Sound deeper, wider and bigger!

The world is not flat neither should your music be. Expanse 3D, JMG Sound’s space enhancer, takes advantage of the most recent (and futuristic) knowledge of psychoacoustic effects to help your tracks explode into all three dimensions. This 3Dimension expander will make your sounds deeper, wider and bigger. Or, to sum it up in few words, YOUR MUSIC WILL SOUND SUPERMASSIVE!

Expanse 3D Key Features

Psychoacoustic magic

Expanse achieves the 3D feel using a combination of analogue type saturation, spectral phase offsetting, re-synthesis, intricate delay networks and more. It can be used for mixing, mastering and sound design, it can help glue sounds together and create contrast and definition between sounds in a mix.

Get wider

The advanced spectral phase processer creates super width while remaining natural and transparent. It keeps bass tight, reduces stereo from the sub and gets progressively wider to the high end. It is fully mono-compatible, preserves position focus and can generate stereo from mono.

Get deeper

Add definition and punch to the front and extend the back to get a deeper sound. Expanse 3D uses a complex algorithm of delay networks with channel and phase processing to enhance the perception of depth and add space. It can be used to add dynamic contrast between separate sounds and glue multiple elements together for a more cohesive mix.

Get higher

Make your sounds larger than life by extending out the high and low ends. Unlike traditional EQ that boosts existing frequencies, Expanse 3D generates additional harmonics to give you deeper bass and brighter treble. It greatly improves the perception of low frequencies on speakers less able to produce them and adds controlled power and punch to larger systems.

Analogue beauty

Each dimension enhancer implements finely tuned saturation in its processing. It is modelled on analogue distortion, capturing all of the nuances, such as harmonic distribution, dynamic consistency, non-linear randomness and anti-aliasing algorithms to add beautifully rich and warm colour.

Transparent filters

All the Expanse 3D processes are applied to the appropriate frequency ranges using high-quality filters. These filters cause zero phase shift which makes them suitable for mastering and also does not have any latency.

Enhance your master

Using Expanse 3D subtly can greatly improve the overall impact and energy of the master, making it sound bigger and more exciting. The widener is sympathetic to each frequency, preserves the focus of the stereo position and is fully mono-compatible. Up to 8 times oversampling provides the highest quality saturation to add analogue colour, while the additional harmonics help add clarity. The whole mix gently becomes more cohesive as the parts share a common space. All of this can be perfectly balanced while retaining the original loudness using the auto gain function.

Glue your mix

The depth processor is useful for glueing a mix together as it adds a common space that all the mix elements share, it also, of course, adds depth. When used subtly, this can really make a huge difference to a full mix. There is also an auto gain switch, so you can make changes without changing the loudness.

Define your tracks

Expanse 3D can be used to create contrast between elements in your music by positioning them in the 3D space. You can widen two sounds with one inverted to separate them, create dynamic depth between deep & shallow and brighten sounds to make them stand out from the crowd. All of this helps to further define the individuality of each part, that makes up a complete, dynamic and full sounding mix.

Hassle-free software protection

No iLok, no dongle, or internet access is required for activation. Our software uses license files to activate your software. You can freely use the purchased software on all your computers as long as you are the user.

FREE 15-Day unlimited trial

All the descriptions are nothing compared to putting your hands on the plugin. No saving limits. No noises. No boundaries. Engage the plugin in your project for real and fully exploit its powers for two weeks.

64-bit audio quality at ANY sampling rate

The plugin provides the maximum audio quality you can get. It uses internal 64-bit audio processing and can handle any sampling rate. 192 kHz or even higher.

Smart bypass

The intelligent way our plugins manage bypassing ensures that you don't get any clicks or harmful noises when automating the parameter. It also compensates for latency, ensuring that the bypass states are perfectly in sync with each other.

Intelligent sleep on silence

This plugin intelligently detects whether it makes sense to perform processing at all. If not, it temporarily turns on sleep mode. In such a state, it requires virtually no CPU at all to save the computing sources for other processes.

Free-for-life updates

Our plugins never become obsolete. We keep track of the current operating systems and DAWs. You may always update to the most recent version for free, without paying a cent, a penny, or whatever currency you prefer.

I just dropped it straight on to a drum mix bus... I love it, immediately! It is superb for adding a sense of depth and ambience, but kick drums, no matter how dead can be brought to life. Clever stuff!

This really does add 3D depth to a sound. Used subtly its perfect for positioning instruments in a mix. But you can also make them sound larger than life if you choose to. It's one of those plugins where when I bypass it to see what it's like with out, I immediately want to switch it back in.

As the three knobs indicate, width adds width, height adds height, and depth adds depth to the sound. It's almost like magic, becoming an essential element in my sound processing.

Have you ever wanted a unique plug-in that makes vocals sound larger than life during a breakdown in your mix? Expanse 3D gives you all of that and more. The ability to create a sense of space for the listener without having to reach for reverb is incredible.

Wide! Big! In your face results with a simple yet very powerful interface. My new go-2 plugin to make everything "HUGE"!

JMG Sound have produced a real winner of a product with the Expanse 3D plugin: it’s affordable, simple to use and creates insanely great results – what more could you ever ask for?

Expanse 3D is an extremely easy to use and versatile plugin that is way more than the sum of its parts. There isn’t a single source I can think of that wouldn’t benefit from adding one or more of its three dimensions,

A truly unique audio processor that is very effective for both spatial and harmonic enhancement. Definitely worth a listen.
