Module Details

  • 1. Module 1: Panning and the Utility Effect
    Beginning with an explanation of what the stereo width of a signal is, this module then goes on to demonstrate how panning can be used to achieve a wider signal. The lesson also shows how the utility effect can be used to gain greater control over mid and side signals.
  • 2. Module 2: Delay
    This lesson shows how simple delay, ping pong delay, and filter delay can all be used to widen a signal.
  • 3. Module 3: Chorus
    This lesson shows how the chorus effect can be used to generate stereo width, and how this can be shaped by a filter to clean up the mix.
  • 4. Module 4: Reverb
    The module begins with a guide on using utility to check the processing on samples. Then, Live's reverb effect is explored, with each parameter's effect on the stereo width of a signal clearly demonstrated.
  • 5. Module 5: Detuning
    The effect of detuning on stereo width is explored in detail, and there is a guide on detuning a synth patch to thicken it, as well some tips on detuning a vocal sample to widen it.

    This lesson teaches how to EQ left and right, and mid and side signals differently to increase the width of a signal.
