Stereo Spreading
From recording to playback, through mixing and mastering, each step has an effect on the resulting sound's stereo image. This is done, for instance, by pan settings or by applying different settings onto the left and right output channels of common effects : EQ, Compressor, Echo, Chorus, etc... Yet, StereoMan features all you need to act on a sound's stereo image.

When Mixing.
When mixing, one will often try to create a stereo image out of mono tracks, through the use of special effects (reverb, chorus...). StereoMan can help you to achieve this thanks to its QUASI STEREO filter, cutting up the spectrum into a more or less significant amount of bands (Cutting Up) and interleaving them alternately onto the right and left channels with more or less emphasis (strength).

For Mastering.
One will usually try to control the stereo image of the sound (Stereo Expander) and get power back on the spectrum's low-ends. This is what the "L + R Contour" section is here for. It generates a mono component which is processed through a lowpass filter, and then sends it back to the left and right outputs. This allows you to get sound power back, while keeping some sort of stereo image on medium/high frequencies (these frequencies are not very powerful but they are very useful when rendering stereo).
