Polyverse Music and Infected Mushroom have introduced Wider for iPhone and iPad, a free stereo spreading effect.
Wider can be used to increase the stereo image of any signal up to 200% of full stereo for an extra wide, exaggerated effect. However, Wider is completely “mono-compatible,” meaning that any signal that has been extended will always remain in phase with itself, even if summed to mono.
Wider’s all-pass and comb filtering algorithm spreads signals evenly so that no phase issues occur. The affected signal cancels itself out when summed to mono, rendering the original signal unaffected.
Wider is available in AUv3 format, making it compatible with a variety of host applications, including Garageband, FL Studio, Steinberg Cubasis and more. Minimum requirements are iOS 10.0.

Wider is available now as a free download on the App Store.
