IOSONO Anymix offers natural surround mixes up to 8.1 and backwards 21/03/12
IOSONO tells us that Anymix is a first of its kind up- and downmix plug-in with integrated panning capabilities. They say that Anymix not only creates realistic surround mixes by using the IOSONO upmix engine, but gives the mixing engineer full control over a multitude of adjustable parameters such as Ambience, Stage Width and Dry/Wet signal, enabling a peerless natural flair of the surround mix. The plug-in comes with a broad selection of up- and downmix preferences tailored to be used in post-production, broadcast, music and game sound design. Plus, says IOSONO, Anymix offers a wealth of features for individual panning, such as EQ and distant-dependent loudness settings, turning the mix into an ultra-realistic surround scenario.
Anymix can be used to convert any input setup from mono to 8.1 to any output format from stereo to 8.1 and vice versa. In addition, the included surround panning mode offers deep control of channel positioning within the surround field, allowing precise movements of all surround channels. Even single sources can be dissolved from the multichannel setup and freely positioned within the listening space. Pricing and Availability:
