Award Winning 5.1 / 7.1 + 3D Immersive Upmix / Downmix Plugin
Since 2012, Penteo’s unique phaseless AAX / VST3 audio plugin produces the highest quality multichannel upmix/downmix that always adheres to the original mixers intent - nothing is artifically added, altered or removed from the source.
All Formats: Penteo is the only up- and downmixer that supports all major formats - Stereo, 5.1 / 7.1 Surround, Dolby Atmos, Auro3D, DTSX, and Ambisonics - from a single plugin.
16 Channels: Penteo blows past Pro Tool's channel limitation giving sound designers 16 channels up or down - including Atmos 9.1.6 and 3rd Order Ambisonics FuMa/AmbiX.
Phaseless Process: Penteo's unique phaseless process generates the perfect upmix with zero unwanted artifacts that downmixes 100% ITU back to any orignal source.
Faster Workflows: Switch between formats on-the-fly without plugin re-initiation. Penteo Modes, Dialog Control, 2D/3D Visualizer and LFE controls speed mix workflows.
All-In One Plugin: 16 Channel Upmixer + 16 Channel downmixer, all formats included in one plugin for less than half the cost of other upmixers.

“Pelino relies on Penteo to do clean upmixes of the music that appears in documentary sections. The goal is to get those segments to match as closely as possible the quality of the music in the live performances. Penteo really translates perfectly in the stereo downmix, there is absolutely no phasing or artifacts, and that is most important to me when upmixing to 5.1 Surround.”
