I've rendered audio content for radio and TV/commercials before, but rendering out a simple wav or mp3 has always been sufficient; as long as the ceiling was set to the appropriate level. However, today a client asked for the audio to be mixed down to "AES Channels 1 & 2." Is this a simple default AES spec or a certain codec? I've looked online but can't seem to find anything. Does the AES have a default setting for TV somewhere that I just can't seem to find?

Any info would be appreciated.

Thank You

  • maybe i'm missing something but in my experience if a spec or client is asking for a "mix down to AES Channels 1 & 2" they are asking that the stereo mix be layed back to tape (HD, digibeta) digitally (AES) on channels 1 & 2. Not a rendered and delivered BWAV but a tape layback to picture. – Brad Dale Jul 1 '13 at 18:27
