NUGEN Audio updates Halo Upmix - Multichannel-to-Multichannel Upmixing

NUGEN Audio

At IBC2016, NUGEN Audio introduced a significant upgrade for Halo Upmix, the company's plug-in for high-quality upmixing of stereo audio to surround sound. With the newest version, Halo Upmix now enables multichannel-to-multichannel upmixing, delivering new levels of versatility and significant time savings in the production of surround audio.

Available in Avid AAX, VST, and AU formats, Halo Upmix automates the creation of a stereo-to-surround, downmix-compatible upmix with unique center-channel management and spatial density controls. Halo Upmix combines several technologies, including frequency and time-domain energy distribution and neural network artificial intelligence, enabling producers to target various upmix goals including full stable surrounds, exact downmix matching, and/or full dialog isolation.

The latest version of Halo Upmix adds a brand-new set of algorithms for upmixing from multichannel audio (LCR, Quad (4.0), 5.0, 5.1, 7.0 and 7.1) to either 5.1, 7.1, or 9.1 (7.1.2). This expanded multichannel support means that Halo Upmix users have an even broader array of options for applying the tool's capabilities to create high-quality surround upmixes. In addition, the new upgrade includes many other modifications designed to enhance user operability and finesse the interface customization process.

Earlier this year, NUGEN Audio introduced a 9.1 option for Halo Upmix that allows the introduction of a vertical dimension into the upmix, generating a 7.1.2 (Dolby Atmos") bed-track-compatible upmix. The 9.1 option provides users with greater flexibility for high-quality archival restoration, content repurposing, post-production, and sound design.

The multichannel-to-multichannel upmixing capability will be a free upgrade for existing Halo Upmix customers. Halo is priced at $499, and the 9.1 extension is $199.
