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 trackback to the mix should always be your number one choice, fiddle with phase during mastering will always have consequences!

Example of situations where Leaky can be useful:

  • Some instrument or part of a mix is out of phase, both while mixing or mastering
  • Leak the diff/side into the sum/mid to enhance the reverb when listening in mono
  • Most of the atmosphere of the track is placed in the side and get lost while in mono.
  • Upmix mono content to stereo
  • Lift back some of the choir to the center channel without losing width
