...If you have ever had the pleasure of visiting a well-appointed wood shop, you'll encounter specialized tools that allow a master craftsman to handle special requests. Mastering engineers are in a similar situation. Sometimes there are requirements that can't be fudged or simulated. The proper tool is necessary. The K-Stereo plug-in is such a tool. This is not a process that you should use on every song, but when you need it, there is nothing that comes close to sounding like the K-Stereo.

...Summary: Once again one has to declare Algorithmix fulsome praise for creating a professional High-End tool. K-Stereo is a plug-in that works subtle and nearly unnoticeable in the background and when applied properly is missed only when it's deactivated. The excellent sounding plug-in is not a brute-force sound deforming tool, but more a sound polisher which primarily is intended for mastering and belongs into the trained hands of professionals. The price-performance ratio compared to current available hardware solutions is outstanding.

...Conclusion: K-Stereo is a dream come true for many mastering engineers who desired an easy-to-use and much more affordable version of the unique algorithm from Bob Katz.
K-Stereo occupies a not so small market niche: Who ever is interested in the improvement of the space definition or the depth of his productions, should take a look and of course listen to this plug-in. Acoustic recordings and pure computer productions in particular benefit most. The algorithm is perfectly suited for glueing together a demo or to add the dot on the i to the spatiality of an already very good recording. Without introducing any sound of its own, K-Stereo accelerates the mastering and/or compilation process significantly avoiding a time-consuming ambience and early-reflection search with out-board gear. Like any other mastering tool K-Stereo won't work on every track, but if applied properly it can enhance the imaging and the three-dimensionality of the track in a very subtle manner.
