Bundled together by NuGen Audio for your convenience, Halo Upmix & Halo Downmix provides two useful software processes in one package. Halo Upmix provides tools to help you finely tailor a surround-sound mix, especially from stereo stems. The software utilizes neural networks for dialogue isolation and extraction, as well as natural directional projection with the introduction of artificial reverberation, chorusing, or delay.

Downmix, on the other hand, provides precise surround control and re-balancing, giving you a workflow that allows you to finely tune—and in some cases, rescue—both surround sessions and stereo results. Both plug-ins work with stereo, 5.1, and 7.1 formats. They are compatible with Mac and Windows platforms, and operate in AAX, AU, AudioSuite, RTAS, and VST formats.

    Halo Upmix from NuGen Audio is a plug-in that provides all the controls necessary for fine-tuning a surround mix. Perfect for all types of production, from archive restoration and TV, through to the full 7.1 feature film experience, the software provides comprehensive centre channel management and switchable dialog extraction.

    Real-time analysis of the stereo material identifies and extracts locational cues to aid in extending the panorama without the introduction of any artificial reverberation, chorusing or delay into the downmix. A coherent spatial sound assures a good downmix and maintains the relationship between the original, upmixed and downmixed versions, useful for TV re-purposing for instance.

    Centre channel extraction and control is available when dealing with intricate mixes, where no access to the original stems is available, and includes neural-network-based dialogue extraction. Additionally, Halo includes a spatial analysis view, showing the energy distribution of the upmixed panorama, and color can be used to indicate the speaker source for audio in any position.

    Halo Downmix from NuGen Audio is a plug-in designed to create precise downmixes of surround material to a stereo mix, or to re-balance existing surround mixes. It provides audio post-production engineers with the controls necessary to generate stereo mixes for television within a surround workflow, rapidly deliver a controlled stereo downmix of a 5.1/7.1 feature film, or fine-tune existing surround audio where access to the original mix is not possible.

    Halo Downmix's flexible and intuitive interface allows for critical listening and rapid assessment of mix issues with features such as surround/stereo monitoring modes, "in-place" monitoring, and quick-linked solo/mute at every stage. Equipped with a meter that provides real-time analysis of the surround energy distribution, the plug-in enables you to adjust the surround mix before it is downmixed to stereo. You can set the balance between the direct and ambient signals, remove rear-channel delay artifacts, regulate low-frequency content, and easily achieve accurate surround/stereo coherence, from the initial surround material.

    Precise Downmix and Surround Re-Balancing
    • Surround 5.1/7.1 to stereo downmixing
    • Maintain dialog quality 
    • Remove rear-channel delay artifacts — automatic rear-channel delay detection
    • Control excess ambient energy — ambient/direct sound balance
    • Fine-tune surround to surround material
    • Regulate low-frequency content
    • Surround input width control
    • Rear-channel shelf filters
    Applications
    • Stereo-mix production for television within a surround workflow
    • Rapidly produce a controlled, precise stereo downmix of a 5.1 or 7.1 feature film
    • Generate a stereo mix from surround where no stereo recording exists
    • Produce stereo interim listening mixes in a surround workflow
    • Simultaneous surround/stereo workflow
    • Surround re-balancing
    • Downmix rescue
    • Surround restoration
    Flexible and Intuitive Interface
    • 7.1 and 5.1 modes
    • Advance and compact modes
    • Quick-select "in-place" monitoring of stereo and surround
    • Quick-linked solo and mute at every stage
    Reliable Metering
    • Full input and output level metering
    • Direct numerical entry of all gain offsets
    • Adjustable meter color splits
    • Surround energy distribution visualization
