Nugen Audio’s new Surround Suite bundles Halo Downmix, Halo Upmix, ISL True Peak limiter and Seq-S match and morph EQ software for movie and television production.

Nugen Audio Surround Suite bundleSurround Suite offers full access to surround balances, clear visual feedback and individual surround channel access. The toolkit also allows users to regulate low frequency content and fine-tune surround mixes, without the possibility of phase warping. Halo Downmix, complements postproduction workflow using precise surround control, mix monitoring and versatile downmix balancing to accelerate productivity on surround mixes. Typically considered the final piece of a production workflow, Halo Downmix allows users to deliver projects in both stereo and surround formats.

‘Parent’ software to Downmix, Halo Upmix uses centre-channel management and switchable dialogue extraction for everything from archive restoration and TV, to 7.1 feature films, providing a tool for Dolby Atmos, Aura 3D and Ambisonic production. A 3D immersive audio option is also available.

Also included is the ISL True Peak limiter, which automatically adjusts transfer curve parameters for minimally invasive brick-wall protection. The software eliminates the risk of distortion from downstream codec conversions or inter-sample clip reconstruction errors, allowing users to edit to the standards of today’s OTT/streaming services.

The Seq-S plug-in allows spline matching and morphing independent EQ transitions. This includes dynamic and static pass filter effects; seamless transitions between differing environments; and creative morphs and tempo-locked effects. Beyond traditional EQ, SEQ-S can be used to capture the flavour of a source audio and transfer it to a new piece for restoration and harmonisation work or to unify different takes or microphone positions.

‘We take pride in tailoring our products to the specific needs of audio professionals working in TV and film, enabling them to accomplish their full creative vision in a time- and results-oriented manner,’ says Nugen Audio CEO, Paul Tapper. ‘Surround Suite delivers all the control necessary to define, enhance and fine-tune a surround mix. As a result, it gives users access to precise and tweakable downmixing (Halo Downmix) and coherent and natural upmixing, from stereo to 5.1 and 7.1 (Halo Upmix). They can also take advantage of the suite’s True Peak limiting (ISL) and linear phase EQ (Seq-S).’
