Leaky2

Leaky2 will let you leak, move or replace part of the spectrum from the left, right, sum (mid) or difference (side) to a choice of the same. Leaky and Leaky2 were Initially made to handle phase cancelation problems while mastering but there are other uses too. REMEMBER: Taking the track back to the mix should be your number one choice, tricks like this should not be used if not absolutely necessary!

Example of situations when to use it:

  •  If the vocals (or a solo instrument) in a track feels to dry in mono because most of the reverb exists in the side channel.
  • The track is mixed with an abused Voodoo Stereo-imager and that phat synth lead before the drop disappears in mono.
  • Most of the atmosphere of the whole track is placed in the side and totally get lost while in mono.
  • The bass is out of phase
