DontCrack’s 10th Anniversary Coming Up…

Dear Friends,

It’s that back to school period again and this one will be very special for us as we are shortly going to celebrate DontCrack’s 10th ANNIVERSARY!

That’s right, DontCrack was “officially” launched in October 2006 and we were the very first audio plug-in store to sell third party software, moreover, with instant download delivery.

That makes us the oldest Audio Plug-in Store and a reference for the whole music industry. Imagine, we were there before Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, and ALL of our competitors way before they even thought about going live on the Internet. ;-)

This newsletter has been sent to over 150,000 loyal customers that rely on us to promote and support ONLY the very best audio software available on the market.

Our customers also know that we provide quick and professional customer support and that they can retrieve any order confirmation ONLINE by simply connecting to our efficient Help Center.

It’s not secret that we’ve maintained solid partnerships with many leading audio plug-in manufacturers listed at DontCrack and that we have been very influential in the development of many best selling products.

We even created our own plug-in company in 2011 under the acclaimed brand “Plug & Mix”. P&M now counts over 25,000 proud followers on Facebook and has sold for over $1,000,000 since 2013.

We also proudly launched Plugivery.com in 2013, and in just over 2 years, Plugivery has become a leading online distribution service that delivers amazing products for Applied Acoustics Systems (AAS), Audionamix, BBE Sound, Flux, GRM Tools, Ircam Lab, Metric Halo, Nomad Factory, Nugen Audio, Overloud and many other leading brands to hundreds of solid Pro Audio Retailers all around the globe…

How did we achieve all of that in ONLY 10 years? There’s no magic, we worked hard and we did our very best to provide a great user experience to all of our customers. We love what we do and we are actively working to provide more cool services…

Now, stay tuned cause we’re back to school and we’ll have many great product announcements and hot partner promotions from today until the end of the year!

Feel free to post any comments (good or bad) in our dedicated forums as these help us greatly improve our services. You may also Like us on Facebook and/or follow us on Twitter to keep up to date with our latest information.

Thank you so much for being a loyal customer. See you soon at DontCrack.com!

Kind regards,

Eric Nolot
Co-Founder and CEO

Nugen Audio upgrades Halo Upmix for Multichannel inputs!

Nugen Audio has introduced a ‘significant’ upgrade to Halo Upmix, its plug-in for upmixing stereo audio to surround sound, at the IBC Show in Amsterdam.

With the newest version, Halo Upmix now enables multichannel-to-multichannel upmixing, delivering new levels of versatility and time savings in the production of surround audio.

Available in Avid AAX, VST, and AU formats, Halo Upmix automates the creation of a stereo-to-surround, downmix-compatible upmix with unique centre-channel management and spatial density controls.

The latest version of the plug-in adds a new set of algorithms for upmixing from multichannel audio (LCR, Quad (4.0), 5.0, 5.1, 7.0 and 7.1) to either 5.1, 7.1, or 9.1 (7.1.2). This expanded multichannel support means that Halo Upmix users have an even broader array of options for upmixing, while the upgrade also includes other modifications designed to enhance user operability and finesse the interface customisation process.

Earlier this year, the company introduced a 9.1 option for Halo Upmix that allows the introduction of a vertical dimension into the upmix, generating a 7.1.2 (Dolby Atmos) bed-track-compatible upmix.

“Since its launch at IBC2015, Halo Upmix has received widespread industry acclaim — helping producers tackle a wide range of upmixing tasks easily and intuitively without compromising quality. And at this year’s NAB Show, we became one of the first companies to introduce a 9.1 upmix option,” said Jon Schorah, founder and creative director, Nugen Audio. “Now, with the new multichannel-to-multichannel features, Halo Upmix offers even greater support for audio professionals in surround production and provides the control and flexibility needed for surround upmixing at the highest level.”

The multichannel-to-multichannel upmixing capability will be a free upgrade for existing Halo Upmix customers and is being demonstrated on Nugen’s stand 8.D56 at IBC2016.

Halo Upmix is available for $499 on The DontCrack Store.

The 9.1 extension for Halo Upmix is $199 on the The DontCrack Store.

Here is a great video from ProTools Expert explaining the Halo Upmix.
