    Use m/s to keep bass frequencies mono centre. It's up to you where you cut off
    from whether that's 80-200hz. The more you roll off, the punchier and the higher
    master level you can get, but the less rounded/old-school sound so it depends on
    the style. I use Boz digital Labs Mongoose for this.

    Also, having mid-range on one side & high-end on the other will improve stereo
    impression and give the centre more depth. It's tempting to stereo electric
    guitars because it sounds big but kind of ironically it will reduce the impression
    of size overall. I've only recently learned this & started trying it out.

    The widener in Ozone is cool though!
