is widely regarded as one of the most relevant for me to work on mastering plugins. I watched for a long time and experimented with this plugin. now bought. and none of the songs from my studio is complete without a K-Stereo Ambience Recovery Plug-In! Thanks Bob Katz!) UAD thanks!) believe in YOU! Happy New Year!
When I was in college (20 years ago), I attended a lecture with engineer Francis Buckley, who said that he has never and would never run a signal through a piece of gear which processed a signal in a way he couldn't easily explain to someone or at least that he understood completely… yeah, to hell with that. While I don't know exactly what this does, I really, really like what it does (mixes get wider, clearer, more detailed and focused). It doesn't work on every mix I've done but it has brought it's fairy dust like magic to enough of them to more than justify it's cost. Very well done.
a really senseful Plug-In! It gives you the possibility to work with the space and the stereo-soundstage - and we all know that Bob Katz knows what he's doing :-)
I liked it immediately, thanks for the evaluation! Bernie, obaxe-music, austria
This little beauty is magic you dont even know its there till you bypass it!
I call it ...........SPECIAL KAY
This is now my go to widener. My vocal tracks are almost always given some width and sparkle using this beautifully subtle plugin.
Some doublers and spatial plugin's really loose the focus for some program material, but this keeps everything front and centre, and just adds beautiful detail behind it, creating a sense of early reflections or space.
Very classy plugin that I'm finding more uses for every day.
The K-Stereo is really effective in defining a master's depth and width, without compromising the weight of elements anchoring the middle and front of your mix. It is nice to be able to enhance or control the 3D effect of a mix, without any of the nasty phasing or "whole-in-the-middle" artefacts. The ambience EQ is another welcome tool, as is the separate balance control of middle and sides, making this my go-to stereo processor of the era.
I always had in mind that what if I had a tool that really
Make the image of my mix to be in its place
It's my biggest problem when I want all my ideas
To fit perfect but I didn't have anything to support that
This tool is one of its kind since I had never had results
With any of the other tools.
It will give you the inside of the mix without the use of a reverb
That's amazing .
That's what uad is all about
After downloading the K-Stereo and started to use it I knew immediately that this is a totally different of anything else iv tried before it just gives you that width and depth you need with such a simplicity way to work with and also sound amazing every plugin I tried before was just meeting things up and the K-Stereo just do it right with no overtones phase problems and all kind of those problems you get when you work on M/S. super recommended !!!
K-Stereo is a well-known algorithm from Bob Katz.The Algorithmix sells it very expensive for the Windows platform.Some very expensive hardware gears are used K-Stereo.
as they say, "knock and open to you".UA opened this doors for us!!!
K-S is not only mastering feature,it,s a great mixing tool from snare to guitar group,for everything.Sound with a K-Stereo more detailed,more separate, and yet more connected.
Apply it in your multitrack master session on one channel(for example) and you do not lose a good center and get the "expensive" air.
I liked it, I bought K-Stereo on the second day of trial.
This is a good job UA, but competitors are not asleep. ;-)
I have always admired Bob Katz and his precise knowledge.
The K-system plug where available once for PC only from another company, I am on MAC!
So when I heard the rumors about the K-Stereo, I hoped it did what it promised.
I did much more!
I have now used it in every Mastering project since it arrived, it is in my default setup.
A must have!
Just bought it ! The song i'm mixing has linear programmed beats and up the middle vocals. panning and reverb aside it still sounded dense and narrow. Simply putting the K -stereo on the master fader more than did the trick. In fact I have always struggled to get my mixes More 3D, wider, deeper etc. Rock, Pop or whatever. I have used the manual style hass effect a million times. ( sample delay's this, stereo that ) But this plugin packages it all up for you with some noticeable added magic. helping to achieve that all encompassing mix. and i'm just scratching the surface, can't wait to get more familiar.
I was really skeptical about this plug in and what it could do. So after a few sessions with the demo I found out I could not live without it. This plug in really bring out the best in my mixes really took them to new heights. I use it on my mastering jobs this is a must plug in for any sound engineer highly recommended.
I just used this on a acoustic guitar track and on backing vocals. Both were sounding too narrow how they were recorded.
The K-Stereo plug-in added a stereo image to it with amazing clarity and transparency while leaving the signal itself completely untouched and uncolored.
Also the phase of the mix wasn't harmed, it kept it fully mono compatible.
I already like this plug-in a lot.
Damn, what a good processor Plug.
I could write, it makes your signal wider, deeper, brighter etc.
But words can't described it.
It's THE new monster from UAD.
This is a unique processor, mostly useful for mastering.
I haven't tried the UAD version, but I've had the Algo... version for 4 years and use it on 50% of my Mastering jobs. Considering the great job UA does with their emulations and the price of the competition's version (about 5 x), this is a bargain.
The K makes mixes bigger, wider and fuller without adding a new reverb. It can really put a final sheen on a good mix, bringing it up another level. It also can adjust the Mid and Side levels.
That said, if the reverb in the mix is bad, the K will only enhance the bad reverb. It extracts and enhances already present ambience. You need good ambience to start with; then you will have a big smile on your face!
Excelente plug ins
Me gusta como abre los espacios y recupera los ambientes.
En mastering es una herramienta vital
Hatte echt gedacht das ich dieses Plug-In nicht brauche. In meiner Weihnachts-Produktion hatte ich es Testweise eingesetzt und versucht mit anderen Tricks den Effekt nachzubauen. Wenn dann der Mono-Check kam, brach nur der Sound beim K-Stereo Ambience Recorvery Plug-In nicht zusammen. Einfach unglaublich. Dieses Tool ist unverzichtbar.
Respekt !!! - ganz grosses Kino.
Without doubt the best regenerative atmosphere, very good job Universal Audio,
This plugin makes good mixes better. It makes everything more transparent than
before. I began to use it during mixing and mastering.
Vraiment excellent pour élargir la stéréo.... attention cependant à ne pas "en rajouter" ( comme tous les effets ! ) .... Les préselections de réglages sont à utiliser avec discernement faute de quoi l'image se fait alors moins précise !
Bref, un bel outil quasiment indispensable !
