Hello to all. Im a 3rd year student investigating The use of DSS in question 5.1 in the horror film genre - with the intention of re-doing the audio for the end scene of "The Ring" in 5.1. Id like to ask a few questions your responses would be much appreciated
1.DSS having roughly double the headroom in perceived loudness (about 10db) than compared to Dolby SR - how can this be taken advantage of creatively, is it best to make everything louder?
2.For Music, Sound FX Dialogue tracks what are the db levels in general for these tracks.
3.A lot of FX/Dialogue will used will be ghostly heavy-breathing, breathing rises to create the presence of a supernatural being. Where is it best use these effects in the 5.1 spectrum. Without distracting the audience from the horror of the scene?
Thank you very much Tommy Helling
