Universal Audio has announced the impending release of the Precision K-Stereo Ambience Recovery Plug-In for the UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform and Apollo Audio Interface. Created by Universal Audio in collaboration with famed mastering engineer Bob Katz, they tell us that the K-Stereo Ambience Recovery plug-in extracts ambient cues from source recordings -- allowing users to precisely enhance the stereo depth and imaging of mixes without unnatural artifacts. "The K-Stereo plug-in gives mastering engineers an easy, organic-sounding solution for excessively small mixes or mixes that need more space and depth -- from classical to jazz, rock, or hip-hop," said Bob Katz. "Because we're effectively 'pulling out' the ambience that's already in the recording, the results sound much more natural. I'm happy to be working with UA to bring K-Stereo to the UAD platform."
Designed for critical 2-track mastering or post-production applications, the K-Stereo plug-in offers a "do-no-harm" approach to adding depth and width to busy or narrow-sounding mixes. Using elements of the Haas effect and other psychoacoustic principles, the plug-in transparently enhances existing ambience and early reflections without adding artificial reverb or changing the ratio of center elements to side elements.
Precision K-Stereo Ambience Recovery Plug-In Features:
  • Unique ambience recovery and stereo processing tool, created and patented by famed mastering engineer Bob Katz
  • Extracts ambient cues from the source material, naturally adding depth and width to the stereo field
  • Perfect for fixing busy or "narrow" mixes at the mastering stage
  • 3-band Ambience Filter EQ for further shaping the effect
  • Mid/Side gain controls available to adjust the center-to-side balance
  • Left/Right Gain controls for final stereo image balancing and leveling
  • Custom user presets created by Bob Katz
Pricing and Availability:
Available as part of the upcoming UAD Software v6.3.2 release, scheduled for early November, the Precision K-Stereo Ambience Recovery Plug-In will be available for $199 US via UA's Online Store. More information:
