drums. Also great on my rock guitar bus and even on my mix bus.
You don´t need to tweak, just use it on default on your drum bus and it will stay there engaged. My tip is to use a monomaker after it, to make sure the low end information stays in center. Great Plugin!
I'm usually a S1 user but after watching a youtube video of the fiedler audio plugin I didn't even demo it. I purchased it. I love the added control over the audio field. The modulation is priceless. I drop it on a Aux in Logic and buss in what I want wide and I'm fine. Sometimes I'll put it on the channel but busing it allows me to audition how I want to use it. My living is through music creation. I have over 20 placements in TV and film A Grammy nomination with the Pussycat dolls, composer on the Allen Iverson documentary "IVERSON", toured with Lauryn Hill, Played with Eric Benet, Sly Stone, George Clinton and played on a Beyonce track (Still In Love). Quality gear and skill is a must. I trust Plugin Alliance to deliver. My most used plugins are from Plugin Alliance. I'm glad I purchased this Imager. I'm currently working on a film. I say get it!
So far, I've tried it only a little, but it's really great.
It really helps me creating a nice stereo spread without sounding artificial.
Its GUI is absolutely user-friendly.
All in all very well done!
Very nice when using smooth. Going extreme is not very useful for me... It's different from other spatial effect.
This is a complex plug in that can really alter your stereo track/mix. I recently used it on a mastering session where I wanted more of a stereo spread. The track was also a little dry and lacked depth. A little goes a long way with this plug in. Even the default setting when opening Stage is effective. I dialed back the percentage of effect. It's easy to mute the effect to hear what you are adding to the sound.
As an old school Musician who likes to keep the mix simple, acoustic guitars, 12 string Ricks & Tele's for country-folk imaging I like things that enhance the background or backdrop , create a Wall if you will, this Plugin does that..
i really love this plugin!
High quality and versatile chorus/flanger effect that can work very subtle to enhance the stereo image or to add movement to a sound without mono compatibility issues. It replaced all of my previous chorus and flanger plugins at once.
This Plugin is a truly versatile. A great tools for mastering, previews mix and restoration mono tracks (old records, old MONO instruments, etc). You can be highly creative with it and controllably imaginative in your mixing.
