I need the poor man's Waves Stereo enhancer- Any ideas?

    My mix sounds good, but is a bit wide. Yes, I could fiddle and pull each track more towards the center, but I understand there are plug ins like the S1 that can pull the mix to the center, i.e., folding everything in proportion, right down to mono if need be. I need a plug in like this, but on a budget.

    Are there any other options out there?

    A decent Mid Side decoder/encoder can accomplish some of this. Better yet is to mix it correctly from the beginning :wink:

    Thanks. I had been on a pretty good run of successful downloads, but I cannot seem to get it to show up in Cubase. I downloaded it, unpacked it, and copied the dll file into my VST folder, like I have done for all of my other VST plug ins, but it just does not show up. I will keep on the hunt for something else.

    Sometimes you have to refresh your VST folder from within the DAW. I'm not sure about Cubase but it has happened to me in all four of my DAW's before regardless of where I save the dll.

    Hueseph, thanks for pointing out the Flux stuff. I hadn't seen those before.

    Thanks for the link to that interesting program, but I could not get it to work either. I mean the download appeared to work, but I cannot find any dll. file anywhere. It's strange, because I have managed to download many free plug ins, without difficulty. Now I am having a spell of problems. I will keep working on it though.

    Check out page 167 in the pdf manual. It talks about updating the VST folder.

    Thanks to both of you. Indeed, I just got it working, and it works as described.
