Discover 5 Techniques to Make Any of Your Track’s Elements Wider

Over the years, I’ve found a lot of ways to make your track’s elements wider, but today I’m sharing with you my top 5.

Making your elements wider is important when trying to make space within your mix for certain elements to shine through. For example, it may not be interesting to have your main vocal on the sides, but it could be amazing to have background vocals on the side. Therefore, we need to understand how we can make our elements, especially mono elements, wider.

Within these five, only one of them will require you to buy an external plugin called Microshift from Soundtoys. Other than that, you can do all these techniques with the free plugin from Polyverse ‘Wider’ and native VSTs from your DAW. Both have a special place in my top 10 VSTs, which you can check in this post.

You can watch these techniques being displayed in the video below:

I’ve also shared in this video below why I love Wider and why you should be aware of technique #2, the Haas Effect. Watch in the video below:

I hope you’ve learned something from this post. Let me know in the comments below which of these techniques will you use first!
