Halo Upmix is the obvious upmixing choice for anyone serious about audio fidelity. Whether upmixing stereo stems or repurposing archive material, the plug-in produces a natural-sounding, coherent spatial upmix.
The rest of the Surround Suite bundle complements Halo Upmix perfectly, delivering all the control needed to define, enhance and fine-tune your surround mix to perfection. On top of that, optional 3D and DSP extensions allow you to really push your production to the next level.
Immersive user stories...
Fernando Richard, Ivan Markovic & Francisco Bissone recently launched Immersive Audio Solutions, a Dolby Atmos-approved studio in Argentina. All three are longtime NUGEN Audio users, and tools like Halo Upmix and Paragon have been integral for their immersive mixes.
"It’s very obvious that NUGEN has put a lot of time and effort into creating plug-ins that benefit the creativity of mixing and mastering engineers."
Jim Schultz & Michael Minkler worked on Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. They spoke with us and explained how Halo Upmix allowed them to mix from stereo to 5.1, 7.1, Dolby Atmos and back again.
"Sometimes we stayed within three or five channels and other times we'd go up to seven channels or Atmos. In some cases, however, we had to upmix to 7.1 from a mono source, which is a little trickier but with NUGEN's Halo Upmix, we were able to do it successfully."
Alan Meyerson has an impressive resumé, including work on franchises like Shrek, Star Wars and X-Men. We interviewed him about immersive audio, and how he used Surround Suite for Moby’s Reprise.
"I first started using NUGEN’s Halo Upmix and Halo Downmix for surround and immersive sound projects, and it was fantastic."
Joe Barnett is an industry veteran with over 30 years of experience. In his work as a re-recording mixer, he relies on Halo Upmix for surround and Atmos projects.
"Often, my music elements are stereo and, since all our shows and movies are either 5.1, 7.1 or Atmos, they require some methods of spreading. I have tried most of the alternatives, and in my opinion, nothing beats Halo Upmix.’’
Lucy Mitchell is a sound editor and dubbing mixer, as well as owner of LJ Studios, which she built herself from scratch. Last year she spoke to us about her career beginnings, and how NUGEN plug-ins fit into the recent feature film project Rising Free.
"I actually used Halo Upmix for the first time on Rising Free, and I was really impressed. The UI is simple and easy to navigate, and I like how easy it is to alter the divergence."
Jonathan Wales, another industry giant, explained to us how he adapts to changing technologies, and how he has used NUGEN software on recent projects such as 13 Reasons Why and Dr Sleep.
"Halo Upmix is incredibly valuable because it is highly compatible when you take the resulting mix and fold it down to different formats."
