LEEDS, U.K. — Oct. 25, 2012 — NUGEN  Audio, a creator of intuitive tools for audio professionals, is demonstrating a prototype of a software plug-in at AES 2012 that  offers market-leading upmixing/downmixing between stereo and 5.1  surround. The plug-in uses the patented ISOSTEM® technology, which is believed to be the only upmix engine that is fully  compatible with stereo. ISOSTEM delivers a surround stem that downmixes  exactly to the original stereo, and, if required, automatically  constrains the dialog in the center channel.
The  availability of the crossmix technology in a plug-in will give studios a  convenient and powerful software-based mixing tool to complement the  ISOSTEM real-time conversion hardware.
NUGEN  Audio will develop three versions of the plug-in, which will allow  audio professionals to produce a mix in the studio using a stereo mixing  process, with the software automating the conversion to 5.1. An upmix plug-in will provide pure upmix with  flexible settings, while the crossmix plug-in provides upmix as well as  downmix. The third version will provide the extended functionality  available in the ISOSTEM expert model.
"These  plug-ins will give audio professionals the tools to create a mix that  works perfectly in both stereo and 5.1 at the set-top box, without any of the phase artifacts that often appear when 5.1 is collapsed down  to stereo," said Jon Schorah, creative director of NUGEN Audio. "And by  automating the creation of a great 5.1 mix out of the components of a  standard stereo mix, they will also save a lot of studio time."
The range of plug-ins will be AU/VST/RTAS/AAX-compatible.
