Charles, what settings are you use on WIDE?

My starting point settings are:

Input: -4 dB
Boost: On
Freq: 1088 Hz
Boost: 9% (this is something I've been doing differently for awhile)
Amount: 17-23% (to taste)

Since I have this plug last in the chain, its output determines my level to disk. So, just before bouncing I clear the peak margins (by clicking the numbers underneath the output meters). I play the track top to bottom. The peak margins now tell me how much I can raise Wide's Input. If they say -2.3 dB, I'll raise the Input by 2 dB, giving myself a ceiling when I bounce of 0.3 dB.

Hope this helps.
