That's an interesting approach of using the Blackbox on the Master.
Different harmonics (Pentode vs Triode) on side/mid for more spaciousness (I don't really like the term "3D depth" ;)). Also the LP for the lower mids and the HP for everything above makes sense.

Wow. I tried the approach on some Polysix (Vst) synth chords and all I can say is that I can never go back.

Anyone else getting a "click" when the audio starts using this? I'm on Studio One 5.2.

Getting some weird zipper / laser sounds in Bitwig when adjusting paramètres and upon render.

No problem here in Reaper, no clicks nor ziper/laser sounds.

If you also run into the parameter linking issue (on PC with the Alt-Key):
This is a confirmed bug and was fixed with the latest update (version 1.0.1). So install the newest version from your PA account

Especially in M/S mode it is important that the levels are correct, otherwise the opposite can happen, e.g. the stereo width is reduced. Linking the parameters is therefore very helpful.

$69.99 offer for original HG2 owners :nutter:
Is it going to stay at that price even after the intro price for everyone else is over? (last day today)

Yes. All 'upgrade offers' that I have (for other PA plugins) never changed from the 'original' price offer. For me, it's better to wait for a promotion within 1 to 2 years and buy it cheaper than their 'upgrade offer'.
Beware! The software discussed in this topic has unacceptable aliasing at -386dBTP but it can be fixed by changing the sample rate to 12Bit

Thanks that's what I hoped - it means I can at least wait till I get my next voucher, if not longer

Really worked for that song.

Is that really what they call 'jazz' these days? :D
