At InfoComm 2016 in Las Vegas, Waves Audio, in booth C12029, is exhibiting its DTS Neural Surround Collection plug-in bundle ($499), comprising DTS Neural Surround DownMix, DTS Neural Surround UpMix and DTS Neural Mono2Stereo. Waves collaborated with DTS to create these plug-ins.
DTS Neural Surround DownMix is designed to reduce multichannel surround sound to a stereo mix while accurately representing the original intent of the content creator. Featuring the patented Active Correction Technology, DTS Neural Surround DownMix fixes common downmix issues, such as comb filtering and spatial inaccuracies. The result is a natural-sounding stereo mix that is spatially true to the original multichannel localization.
DTS Neural Surround UpMix offers control and consistency when creating 5.1 or 7.1 content from stereo or 5.1 source material. DTS Neural Surround UpMix is intended for projects where original source elements are not available in the desired multichannel mixing format. Combining precision and creative flexibility, DTS Neural Surround UpMix provides comprehensive creative controls for soundfield width and depth, channel layout, output levels, LFE filtering and final limiting. Audio stems processed with DTS Neural Surround UpMix properly downmix in the consumer environment.
DTS Neural Mono2Stereo provides complete control over how mono elements are positioned and perceived in the final stereo or 5.1 mix. By assigning multiple DTS Neural Mono2Stereo instances on submixes or individual mono sources, audio elements can be spatially separated to preserve intelligibility and create an enveloping image, nearly indistinguishable from native stereo content.
