What creates width in a mix?

What creates width in a mix?

– key elements panned hard left and right.

– a strong sense of “center” channel comprised of kick, snare, and bass.

– low end material panned to the center from 700hz and below.

– stereo movement from less wide to wide. For example, choruses get wider than verses.

– a juxtaposition of stereo and mono ideas.

– delays used over reverbs

– two mono delays, or two mono reverbs instead of stereo delays and reverbs

– doubled rhythm instruments panned hard left and right, but not all of the time throughout the song.

– A GREAT ARRANGEMENT
