I got an email from Izotope inviiting me to download the Ozone Imager plug-in for free. I liked the price, so I did so. There are no instructions, so I haven’t a clue what I’m doing. There are basically two controls, each using a slider - Width, which goes from -100 to +100 and Stereoizer, which goes from 1 to 20. Moving the width slider up does seem to produce a fuller sound through the headphones. I don’t notice any difference when I move the Stereoizer slider. Does anyone with a bit more technical expertise than me know what a Stereoizer is and how I could use this plug-in? I have a feeling it could be a big help if I knew what it actually did.

If you want to get it, the link is here: https://www.izotope.com/en/products/master-and-deliver/ozone-imager.html

Hi Gavin,

I try to help with my little english. With an “Imager” it is possible to spread every intrument around in the stereopanorama :). Got it?
Ya know, it´s like in an orchestra. Drums and Bass should be placed in the Center, Strings right, Guitar left and so on. An Imager can help you to achieve a “wider mix” - but it has to be used on every single Instrument :)

Overall, Izotope offers some good, Basic, free plug ins. Check out the “Izotope Vinyl”. It adds Vinyl sound, dust and so on to the recording which is pretty nice.

“Neutrino” is the little brother of “Neutron”, it help´s to find a better “spot” in the mix ... if you feel so, get all 3 of them

...every once in a while, I get in the mood or so…and start to play..

Hi Gav, Something very similar is included in WaveLab….. it adds a very wide angle atmosphere
to your recording by accentuating high end stereo signals far left n right, and adding a slight
delay to bass signals more in the center. It’s real easy to over-do it though. If you really want
to hear what it does you need two very simple recordings. One of a mono instrument centered,
acoustic guitar for example without any effects…. and a stereo recording of two different
instruments left n right playing the same parts, guitar n piano for example; again without
effects. Then you’ll see that too much “stereoizer” will actually ruin the natural separation of
your stereo recording but will add width to your mono recording :)
