Abstract: The Voiculescu $ S$-transform is an analytic tool for computing free multiplicative convolutions of probability measures. It has been studied for probability measures with non-negative support and for probability measures having all moments and zero mean. We extend the $ S$-transform to symmetric probability measures with unbounded support and without moments. As an application, a representation of symmetric free stable measures is derived as a multiplicative convolution of the semicircle measure with a positive free stable measure.
