At the 139th AES Convention in New York City, NUGEN Audio will present its latest innovations in audio and loudness management for the music and audio post-production communities.
Highlights include a new filter morphing feature for the company’s SEQ-S equalizer plug-in, plus SEQ-ST — a stereo version designed for music production; a significant update of the Visualizer audio analysis tool; and the first U.S. showing of the company’s new Halo Upmix stereo-to-5.1/7.1 upmixing solution.
NUGEN Audio will also feature its full line of tools for audio analysis, loudness metering, and mixing/mastering, including MasterCheck — the first music-industry-specific audio plug-in designed to facilitate mix and mastering for the modern world of loudness normalized playout on platforms such as iTunes, Spotify, YouTube, and DAB Radio.
NEW: SEQ-ST Spline Equalizer With Filter Morphing
At AES, NUGEN Audio will introduce SEQ-ST, a new, stereo-only version of SEQ-S, its full-surround sonic sculpting and matching EQ. SEQ-ST has been released in response to fast-growing demand from the company’s professional music production clients. The update includes a powerful new filter morphing feature that allows fluid morphing between two sets of filter curves under full user control. Useful for creative effects and controlled scene transitions, this new feature has wide-ranging applications within the music, film, and post-production environments. In addition, NUGEN Audio’s full-surround spline equalizer, SEQ-S, will receive a significant update — free to users — which includes the new filter morphing feature.
Update: Visualizer Audio Analysis Update
NUGEN Audio will introduce a significant upgrade to Visualizer, the company’s comprehensive audio analysis plug-in and standalone metering system. The latest version of Visualizer includes a new comparison mode, a significant upgrade to the Lissajous view, and numerous fine-tuning improvements, further enhancing intuitive operation and allowing rapid adjustment to achieve a perfectly optimized visualization for the task in hand. This update is available for both native and DSP versions of Visualizer.
For music mixing and mastering as well as audio post-production, Visualizer provides comprehensive audio analysis for recording, mixing, and mastering in a single plug-in. A standardized reference set of professional tools is designed to help audio engineers work faster, avoid mistakes, repeat past successes, and understand the success of others.
Halo Upmix: Stereo-to-5.1/7.1 Upmixing Solution
For the first time at AES, NUGEN Audio will demonstrate Halo Upmix, which has received much critical acclaim since its launch at IBC2015 in Amsterdam in September. Halo Upmix is the first product based on the company’s proprietary new processes for upmixing stereo audio to 5.1/7.1 surround in television and film productions.
