Leapwing Audio StageOne: stereo width & depth enhancement

Posted on: Thursday 10th of January 2019

“We have noticed that while mixing, producers and engineers want ultimate control over the width and depth of each of the instruments,” said Robin Reumers, Co-founder of Leapwing Audio. “We spent many months in R&D developing a transparent method to change the width and depth perception of a stereo recording, even moving sources outside of the speakers, and give your music more natural depth. All this with a beautiful retina design and an intuitive interface.”

In addition to depth and width alterations, users can also access mono spread, which gives the ability to upmix mono signals to stereo. Ideal for mono sources that should be bigger than a static point source, mono spread can also be used to increase the size of the phantom center in stereo recordings.

StageOne has been designed to give producers and engineers intuitive control over the perceived dimensions of the stereo soundstage; stretching width and adding depth to any mono or stereo signal. The plugin gives access to a novel algorithm to change the width of existing stereo content, without compromising mono compatibility. Using the same tool, producers and engineers have the ability to add natural depth to recordings, with their unique and innovative directionally optimised reflections.

Leapwing Audio StageOne is now available for €199, $199 or £179, supporting both Windows and MacOS in VST2, VST3, AU, and AAX plug-in formats.

“We are encouraging everyone to consider this opportunity to have ultimate control over your soundstage.” said Reumers. “We are including a 30-day free trial, so you can check out our new tool and decide if it is what you need.”
