A Word From Our Podcast Sponsor
NUGEN Audio provides advanced audio solutions for post-production and broadcast, including upmixing, loudness management, metering and correction.
NUGEN Audio’s Halo Upmix has become the go-to upmixer for many post-production engineers. The plug-in was used on Kingsman: The Golden Circle, and the Netflix series The Haunting of Hill House, to name just a couple.
Halo Upmix’s optional 3D extension introduces additional vertical controls, which adds scope for upmixing to 7.1.2, 7.1.4 and 5.1.4, as well as 1st, 2nd and 3rd order Ambisonics.
Halo Upmix is complemented by a corresponding downmixer, Halo Downmix, which gives you deep control for downmixing to stereo from channel counts up to 7.1.2, with the 3D extension
