New Stereo to 5.1 Surround Converter

From the same site that brings you AudioMuxer, SpecWeb is a drag and drop stereo to 5.1 converter that retains many of the features of its big brother Spec (The most popular upmix method on the net) but does not require Plogue Bidule.

We believe SpecWeb sounds better (or at least as good) as any commercial stereo to 5.1 solution out there (e.g. better than DTS' Neural Upmix, as good or better than Pento)

SpecWeb is for windows only at this time.

It has both a windows command line and HTML5 web interface, so can be controlled by computers, iOS, and Android devices any where are your local network.

It is designed to be faster and easier to use than the full (Plogue Bidule) version, but has fewer features.

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 theater
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 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.

SpeWeb is donationware

There is also a free "helper app" which helps automate full album conversions and adds more cool features:

This is a very curious problem. I am very interested in converting the stereo in my collection of old movies to 5.1.  (I'm also upscaling many of them to 3D Blu-ray...)

It appears that SpecWeb and it's  associated applications may be very good utilities for converting the audio to 5.1. Unfortunately, there are two problems. First, I can't find an actual download link for the latest version on the SoundByUs website. And (even worse,) I can't register for their forums. - The normal user registration will check for a valid email address for confirmation. Instead, their registration screen asks a repeated number of 'technical' questions, and some that can be answered can be answered many ways.

Sow how can I download SpecWeb (or,) Failing to successfully obtain SpecWeb, are there any other apps or plugins that can used to convert stereo to 5.1?
