NUGEN Audio - Halo Upmix + 3D Immersive Extension

**This product includes Upmix & the 3D Extension.**

Full control, intuitive ease

From naturally extracted and expanded soundscapes to full cinematic big-stage enhancement, Halo Upmix delivers all the control you need to fine-tune your surround mix to perfection. With unique centre channel management, including switchable dialog extraction, Halo Upmix is perfect for all types of production from archive restoration and TV through to the full 7.1 feature film experience.

The 3D extension adds Dolby Atmos bed track (7.1.2) and Auro 3D (7.1.4) compatibility, and Ambisonic outputs.

The Halo Upmix algorithms produce a natural, coherent spatial upmix, preserving the character of the original audio without adding any artificial reverb, chorus or delays.

With the 'Exact' control engaged, Halo Upmix can be used with confidence that the original source integrity is precisely preserved in the downmix.

Natural extension

Powerful real-time analysis of the original stereo material identifies and extracts locational cues to naturally extend the panorama, leaving the inherent character of the original source intact.

  • Coherent spatial upmix
  • Full access to surround balances
  • Low frequency energy control
  • Clear visual feedback
  • Direct control over upmix parameters
  • No artificial reverb, chorus or delays
  • 'Exact' downmix mode with in-place audition
  • Neural network dialog extraction

Downmix compatibility

Because Halo Upmix generates a coherent spatial sound, you can be assured of a high-quality downmix. The 'exact' mode function ensures ultimate downmix performance in situations where maintaining the relationship between the original, upmixed and downmixed versions is imperative, for example in TV repurposing.

3D Immersive Extension

The 3D Immersive Extension introduces additional vertical controls via an expanded user interface including control over Ltm and Rtm placement for Dolby Atmos compatibility. An additional real-time analysis view is also included for the vertical dimension, showing energy distribution of the output audio.

The enhanced upmix algorithm allows for simultaneous use of all the original features including dialog isolation and individual channel output control.
