The latest updates to Nugen Audio’s Halo Upmix 3D Immersive Extension are now available.
The updated version includes second and third order Ambisonic output and Auro-3D support.
Halo Upmix also now enables second and third order Ambisonic output and support for AmbiX and FuMa formats, ideal for 360 video VR and other immersive audio content, having previewed the updates at AES New York in the Autumn.
In addition to these updates for the 3D Immersive Extension, other updates to Halo Upmix include an advanced centre channel extraction that offers a ‘unique’ level of control – including neural network-based dialogue extraction. In this latest release, the dialogue isolation algorithm has been enhanced and improvements have been made to low-frequency handling, building on the advanced centee-channel control capability already available in Halo Upmix.
“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,” said 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.”
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.
