How can I make my stereo mix wider?
It’s simple: Take two similar (but slightly different) recordings of a piece of audio, place them on separate tracks, and pan them hard left and right. It will thicken the sound of both, while also making your mix sound larger and expansive.
Should you widen bass?
Finally for width, the coolest thing is to go multiband again for the widening. For bass sounds, we typically want to keep the signal mono below 300-400 Hz. However, above that range it is fair game to generate and push some “difference” with some mid-side widening and some Haas effect.
How can I add stereo width?
- Delay Gratification. The simplest method of increasing the stereo width of a part is to apply a stereo delay, with different delay times on left and right channels.
- Pitch Invasion. A variation on this type of process is to add a little pitch shifting to each side.
- Doubled Up.

Can you pan sub bass?
Always pan the bass center If the bass comes from both stereo speakers, it can be louder than if it only comes from one. Also, in the days of vinyl records, there could be problems with mistracking on playback if the bass was panned all the way to one side.
How can I make my stereo mono compatible?
Create two tracks, and place the same mono audio loop on each one. Pan one track hard left and the other hard right. Invert the phase of one of these using any utility or EQ plugin that has a ‘phase invert’ button; the result is a stereo image that appears incredibly wide.
Should Reese bass be mono?
Most recommend you keep all low-frequency elements in a mix – generally the kick drum, sub bass and other bass elements – completely mono.
What frequency should bass be at?
These aren’t fixed definitions, but typically bass accounts for frequencies between 20 and 300 Hz, mid is 300 Hz to 4 kHz, and treble counts as anything above 4 kHz, very roughly speaking. Frequency Response describes the range of frequencies or musical tones a component can reproduce.
Which bass frequencies should be mono?
As a general rule of thumb, it’s considered common practice to sum anything below 200hz to mono. This means your bass, sub- bass, and kick drum will almost always be summed to mono. Remember, some bass instruments don’t contain only bass frequencies and may have mid or high ends.
What is stereo widening effect?
Stereo widening is an action that basically increases the perceived width of a mix or individual instruments. You can use it on just about any source. However, most professional music producers agree that elements with prominent low-frequency content like kick drums and bass should be mono.
How can I make my guitar sound wide?
A great way to make your guitars sound wider is to pan one guitar all the way to the right, and the other all the way to the left. After this, the number one trick I use to make guitars feel wider is to put reverb on them.
