The UM225 & UM226 Native from Waves use patented center and rear channel extraction processes, together with a unique LFE channel enrichment process, to deliver improved 5.0 and 5.1 surround imaging.

In order to achieve optimal surround from stereo, the character of the original mix needs to be maintained… including absolute levels, relative levels, and relative positions in space. At the same time, the potential of the center, rear, and LFE channels must be realized to create a rich, enveloping 360 degree mix. The UM225 & UM226 are excellent sounding stereo-to-surround processors, allowing creative conversion of stereo sources to surround in real time.
