…And the award for sexiest-looking VST ever goes the UpStereo VST from QuikQuak.
As you’ve probably guessed, UpStereo is a stereo widening plug-in that helps you get that wide, hyped, ‘produced’ sound that seems to be the industry standard these days.
Using the UpStereo is easy as pie: Push the slider from mono to wide and you’ll bring the stereo image out and ‘towards’ the listener.
How does it sound? Pretty darn good. Bottom and top frequencies are boosted and the stereo image seems wider and fatter. But QuikQuak isn’t trying to reinvent the wheel here. There are no fancy controls and nothing to learn, but it sounds good and at the end of the day that’s all that matters.
PROS: Simple operation, great results.
