MidSider is made to be used in Reaper, however, it should work in any DAW that supports a single track to handle at least 8 channels.
MidSider3 will give any plugin mid-side processing capabilities. With this version, it will also give you the ability to use the left or the right channel as well as a regular stereo operation to check how it will sound if processed normally without the need of leaving the plugin.
Noisebud Skyline is an easy-to-use multi-band stereo image editor for mastering, but, it works amazingly on single instruments during mixing too.
You can easily enhance or create depth in a track with the quick and easily accessible controls and you don’t have to worry that you push it too hard since whatever you do with Skyline you can’t break the mono-compatibility. Skyline consists of three main controls, Spread, Pan and Width. ‘Spread’ will either enhance the ambiance by using the information in the difference channel and spread it out in the stereo-field, or use the information from the sum-channel and spread that out in the stereo-field. The latter is great if you want to up-mix a mono-file to stereo. ‘Pan’ will pan the audio in the selected band and ‘Width’ will either boost the sum or the difference by 2dB without touching the other channel. Watch the video, preferable with headphones to get an idea of this little gem.

Steijing is a simple, yet powerful, plugin to handle the stereo image while mastering.
New in version 2:
We added a module to auto adjust the balance between the left and the right channel, we recommend not to go above the green mark other than to hear what the plugin is doing. And, use headphones to be able to better hear the effect.

A switchable HP filter to the Difference channel in the Sum/Diff module.
