The three included plugins — DTS Neural Surround UpMix, DTS Neural Surround DownMix and DTS Neural Mono2Stereo — provide real-time processing for upmixing stereo sources to surround, downmixing surround sources to stereo, and converting mono content to stereo with full spectral accuracy. The collection is designed for applications in live sports and music broadcasts, Internet streaming, and post-production for television and film.
The DTS Neural Surround plugins are software replacements for the legacy hardware components that many broadcast facilities, OB vans and post-production studios currently use. Developed under license from DTS, and featuring streamlined interfaces, the plug-ins are easy to integrate and use. The software is SoundGrid-compatible and compatible with all popular DAWs/hosts.
DTS Neural Surround DownMix: This plugin reduces 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: This plugin provides unparalleled 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: This plugin 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 sub-mixes or individual mono sources, audio elements can be spatially separated to preserve intelligibility and create an enveloping image, nearly indistinguishable from native stereo content.
