Seamlessly bring audio from stereo to rich surround
When your goal is to transition audio from its original stereo mix to full-on 5.0 or 5.1 surround, you want to retain that mix's original character - its relative positioning in space, its levels, and the overall "feel." That's why Waves designed the UM225/UM226 plug-ins. You can upmix all sorts of content from stereo to surround - without compromising sound quality. Whether you're a sound designer who wants to use stereo effects on surround soundtracks, a keyboardist wanting to output your virtual instruments in 5.0 or 5.1, a post-production specialist wanting to enhance LFE effects, a recordist wanting to bring stereo to surround in real time - or anywhere outside and in between - the Waves UM225/UM226 will be a welcome, time-saving addition to your plug-in arsenal.

Waves' patented processes deliver exceptional sound-quality
To achieve the incredible sound with the UM225/UM226 plug-ins, Waves employed patented center and rear channel extraction processes and blended it with an LFE channel enrichment process. The result is improved surround imaging with a wider soundscape and better separation. As you'd expect from Waves, the plug-ins are top-of-the-line, and give you a range of control to tweak the mix extraction to perfection. There are profile modes for music and movies, LFE channel LoAir enrichment with cut-off frequency control, adjustable rear-channel ambience and delay, an intuitive surround graph for you to work with, and much, much more.

Includes Waves UM225 for 5.0 and UM226 for 5.1
With the Waves UM225/UM226, you actually get two plug-ins. UM225 is designed to upmix stereo to 5.0 surround, while the UM226 upmixes your stereo to 5.1 surround.
