Width Knob allows you to quickly and easily adjust the stereo width of your bus or track.

It is a great and simple tool for automating power into your chorus, or anywhere else you might need to adjust the stereo width in an intuitive and fast manner.

Width Knob provides a simple way to create contrast in your mixes, keeping your mixes alive and interesting.

Why A Width Knob?

This is a tool that everyone should have and everyone should use. The real reason I made this plugin was because I became addicted to the stereo width knob provide in Reaper, and it drove me insane every time I had to use another DAW that didn’t have it. Also, Kevin Dyer once suggested a similar idea.

Rather than go on some campaign about how every DAW should have this by default, I figured it was easier to just make a plugin version of this effect and give it to everyone for free.

This plugin is so easy and intuitive to use, yet so powerful that it is really a must have for any workflow.


This is Not a Stereo Widener

In fact, it’s the opposite. This plugin does not add anything that will increase the stereo width of your track. It will only reduce the stereo width. it ranges from -100% to +100%, letting you not only narrow your mixes, but to flip the L/R channels easily and smoothly.


Hot to Use it

Pro-Tools-Expert put together a great video showing how simple this thing is to use.

    I have to agree with the previous reviewer. I can’t hear it do anything. Free is nice though! 😉

    Nice! Similar to the utility plug in Ableton but this could be useful.

    This thing is totally cool!!! It does exactly what it says. I played with a full stereo track, moving it from right to left, both slowly and fast, to achieve amazing movement effects. I can see how I would want to use this on say, a stereo synth track or even a percussion track! It can gradually narrow the width and then SEAMLESSLY it reverse the left-right fields…..amazing how smooth it does it too!!!! ……like silk!!!!! Thanks for making this plugin! Tom M.

    Not possible to install on Win XP, sad…

    Super useful, and free. Sure, I can achieve the same result in Pro Tools with the pan controls, but this is easier. What more could you want?

    To the guy complaining about it not working on Win XP…come on. It’s a 15-year-old operating system. Seriously. It was released in 2001. How can you expect people to still support that? Even Microsoft gave up on it in 2014: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/WindowsForBusiness/end-of-xp-support

    It doesn’t do anything at all as far as i can tell, and I am a QA guy for a DAW company 🙂

    • Did you put it on a stereo track? It’s not going to do anything on a mono track.

    Just went back and read the description again and say that it’s NOT a stereo widener. Disregard my last review

    Like it. It’s free. Tried this yesterday: Used knob to quick flip of sides L/R – R/L on automation track for my mix buss, so my electric guitar tracks changed sides, while my centered bass and vocal stayed put. Enjoyed the effect.
