Want a free stereo imaging plugin for your DAW? Ozone Imager gets you the most bang for the buck! Some of the best mixing engineers in the world swear by Ozone’s mastering plugins. They have a stellar reputation for a good reason. Ozone Imager is based Ozone’s legendary Imaging technology. This Stereo Imaging Plugin can narrow or widen your stereo image with simple controls, stunning visuals, and incredible sound.
What does a Stereo Imaging Plugin do?
You can add depth and width to mono or narrow mixes in Stereoize Mode for a fuller, wider sound without sacrificing mono compatibility. This Stereo Imaging Plugin works with up to four frequency bands — providing independent control over stereo width by frequency. I often used to breathe new life into drum breaks sampled from vinyl. Or use the plugin to adjust stereo width for your master.
An integrated Vectorscope and Correlation Meter gives you valuable visual feedback for the mastering process, including Polar vectorscope modes and a Stereo Balance meter. It’s great to have immediate and intuitive feedback as you adjust settings to taste.
The Imager actually shows you the width of your mix by frequency visually. Set crossovers and see the effect of stereo imaging adjustments on different parts of the spectrum with Stereo Width Spectrum view or use the Imager to audition your stereo signal for mono compatibility or left/right signal reversal.
