[NAMM]Waves Stereo-To-Surround Processor
Waves Audio introduces the new UM225 and UM226 Stereo-to-Surround Processors.
From music to movie soundtracks and beyond, content of all types is being upmixed from stereo to surround. Audio engineers are being called upon to upmix from a wide variety of source materials, and when the original multi-track sessions are not available, they have to work from stereo mixes. Using Waves' center and rear channel extraction processes, together with a LFE channel enrichment process, the UM225 (for 5.0) and UM226 (for 5.1) deliver surround imaging, designed for a wider soundscape with better separation.
Key UM225 and UM226 features include channel de-correlation and ambience; clarity and separation of frontal center; profile modes for film and music; advanced LFE channel LoAir enrichment with cutoff-frequency control; adjustable rear channel ambience; and an intuitive surround graph, according to Waves
The UM225 and UM226 are available together as a single collection. They are also available in Waves Mercury and 360° Surround Tools. Users of Waves Mercury and 360° Surround Tools covered by Waves Update Plan will receive the UM225 and UM226 at no additional charge.
