Chris Fogel Makes NUGEN Audio An Essential Part Of His Workflow

News Image
Multiple GRAMMY® Award, Emmy and Oscar-winning Recording and Mixing Engineer Chris Fogel has worked on the scores and soundtracks of over 200 major motion pictures and television shows.

These include the Oscar-winning score to Black Panther and the Emmy-winning scores to The Mandalorian and Severance. Additional projects include Mission Impossible 7 — Dead Reckoning, Venom, Blue Beetle, Tenet and many more. He has also worked with dozens of major recording artists, like Alanis Morissette, Justin Timberlake, U2, Childish Gambino, Sheryl Crow, Aerosmith, St. Vincent, José González and Robbie Robertson.

To ensure his sound meets the standards of such high-caliber productions, Fogel has made NUGEN Audio an essential part of his workflow on all his projects, including his latest film scoring projects for movies like Oppenheimer and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Some of the NUGEN solutions he relies on most often include Halo Upmix, Halo Downmix, Monofilter and Stereoizer, among others.

A main benefit of the NUGEN plug-ins for Fogel is that they make it possible for him to deliver projects in various formats, specifically Halo Upmix for film scores. "Oppenheimer was mixed in 5.0 IMAX, so we didn’t have to worry about going above 5.0 for that, but Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was delivered in 7.1.4, which we had to accommodate to have it sound right. It’s a punchy, loud, percussive-infused score that can’t lose its intensity, which often happens with upmixing — everything gets phasey and you start losing the drive of the sound. I always listen to the original stereo mono sound to make sure it’s still what I want. With NUGEN, I’m in the vicinity of where I need to be to satisfy my delivery requirements."
