All the time when I'm mastering other people's work, rarely in my own music.

stereo image widening/narrowing for specific frequency bands.

One day you know I might even record a mix, and when I do it will be here, don't hold your breath though ;)

It's not a widening technique per se, though sometimes you can fake it with M/S EQ. Basically certain plug ins will allow you to EQ only the content that is shared in both the Left and Right channels (ie, the mid), or frequencies that are different in both the left and right content (ie, the side). It's useful if say you have a mix where the vocal is a little too bright in the center, but you don't want to EQ the whole song which might make the lovely effects and stereo reverbs disappear. So you can use the mid channel of the EQ to adjust the vocal in the center, leaving the stereo information intact (mostly).

Off the top of my head I know Ableton's EQ8 and DMG's eQuality offer this, though I'm sure there's others too.

Mid/Side can be a seriously badass tool if you use it right. FabFilter Pro-Q is nice for this, as well as GlissEQ.

Is that what it will do? I have yet to delve into this.

so if your kick drum were a cantaloup and you well and truley pushed the sides out, like scooping out with a spoon, you'd have no juicy insides left but a very nice shell where the once juicy cantaloupe resided? I think i got it :idea:
