Space Designer spread controls in Final Cut Pro
The Space Designer effect’s Spread and Xover knobs enhance the perceived width of the signal, without losing the directional information of the input signal normally found in the higher frequency range. Low frequencies are spread to the sides, reducing the amount of low-frequency content in the center—allowing the reverb to nicely wrap around the mix. The Spread and Xover knobs function only in Synthesized IR mode.
Note: As these parameters adjust stereo or surround processing, they have no impact when Space Designer is used as a mono plug-in.

Spread knob and field: Extend the stereo or surround base to frequencies that fall below the frequency determined by the Xover (crossover) parameter.
At a Spread value of 0.00, no stereo or surround information is added (although the inherent stereo or surround information of the source signal and reverb are retained).
At a value of 1.00, the left and right channel divergence is at its maximum.
Xover knob and field: Set the crossover frequency in hertz. Any synthesized impulse response frequency that falls below this value is affected by the Spread parameter (at values over 0).
