Spreader LC is a stereo widener that lets you enhance and expand the stereo image while protecting center-positioned audio.
Spreader has two ways of widening the sound: mid-side and phase-shift.
Mid-Side mode (cyan button) separates the center from the sides and adjusts their levels. This is ideal for group tracks, stereo sounds, and for mastering. To protect center-positioned sounds from going weak, use the three 'C' faders to bring important sounds back into the mix.
Phase-Shift mode (purple button) adds minute amounts of delay to some parts of the signal to 'fatten' the sound. Instead of simply adding delay to one channel, it spreads frequencies across the stereo field and strategically adds delay only to certain parts. This enhances the sound while generating almost no phase-related artifacts. Useful for fattening mono sources.

This is really good plugin!
I was looking for a long time for an effect, that could easily spread vocals recorded in mono and it seems, that I found one.
I don't tell you, that SLVR Spreader is the best stereo expander or enhancer and works great with any situation, but in this price range has no competition (intro price is only 14$).
Mildon also earlier released Vocal Spread (3$), but SLVR Spreader is much much better.
There's no manual included in .zip file (maybe would be useful for someone) but I think, that you don't need it.
GUI is nice, clean and looks like "older brothers" from Provoc Series Bundle. There are three modes for widening the signal. I will mostly use "Delay mode" for vocals but there's also "Wide mode" for group tracks or mastering and "Shuffle mode". On the left side you can see channel meters showing amount of widening to the signal.
Thank you, Mildon!Read more
