Description


Full control, intuitive ease

From naturally extracted and expanded soundscapes to full cinematic big-stage enhancement, Halo Upmix delivers all the control you need to fine-tune your surround mix to perfection. With unique centre channel management, including switchable dialog extraction, Halo Upmix is perfect for all types of production from archive restoration and TV through to the full 7.1 feature film experience.

An optional 3D extension adds Dolby Atmos bed track (7.1.2) and Auro 3D (7.1.4) compatibility, and Ambisonic outputs.

The Halo Upmix algorithms produce a natural, coherent spatial upmix, preserving the character of the original audio without adding any artificial reverb, chorus or delays.

With the 'Exact' control engaged, Halo Upmix can be used with confidence that the original source integrity is precisely preserved in the downmix.

Natural extension

Powerful real-time analysis of the original stereo material identifies and extracts locational cues to naturally extend the panorama, leaving the inherent character of the original source intact.

  • Coherent spatial upmix
  • Full access to surround balances
  • Low frequency energy control
  • Clear visual feedback
  • Direct control over upmix parameters
  • No artificial reverb, chorus or delays
  • 'Exact' downmix mode with in-place audition

Description


Adjust your phantom center signal without changing the panorama or spectral characteristics.

Feel like the vocal is just a tiny bit too loud, but don’t want to change any of the stereo spread. CenterOne allows you to bring the phantom center in a stereo signal forward or backward without changing positions of any panned signals.

  • Phantom Center Manipulation: Bring the phantom center signal in a stereo stream forward or push it back by up to 9dB without changing any of the panorama
  • Extract Left-Center-Right: Convert a stereo signal into an LCR stem in a unique bit-identical way
  • Simple yet Beautiful Design: Beautiful Retina interface with unique design, focused on the optimal workflow
  • Extremely Good Filters: The highest quality audio processing algorithms available



Features

  • Center Prominence

  • Feel like the vocal is just a tiny bit too loud, but don’t want to change any of the stereo spread. CenterOne allows you to bring the phantom center of a stereo signal forward or backward without changing any of the panned signals.

  • Extract Center Channel from A Stereo Source

  • CenterOne also gives you LCR plugin outputs so you can decide to put an effect on just the center extracted channel. Mixing LCR back together gives you a bit-identical copy of the original signal.

  • No MS-Technique

  • CenterOne’s “Center Prominence” algorithm analyses the precise location of the sound sources in the stereo signal for a careful processing of each bit of your audio, respectful of the original location of the sources. The alternative MS-technique that attempts to change the level of the M part of the signal, fails to achieve a good performance due to the inherent drawback of the lateral sources leaking into the M part of the signal split.

Description


Enhance the soundstage of your stereo mix, and even bring your mono recordings to life.

Need to open up a stereo mix, individual drums, piano or guitars and making them wider without sounding phasey and keeping mono-compatibility? Or add depth to dry recordings without changing the tone or timbre? Or turn a mono instrument recording into stereo, much bigger than ever before? It's possible now!

  • Width: Width ‘stretches’ the stereo field, off-center content will move towards and beyond the speakers. Phantom center is left untouched, everything around it gets stretched or remapped to a wider stereo field.
  • Depth: Depth adds directionally optimised reflections to create an enhanced sense of depth in the sound field
  • Mono Spread: Mono spread utilises a unique filter design to convert a mono signal into a pseudo-stereo signal
  • Simple yet Beautiful Design: Beautiful Retina interface with unique design, focused on the optimal workflow



Features

  • When you have a stereo recording with too dense off-center panned sounds and you just want to spread it out to the side; a newly developed Width control algorithm allows you to remap the stereo field towards and beyond the speakers, while keeping mono compatibility!

  • We developed directionally optimised reflection patterns that blend naturally with any type of signal. You can simply move up the Depth slider when you want to add a deeper perspective to your mix. It works well with any source that sounds flat and sticks to the speakers. You have to hear it to believe it.

  • Mono Spread

  • The magic behind mono spread is a unique filter design that turns a mono source into pseudo-stereo, so you can take a mono guitar, or even vocal and make them bigger, while keeping perfect mono compatibility.

Expanse 3D

Stereo Width by United Plugins



Images



Description


The world is not flat neither should your music be. Expanse 3D, JMG Sound’s space enhancer, takes advantage of the most recent (and futuristic) knowledge of psychoacoustic effects to help your tracks explode into all three dimensions. This 3Dimension expander will make your sounds deeper, wider and bigger. Or, to sum it up in few words, your music will sound supermassive!




Features

  • Psychoacoustic Magic

  • Expanse achieves the 3D feel using a combination of analogue type saturation, spectral phase offsetting, re-synthesis, intricate delay networks and more. It can be used for mixing, mastering and sound design, it can help glue sounds together and create contrast and definition between sounds in a mix.

  • The advanced spectral phase processer creates super width while remaining natural and transparent. It keeps bass tight, reduces stereo from the sub and gets progressively wider to the high end. It is fully mono-compatible, preserves position focus and can generate stereo from mono.

  • Add definition and punch to the front and extend the back to get a deeper sound. Expanse 3D uses a complex algorithm of delay networks with channel and phase processing to enhance the perception of depth and add space. It can be used to add dynamic contrast between separate sounds and glue multiple elements together for a more cohesive mix.

  • Make your sounds larger than life by extending out the high and low ends. Unlike traditional EQ that boosts existing frequencies, Expanse 3D generates additional harmonics to give you deeper bass and brighter treble. It greatly improves the perception of low frequencies on speakers less able to produce them and adds controlled power and punch to larger systems.

  • Analogue Beauty

  • Each dimension enhancer implements finely tuned saturation in its processing. It is modelled on analogue distortion, capturing all of the nuances, such as harmonic distribution, dynamic consistency, non-linear randomness and anti-aliasing algorithms to add beautifully rich and warm colour.

  • Transparent Filters

  • All the Expanse 3D processes are applied to the appropriate frequency ranges using high-quality filters. These filters cause zero phase shift which makes them suitable for mastering and also does not have any latency.

  • Enhance Your Master

  • Using Expanse 3D subtly can greatly improve the overall impact and energy of the master, making it sound bigger and more exciting. The widener is sympathetic to each frequency, preserves the focus of the stereo position and is fully mono-compatible. Up to 8 times oversampling provides the highest quality saturation to add analogue colour, while the additional harmonics help add clarity. The whole mix gently becomes more cohesive as the parts share a common space. All of this can be perfectly balanced while retaining the original loudness using the auto gain function.

  • Glue Your Mix

  • The depth processor is useful for glueing a mix together as it adds a common space that all the mix elements share, it also, of course, adds depth. When used subtly, this can really make a huge difference to a full mix. There is also an auto gain switch, so you can make changes without changing the loudness.

  • Define Your Tracks

  • Expanse 3D can be used to create contrast between elements in your music by positioning them in the 3D space. You can widen two sounds with one inverted to separate them, create dynamic depth between deep & shallow and brighten sounds to make them stand out from the crowd. All of this helps to further define the individuality of each part, which makes up a complete, dynamic and full sounding mix.

  • Hassle-Free Software Protection

  • No iLok, no dongle nor internet access is required for activation. Our software uses licence files to activate your software. You can freely use the purchased software on all your computers as long as you are the user.

  • 15-Days Unlimited Trial Version for FREE

  • All the descriptions are nothing comparing to putting hands on the plugin yourself. No saving limits. No noises. No boundaries. Engage the plugin in your project for real and fully exploit its powers for two weeks.

  • 64-bit Audio Quality at ANY Sampling Rate

  • The plugin provides the maximum audio quality you can get. It uses internal 64-bit audio processing and can handle any sampling rate. 192 kHz or even higher.

  • Smart Bypass

  • The intelligent way our plugins manage bypassing ensures that you don't get any click or harmful noises when automating the parameter. It also compensates for latency ensuring that the bypass states are perfectly in sync with each other.

  • Intelligent Sleep on Silence

  • This plugin intelligently detects whether it makes sense to perform processing at all. And if not, it temporarily turns on sleep mode. In such a state, it requires virtually no CPU at all saves the computing sources for other processes.

Space Controller Standard

Stereo Width by Sound Particles



Images



Description


Space Controller is the best way to pan sounds in surround and immersive. Simply connect your mobile device to a DAW, use it as a movement reader and pan the sounds to where you’re pointing.

Panning with knobs in stereo is perfectly fine. However, when working with surround or 3D sound, even when using joysticks, it’s much harder to get the results you're looking for.

By connecting a mobile device and its motion sensors with any DAW, Sound Particles’ patent-pending technology offers a highly efficient and intuitive way to pan sounds to where you point the device.

Every movement you can imagine is now possible, easier than ever - and just a touch away. Space Controller is a plugin and an app, that together allow you to pan sound from stereo to any immersive format, either in a home studio or mixing stage.

Space Controller Standard Benefits:

  • Bluetooth
  • Stereo, Binaural, FOA & 5.1
  • Perfect for a Home Studio



Features

  • Size - Space Controller allows changing the size of sources, which will control the width of each sound. Higher sizes will make a sound reach for more speakers, whereas sounds with smaller sizes will reach less speakers.
  • Locks - It is possible to individually hold each position-related parameter, either as coordinates in Cube mode or angles in Sphere.
  • Modes - Choose from four different modes - Mono, Dual, Rotation and Symmetric - to place and move each source independently, control and rotate the entire sound field, or even use the Symmetric Mode to control the width of a 5.1 recording.
  • Cube vs Sphere - Space Controller offers the possibility of panning either in Cube or Sphere Mode, depending on your preferred workflow.
  • Multiple Views - It is possible to select between the top and rear views to get consistent visual cues of where the sound is being placed.
  • Stereo, Multichannel and Immersive Support - From stereo to 5.1, from FOA to Binaural, Space Controller Standard provides several output options for the panner.
  • iPod Support - Do you want a cheap dedicated controller for your studio? You can use an iPod touch instead of a mobile phone.
  • Dolby Atmos Objects - Copy and paste automation to Dolby Atmos Objects
  • Pan in even more audio formats - Quad, 4.0, LCR, LCRS, 5.0.2, 5.1.2, 5.0.4, 5.1.4, 7.0.4, 7.0.6, 7.1.6, 9.0.8, 9.1.8, 11.1.8

MicroShift

Stereo Width by Soundtoys



Images



Description


Make It Wide

The classic studio trick for super-wide vocals – with a powerful new twist.

Need some width for your background vocals? Want to make a lead guitar or synth sound larger than life? MicroShift gives you three different flavours of a classic stereo widening trick at the push of a button. It uses a special recipe of pitch shifting, and delay that varies over time, to create rich stereo width. It’s incredibly simple to use and perfect for spicing up important instruments, or for blending background vocals subtly into a mix.

Hardware Vibe

We designed MicroShift to nail the vibe of sought-after hardware pitch shifters like the Eventide H3000 (which featured algorithms originally designed by Soundtoys’ founders) and the AMS DMX 15-80s. MicroShift captures the quirks of the originals including saturation and even the different de-glitching algorithms used by these units. So now you can have the big, wide sound of the original hardware with a simple and refined interface that makes getting those tried-and-true sounds faster and easier than ever.

Expanded Features

While MicroShift is dead simple to use, we also let you precisely adjust the character of the width you’re adding to your tracks. Change the amount of time-varying delay with the Delay control. Adjust the amount of micro pitch shifting with the Detune control. And the Focus control lets you sculpt away low and mid frequencies that might make some tracks sound muddy.

A Little Taste is All You Need

When you buy MicroShift, you also get our original mini version of the effect, Little MicroShift. And it’s anything but little. It adds width, space, and spread to any track, just like its big brother, but with a simple three-button, one-knob interface. Perfect when you want to add width to a track with zero fuss.




Features

  • Widen vocals, lead guitars, synths and more
  • Get big sounds fast with a clean, simple interface
  • Put the spotlight on important instruments, or blend them into the background
  • Select from 3 different flavours of widening based on sought-after hardware
  • Add width to a specific frequency range with the Focus knob
  • Control the Detune amount and Delay range of the effect

PanMan

Stereo Width by Soundtoys



Images



Description


Rhythmic Auto Panner

Rhythmic auto-panning with cool classic features, new tricks, and analog colour.

Panning. You wouldn’t be alone if you thought of it as nothing more than the simple act of moving sounds from left to right and back again. But it can be so much more. PanMan opens up a Pandora’s Box of panoramic possibilities. Recreate the sounds of classic hardware panning boxes. Trigger panning with the dynamics of a track. Create complex rhythmic patterns and dizzying sweeps. With the full range of Soundtoys modulation tricks at your disposal, PanMan turns the simple act of panning into something incredibly creative and powerful.

Classic Auto Panning

PanMan incorporates features inspired by classic auto-panners. There are classic auto-panners? Yep! And we tracked down these obscure boxes, like the Spanner and PanScan, to study what makes them tick. One thing we just had to run with comes from the PanScan: the trigger divider. This quirky feature lets you set the number of trigger events it takes to move to a new pan position. For example, you can set it to scan from the left to right in three triggers. Trigger the panning by clicking with your mouse, automate the trigger with your host, or even set a threshold to have it respond to incoming audio. You can even filter the audio going to the trigger so it responds to just low, or high, frequency events. And of course, we didn’t stop there: we’ve added 7 different analog modes that add saturation and real analog vibe when you push PanMan hard.

Modern and Musical Tools

Like our other modulation effects, PanMan also offers advanced rhythmic tools that let you create your own signature pan effects. Two different rhythm modes give you tons of possibilities: Step mode lets you chose a new position on each beat and sync it to your host, while the Shape mode lets you choose from a library of custom panning shapes or even draw your own. Open the Tweak panel and you’ll find a bevy of creative options—you’ll be amazed at how versatile PanMan can be.

For panning effects that follow the feel of the music, you can even set the threshold control and trigger PanMan using the dynamics of your track. Move the width, speed and offset controls based on the rhythm of the audio. Create sounds that sweep whenever the snare drum hits. Change the speed of the panning based on the loudness of a vocal. With PanMan, you’ll come up with creative new pan-based effects you didn’t think were possible.

Features

  • Create custom auto panning effects, locked perfectly to your song’s tempo
  • Choose from 6 different panning modes including LFO, step and random
  • Recreates the clever “trigger divider” feature from the vintage PanScan hardware
  • Design your own rhythmic patterns and panning waveshapes
  • Set the threshold to let your music’s dynamics control speed, offset and width
  • Add vintage tone with 7 different analog emulation algorithms

Stereo Width by Blue Cat Audio



Images



Description


Detailed stereo image analysis with 3D visualization

Blue Cat's StereoScope Pro is a real time stereo field analyzer with multiple views and MIDI/automation output capabilities. It is a powerful help to analyze how the audio signal is spread in the stereo field, and you can easily detect potential phase and mono compatibilities issues. The stereo analysis can be controlled in detail and the precise measurement capabilities combined with the zoomable displays let you monitor exactly what is happening.

Choose the preferred view for your needs: real-time stereo field display, the evolution of the stereo image over time (2D or 3D) or output parameters that explicitly describe the average position and extent of the audio signal in the stereo field. The 3D waterfall view lets you see in detail from your preferred viewpoint the evolution of the stereo image over time.

The four memory slots let you store any curve in memory. This helps you make comparisons between several tracks or effects setups very easily. You can compare your mix with other commercial hits! Like Blue Cat's other professional analysis tools, the output parameters of this plug-in can be used to control other effects in real-time. The generated automation envelopes or MIDI CC messages include the minimum and maximum positions in the stereo field and the perceived position based on the audio energy spread in the stereo image.

Thanks to Blue Cat's skinning language support and the included window opacity management feature, you can adapt the plug-in user interface to your personal needs and enhance your workflow to work faster and more efficiently.

MStereoProcessor

Stereo Width by MeldaProduction



Images



Description


MStereoProcessor is an advanced multiband stereo analyzer and enhancer plugin. Using MStereoProcessor you can make your recordings and mixes sound more professional by easily controlling stereo image and the necessary perception of depth and space.

It is a necessary tool to finish your recordings. It lets you look at and listen to the stereo field and its mono compatibility, ensuring your recording is truly placed into the center. It can widen, shrink and excite stereo field on 4 separate bands.

Features

Global panorama, widening and exciting - for starters you can modify the panorama and widening of the signal itself. The algorithm is totally transparent and mono compatible. Finally you can apply a broadband exciter to improve the clarity of each band.

  • 4 bands with separate widening and exciting - while it is often desired to have bass stereo field minimal as opposed to treble, MStereoProcessor lets you process all bands separately. You can modify the stereo field from mono to a 200% increase and even perform delayed stereo enhancement. Both algorithms are fully transparent and mono compatible. You can also apply an exciter to improve the clarity of each band. MStereoProcessor provides 3 types of crossover (analog, linear-phase, hybrid), so you can choose the optimal band separation mode for your particular audio material.
  • 2D stereo field analyzer and channel peak meters - integrated analyzers give you an accurate view of the output stereo profile, which you can use to ensure the recording is accurately wide and has correct direction.
  • Mono/stereo field check - you can easily check if your recording is mono compatible and what the stereo content actually is.
  • Mute and solo for each band - you can always listen to each band and check that each spectral part of the recording is perfect.
  • Extremely advanced and easy-to-use user interface - our products are always designed to enhance the workflow. You can easily change all values, fine-tune each control in multiple ways. Easy orientation in a standardized GUI, textual editing and smooth visualization with almost unlimited zooming are standard in all of our plugins. Moreover our plugins are the world first (and still the only ones), which support resizable and stylable GUI's.
  • MIDI controllers with MIDI learn - you can map any parameter to any MIDI controller or MIDI keyboard and control it realtime or record and automate it.
  • Very fast, optimized for SSE and SSE2 processors.
  • Global preset management and online preset exchange - using a title button you can save your settings (which are shared on the computer) so you can easily access these in other songs. Moreover all plugins can automatically share your presets and download presets of other users from our servers (if this feature is enabled). We are building a community and you can be a part of it!
  • Fully automatable.

ReCenter

Stereo Width by Boom



Images



Description


The Instant Stereo Fix

Important note:  A FREE account at ilok.com is required (a physical USB iLok is not required)

ReCenter automatically repairs off-centre stereo recordings while keeping the original stereo width which makes it an invaluable time-saver and a perfect tool for professional post-production. Fix off-centred stereo field recordings, dynamically centre vocal artists or musicians that moved around the stage or centre hard directional effects like drive-bys and stereo whooshes. ReCenter makes tedious panning automation obsolete so you can focus on your creative flow.

What isReCenter?

ReCenter is a stereo processor that constantly analyses an incoming stereo signal and dynamically rotates it to the centre or a given angle without altering the stereo width. Having the incoming signal centred, you can narrow or widen the stereo image within ReCenter. For a better low-frequency control you can mono the original signal below a set frequency. A multiband processing option intelligently shifts more complicated signals.

Dynamically correct stereo images

Have you ever worked with stereo material that was not centred correctly? Pointing a stereo microphone a hundred percent accurately onto a sound source gets harder the further away the source is. As a result, you get a recording with a constantly shifting centre that would require you to manually adjust and automate the panning over the whole recording. ReCenter continuously analyzes the directionality of a stereo or M/S signal and rotates it to a given target angle in real-time – without narrowing the stereo image.

Goodbye corrective panning

Correct poorly aimed or moving stereo recordings while skipping the time-consuming and most often ineffective pan automation process. All you need to do is tell ReCenter how hard, fast and precisely it should adjust your signal.
This will drastically improve your workflow and save you hours of manual and tedious panning as well as constantly checking your stereo signal. With ReCenter, you have one thing less to worry about and you can focus all your energies on your creative work.




Features

  • Dynamically create convenient stereo images
  • Once the centre is restored, precisely alter the stereo image
  • Input stereo or M/S signals
  • Mono filter below certain frequencies
  • Multiband mode for heavy-duty applications
  • Widen or narrow the centred stereo image
  • Shift the output angle to left or right

Haaze 2

Stereo Width by Klevgrand



Images



Description


Stereo Tool

Bring any mono signal to life with this stereo enhancer.

The upgraded Haaze v2 from Klevgrand is an elegant solution for controlling stereo width and spatially positioning a sound in a stereo mix. Regular L-R panning is a weak tool that doesn't resemble real-world acoustics, which becomes clear when trying to place a mono sound naturally in a stereo mix (especially on headphones).

The result still feels very "mono". Haaze is an audio plugin that makes the positioning feel more natural, understandable, and pleasant for the ears. It splits the audio signal into 16 frequency bands. On each band, you can delay the left or right signal (which will make the listener believe the sound arrives from the side that’s reaching the ear first), pan it to the left or right, or adjust the overall width on that band (for example, make the lower frequencies more focused in the middle than the higher). Haaze can also diffuse a mono signal and make it wider.

If this sounds complicated, Haaze comes with many presets that will help you to get started. It sounds good both in headphones and loudspeakers, and it has great mono compatibility.

Anatomy

1. I Can Haaze? Control the delay between Left and Right on each band.

2. Pan(ic) button. This mode can pan each band separately between Left and Right.

3. In your widest dream. This mode sets how wide you want each band to be.

4. Gainz. Only if you need to compensate the gain after processing each band.

5. Happy Birthday Mr Presetident. Lots of presets that will help you to get started.




Features

  • 16 independent frequency bands
  • Haas: Control the delay between L/R on each band
  • Pan (Split EQ): Pan each band L/R
  • M/S: Control the width on each band
  • Gain: Compensate the gain level on each band
  • Draw mode, for easy plotting out the adjustment curve that you want
  • Lots of presets for helping you to get started
  • Stereo width meter + Level meter on each band

Energy Panner

Stereo Width by Sound Particles



Images



Description


Energy Panner uses the intensity of a sound to control its movement. From traditional stereo to immersive, this plugin enables artists to add dynamic depth to their panning techniques without any effort or additional routing.

Sound Intensity Controls Panning

With Energy Panner, the sound intensity controls the panner, creating movement that reacts to sound. Imagine drums moving at the beat, synth notes that move on attack, among many other behaviours. From music to audio post, from stereo to Dolby Atmos, Energy Panner is a plugin that you definitely want in your toolset.

Panning Mode

The Pan mode is essentially a normal end-to-end particle-based panning. This type of panning effect changes the position of the sound source between two points (start point -> endpoint) previously defined by you. Therefore, the greater the energy of the input signal the greater the shift from the starting point to the endpoint.

Sliding Mode

Whenever the audio signal reaches a certain level (threshold value), the sound source moves on a trajectory that you define. As opposed to pan mode, the sound source does not return to the starting point as soon as the signal level drops. The sound source will freeze that position until the audio signal exceeds the threshold value again, leading to a new shift of the sound source in the dome space.




Features

  • Stereo, Immersive & Binaural Outputs: From stereo, 7.1, HOA to Binaural and Dolby Atmos, Energy Panner gives you several output options based on virtual microphones technology.
  • Dynamic Movement: Easily set how the sounds will move. For instance, will they move from the speakers position to the centre or will they move clockwise starting from a custom position?
  • Sidechain: Use external signals to control the effect of the plugin instead of using the track’s sound for this.
  • Visualization Dome: Track every single movement the sounds are making through the main component of the plugin’s UI: the dome.
  • Randomization: Running out of ideas? Don’t worry! The Energy Panner has a randomize option that outputs a new result each time you click it.
  • Absolute Control: Energy Panner brings you all the options you need to have complete control over how the sounds are moving in the panoramic field.
