“Having launched first order Ambisonic output in July, and previewing second and third order Ambisonic output at AES/NAB New York earlier this Fall, we are excited to get these new upgrades in the hands of our customers,” says Jon Schorah, founder and creative director, NUGEN Audio. “Tools such as Halo Upmix are now making 3D immersive audio possible within a traditional post-production workflow and DAW/NLE template.”
The Halo Upmix 3D Immersive Extension update also includes both 7.1.4 and 5.1.4 channel configurations to facilitate production in Auro-3D formats - a three-dimensional audio standard used across several industries, including cinema, gaming and automotive applications.
In addition to these updates for the 3D Immersive Extension, other updates to Halo Upmix are included that will benefit all Halo users. Halo's advanced center channel extraction offers a unique level of control - including neural network-based dialog extraction. In this latest release, the dialog isolation algorithm has been enhanced and improvements have been made to low-frequency handling, building on the advanced center-channel control capability already available in Halo Upmix.
Halo Upmix is available at a list price of $499. The Halo 3D Immersive Extension with Ambisonic output can be purchased for $199. Current owners of this extension can update to the new version free of charge.
