United Plugins Expanse 3D
Psychoacoustic Widener Plugin
The world is not flat neither should your music be. Expanse 3D, JMG Sound's space enhancer, takes advantage of the most recent (and futuristic) knowledge of psychoacoustic effects to help your tracks explode into all three dimensions. This 3Dimension expander will make your sounds deeper, wider, and bigger.
Expanse achieves the 3D feel using a combination of analogue type saturation, spectral phase offsetting, re-synthesis, intricate delay networks and more. It can be used for mixing, mastering and sound design, it can help glue sounds together and create contrast and definition between sounds in a mix.
The advanced spectral phase processer creates super width while remaining natural and transparent. It keeps bass tight, reduces stereo from the sub and gets progressively wider to the high end. It is fully mono-compatible, preserves position focus and can generate stereo from mono.
Add definition and punch to the front and extend the back to get a deeper sound. Expanse 3D uses a complex algorithm of delay networks with channel and phase processing to enhance the perception of depth and add space. It can be used to add dynamic contrast between separate sounds and glue multiple elements together for a more cohesive mix.
Make your sounds larger than life by extending out the high and low ends. Unlike traditional EQ that boosts existing frequencies, Expanse 3D generates additional harmonics to give you deeper bass and brighter treble. It greatly improves the perception of low frequencies on speakers less able to produce them and adds controlled power and punch to larger systems.
Each dimension enhancer implements finely tuned saturation in its processing. It is modeled on analog distortion, capturing all of the nuances, such as harmonic distribution, dynamic consistency, non-linear randomness, and anti-aliasing algorithms to add beautifully rich and warm color.
All the Expanse 3D processes are applied to the appropriate frequency ranges using high-quality filters. These filters cause zero phase shift which makes them suitable for mastering and also does not have any latency.
Enhance Your Master
Using Expanse 3D subtly can greatly improve the overall impact and energy of the master, making it sound bigger and more exciting. The widener is sympathetic to each frequency, preserves the focus of the stereo position and is fully mono-compatible. Up to 8 times oversampling provides the highest quality saturation to add analogue colour, while the additional harmonics help add clarity. The whole mix gently becomes more cohesive as the parts share a common space. All of this can be perfectly balanced while retaining the original loudness using the auto gain function.
Glue Your Mix
The depth processor is useful for gluing a mix together as it adds a common space that all the mix elements share, it also, of course, adds depth. When used subtly, this can really make a huge difference to a full mix. There is also an auto gain switch, so you can make changes without changing the loudness.
Define Your Tracks
Expanse 3D can be used to create contrast between elements in your music by positioning them in the 3D space. You can widen two sounds with one inverted to separate them, create dynamic depth between deep & shallow and brighten sounds to make them stand out from the crowd. All of this helps to further define the individuality of each part, which makes up a complete, dynamic, and full-sounding mix.
Hassle-Free Software Protection
No iLok, no dongle nor internet access is required for activation. Our software uses license files to activate your software. You can freely use the purchased software on all your computers as long as you are the user.
64-Bit Audio Quality at Any Sampling Rate
The plugin provides the maximum audio quality you can get. It uses internal 64-bit audio processing and can handle any sampling rate. 192 kHz or even higher.
The intelligent way our plugins manage bypassing ensures that you don't get any clicks or harmful noises when automating the parameter. It also compensates for latency ensuring that the bypass states are perfectly in sync with each other.
Intelligent Sleep on Silence
This plugin intelligently detects whether it makes sense to perform processing at all. And if not, it temporarily turns on sleep mode. In such a state, it requires virtually no CPU at all saves the computing sources for other processes.
