NUGEN Audio Halo Upmix With 3D Immersive Extension
Nugen Audio Halo Upmix delivers all the control you need to fine-tune your surround mix to perfection, from naturally extracted and expanded soundscapes to full cinematic big-stage enhancement. 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.
This optional 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.
The 3D Immersive Extension introduces additional vertical controls via an expanded user interface including control over Ltm and Rtm placement for Dolby Atmos compatible placement. 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.
The Halo 3D option is suitable for numerous applications including sound design, film score, restoration & archive, music and atmospheric soundscape production.
The Halo Upmix 3D Immersive Extension currently supports Avid Protools (AAX) & Steinberg Nuendo (VST3) for Windows and OSX.

Halo Upmix Includes
Powerful real-time analysis of the original stereo material
identifies and extracts locational cues, to naturally extend the
panorama - without the introduction of any artificial reverberation,
chorusing or delay into the downmix - leaving the inherent character of
the original source intact.
Because Halo generates a coherent spatial sound, you can be assured
of a high-quality downmix. The 'exact' mode function ensures ultimate
downmix performance where, as in TV re-purposing for instance,
maintaining the relationship between the original, upmixed and downmixed
versions is imperative.
For those situations that require an immersive cinematic dynamic,
full control is available of all the relative surround balances,
allowing any surround upmix to be crafted for a perfect blend into the
complete 7.1 panorama.
Detailed Centre Channel Control
Centre channel extraction and control is provided for in a separate
'advanced' panel for use when dealing with intricate mixes, where no
access to the original stems is available, offering unparalleled control
- including neural network based dialogue extraction.
Powerful Spatial Analysis
Halo also includes a powerful spatial analysis view, intuitively
showing the energy distribution of the upmixed panorama. Colour can
additionally be used to indicate the speaker source for audio in any
position, clearly indicating cases including phantom vs hard centre
