Dynamic Stereo Width Maximizer

SideMinder Max - the most advanced version of the SideMinder Dynamic Stereo Width Maximizer plugins. The SideMinder plugins are dynamic stereo width maximizers that can widen a stereo signal to the max while preventing "over widening" that can degrade mono compatibility.

SideMinder Max is a spectral-based processor that divides the audio into thousands of frequency bands and applies the SideMinder width maximization process to each band. SideMinder Max's band separation filters are all linear phase to preserve the source audio transients for the cleanest and best-sounding processing. SideMinder Max is designed to be fast and easy to set up while providing excellent results. Four Width Contour controls allow shaping the stereo width across the audio spectrum while a single Master Width control adjusts the overall effect.

SideMinder Max can be used on:

  • Individual tracks/instruments
  • Stereo group buses
  • Stereo Master buses

SideMinder Max can be used for:

  • Mixing
  • Mastering
  • Video Audio Post Production

What do the SideMinder plugins actually do?

In the same way that compressors and limiters enhance and control the Amplitude of audio signals the SideMinder plugins enhance and control the Width of stereo signals. For example, pushing up the Width control on the SideMinder plugins is like pushing up the drive control into a limiter. And in the same way that a peak limiter prevents amplitude "overs" the SideMinder plugins prevent WIDTH "overs" where mono compatibility becomes reduced.

This is not the same thing as mid/side compression which works on the absolute Amplitudes of the mid/side signals. SideMinder works on the relative Ratios of the mid/side signals while leaving the amplitude of the stereo signal relatively untouched. This effect cannot be achieved using typical mid/side compression!
