SpecWeb ~ Converts Two Channels To Multichannel 5.1


SpecWeb is a command line (windows console) version of the SPEC stereo to surround tool from http://www.surroundbyus.com. It is designed to be faster and easier to use than the full “Spec” version, and does not require Plogue Bidule.

SpecWeb also has an html5 “web” user interface, which works with chrome, firefox, iOS, android, and windows 10 edge browsers. You can control SpecWeb from a browser on the same computer or on any computer or supported device on your local network. For instance, you could sit in your home theatre listening position and control SpecWeb with an iPad.

It’s a great way to get started in making your own upmixes as all you have to do is drag and drop a lossless stereo file onto the SpecWeb icon and you get a 5.1 multichannel file in seconds.

While not all of the “knobs” from the full “Spec” version have been included, the most important ones are here and you can adjust them while you listen to the song, just as you can in the full version, then “record” the results.

Ultimate Mono2Stereo ~ Better Mono To Stereo


What sets this frontend for ffmpeg apart from other stereo simulators is it creates an illusion of actual stereo separation. More importantly, it produces none of the weird phasing, and/or time delay artifacts. And very little, if any of the tone discoloration, when those others aren’t meticulously set up just right. All this is accomplished by using the ffmpeg crossover audio filter to split the sound into 8 frequency bands. The split points are based on center frequencies of a typical 1/3 octave equalizer. Those 8 bands are then panned in varying degrees to left and right. The varying width of each band is set to achieve the best balance between the left and right channels.
