NUGEN Audio showcases the latest plug-ins at IBC 2022 – Music Connection Magazine

Audio NUGEN will showcase its latest streaming and cinema-focused plug-ins for IPC 2022 attendees at stand 7.P11. Among these is a preview of the new Halo Vision software, which is a customizable real-time visual analysis suite designed for 3D, surround and immersive audio workflows. The company is also showcasing the latest updates to its SigMod plug-in, which gives users greater flexibility in signal architecture, as well as Paragon, its 3D-compatible convolution reverb.

Running up to 7.1.2 channels for AAX, VST3 and AU formats, Halo Vision offers a variety of modules that provide audio professionals with a clearer understanding of every aspect of sound. Among the tools available are a Correlation Matrix, Correlation Web and Spectrum, as well as extended versions of NUGEN’s Frequency Haze and Location Haze functions, and a True Peak meter for each channel. These modules assist all mixing engineers in their decision-making and troubleshooting process, allowing them to identify issues that could be missed using only the ears. Halo Vision can be customized, rearranged, and resized to fit any specific workflow, making it perfect for a wide range of immersive sound projects, from music to film.

NUGEN has focused on creativity with the new version of its SigMod plug-in, which now includes mono and split-mono modes. There is also a new “Split” module that allows users to switch between stereo and split-mono formats, giving them greater flexibility in signal architecture. NUGEN’s SigMod software provides a simple, custom signal architecture with 13 single-process modules to enhance plug-in and DAW functionality. It offers creative working methods by allowing users to easily insert, swap and move modules to suit audio correction, conversion and adjustment. Available modules include Split, Mid/Side, Protect, Tap, Crossover, Insert, Mute/Solo, Trim, Switch, DC Off-Set, Mono, Phase and Delay.

With the purity of sound at the forefront of this plug-in, Paragon operates up to 7.1.2 audio channels, making it perfect for broadcast audio applications, as well as producing reverb in both mono and stereo formats. Using state-of-the-art technology, Paragon offers precise spectral analysis and equalizer of impulse responses (IR), which are analyzed, decomposed and re-synthesized to create authentic new spaces. This ensures a small digital footprint for the IR library and allows unlimited combinations of spaces to be configured with just a few settings adjustments. In addition, it features individually configurable crosstalk; unique technology for the resynthesis of genuine IR, HPF and LPF; and switchable LFE. New presets and an improved browser, with ‘search’, ‘tagging’ and ‘favorite’ functions have recently been added specifically for outdoor scenes, found in almost any film or television production.
