I'm curious how often and how much experienced ME's use "stereo widening." I have a few plug-ins that can create the effect but after getting over the initial dazzle, I start noticing the artifacts and the affect on the balance. I usually wind up taking them off. Today I tried DMG Duality on a track and just gave it a smidgen of widening. I like it so far. The artifacts are minimal and it's removing a little low end mud. The lows and low-mids sound a little tighter. And yes, the whole mix sounds a little wider... Thoughts?
