Waves UM225/UM226 TDM - Electronic Delivery – No Longer Available

Stereo to surround processor - electronic delivery
MFR# UMTDM

Product Description

From music to movie soundtracks and beyond, audio engineers are upmixing all sorts of content from stereo to surround, to capture the excitement of today’s full, multi-speaker environments. And when the original multi-track sessions aren’t available, they have to work with stereo mixes.

Presenting the Waves UM225 and UM226 stereo-to-surround processors, two new tools which bring Waves quality to the new surround soundscape.

Available separately or in 360º Surround Tools and Waves Mercury.

From 2 to 5.0 or 5.1
Experienced engineers know that in order to achieve optimal surround from stereo, they need to maintain the character of the original mix, including absolute levels, relative levels, and relative positions in space. At the same time, they want to realize the potential of the center, rear, and LFE channels, for a rich, enveloping 360˚ mix.

Using patented center and rear channel extraction processes, together with a unique LFE channel enrichment process, the UM225 for 5.0 and the UM226 for 5.1 deliver improved surround imaging, for a wider soundscape with better separation.

For sound designers who want to use stereo effects on surround soundtracks; for engineers updating archive material to the new HDTV surround standard; for keyboardists who need 5.0 or 5.1 output for virtual instruments; for post-production specialists who want to enhance LFE effects like explosions, earthquakes, and street rumble; and for recordists that require creative conversion of stereo sources to surround in real time, the UM225 and UM226 are the most versatile, best sounding stereo-to-surround processors out there.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
