No special spacial enhancement was applied. I had experimented with wideners early in the mixing but decided against it. The track uses 50 loops so there is a lot of layering going on, and the width is thanks to a combination of simply setting a place for each loop within the stereo field, and any stereo field work that Perimeter built into the loops themselves.
Most of the percussion layers were sent to an FX channel with SSL Drumstrip on it. One or two tracks used SSL Bus Compressor as an insert. More melodic parts used a combination of SSL X-Verb for inserts plus PSP Vintage Warmer 2 as an FX channel. On the master I had Vintage Warmer 2 again, along with a touch of high end enhancement from Prosoniq Dynasone.
Izotope RX2 was used only to clean up clicks that were created when I sloppily chopped up and reversed some loops.
That's it...no other effects were applied and I didn't even do any extra EQing. Earlier attempts at the mix had a bunch of stuff on it and extra EQ to help tame some frequency ranges, but when I went back to redo the mix I found that none of that was needed if I put more attention into improving the basic mix and applied the right processing to each individual track (instead of throwing too much on the final mix, like I usually do...because I tend to be lazy).
