I have a thread going over in the "Mastering" forum that includes some discussions on the BBE Sonic Maiximizer. It was interesting to hear some of the comments that came from the mastering specialists over there. (Dead Link Removed) I love the plug-in myself, but also feel that it is really easy to over-do, especially on the low end frequencies. My understanding is that it boosts the high and low ends, then adds slight delays to these frequencies as well. This is obviously a psycho-acoustic type of processor. What I really like about the BBE is that it seems to add "depth" and a wider stereo spread to my mixes that I just love. I am curious if anyone has any experience with the Waves S1 Stereo Imager? I am wondering if this might be a good alternative to the BBE, considering how I use it?
