Well, I found the solution in another software named "Sound Forge Pro v10". Steps: File > New > Select "Surround 5.1" or "Surround 7.1". In that page you will see 6 or 8 rows. Drag&Drop your files in these rows. After that you can change the default channel assigned to row by clicking on the numbers at the top of right-side. Finally save the result ...

Working on headphones for a 5.1 mix is not a good idea. Nevertheless, what you might be looking for is a 5.1 to binaural renderer. An example of such a product can be found here : http://smyth-research.com/technology.html What I would suggest is doing most of the job (editing, premixing stems, filtering, etc.) on a stereo monitoring system (therefore ...

They have achieved their goal: We talk about it.

This will depend entirely on the output level from the DAC. If it is sufficient to drive the input of the PA, then you should be good, otherwise you'll want some kind of preamp before the PA input stage.

a phantom powering box You don't need that. The 1622-FX has a built-in Phantom power. You should ONLY use this if you have a condenser microphone that actually needs it. Dynamic mics are typically a lot cheaper and sturdier and don't need Phantom power. and one XLR cable What do you want to use it for ? even though it is a powered mixer. It's not. ...

Depends on the converter. When I enter '5.1 DAC' in Amazon's search box, the first couple of results are converters with only 2 RCA outputs. There are also DACs with 6 outputs (which is what you want), like this random example. These are designed to take audio encoded as DTS, AC3 or other 5.1 codecs. If you can supply that as a source, you're ok. You just ...

"but it seems to be bad way." could you clarify? This might help you. Note that the only difference in discrete WAVs is the channel order. Other than that, they are ordinary multichannel WAVs, only with more than 2 ch. However: Note: The surround format chosen here only alters the layout/routing of channels to speakers in the assignment section. The ...

You'll have to export stems for him. Or a whole bunch of consolidated audio files of each track. I use REAPER as well and if I was doing something like this I'd look at doing stems. Something along the lines of: - Dialogue - Atmos - Foley - SFX (possibly multiple stems here depending on the complexity of your design) - Music I'd ask him what he would like ...

Game developers use a software framework to manage dynamically rendered sound effects (dynamically meaning the sound designer cannot know in advance where this sound is supposed to come from or at which intensity as it depends on the way the game is played). This software framework is often called the audio engine. This software is able to determine which ...

Let's assume that what you call 5.1 Dolby is Dolby Digital (aka ac3 codec). That is what your receiver expects. 1 - Any s/pdif interface can output ac3 bitstream (it is part of the standard). 2 - As you want to output the ac3 bitstream, you shouldn't worry about the decoding in the interface. 3 - No 4 - I don't know You must in any case check that the ...

If a sound element has been directed in front height left by the sound mixer, why would you send it to a the rear left height speaker ? It would mess up the artistic intent of the mix.

Naaaaaaah...looks legit to me ;-)

After 15ms of just astounding joy, yeh it must be :P Although what really annoyed me, was they went to the lengths of saying its a lightening adapter, which isn't even true for the iXY (and god I want it to be)

Whislt I agree it's more a programming question than sound based I'll answer it from a Music Technician point of view. Short Answer Not easily. Slightly Longer Answer: Through hangouts itself you can't do it. To get access to all the feeds you'd either need to be at Google itself monitoring every source, then use a panning tool in a DAW or environment like ...

It is very difficult to produce a proper theater mix in a small studio. It is also usually not a good idea to deliver one common mix for theater, home-theater and two loudspeakers flat screen. Although your method of using some references tracks to setup levels is not wrong in itself, it is not possible to reproduce the perception of a large theater with a ...

It dépends of the recording : if it´s a nice mountain air , a subtle forest environment, large crowds or an interesting roomtone, i say yes : LCR, 5.0 are really convincing formats (for features, videogames...). But if mono or stereo recordings sounds better or more appropriate i will use and layer them to recreate a spatial environment, according to the ...

ProTools does have a built in surround panner, it has for a long time. Have you read the manual at all? It sounds like you already have a bias against ProTools without having actually used it all based on your 2nd question. You just have to have the 5.1 mixer installed and surround panning will work. Did you click on the small fader next to the volume ...

You cannot run SPDIF cables on an iMac , simply because SPDIF use RCA connectors .. Your data will get scrambled if you use an adapter on it. If you want to use 7.1 your iMac. The only way you can do it is with a significant quality AD/DA Convertor (Sound Card), which works a primary sound card for your iMac. Your iMac will generate outputs only based on ...

I've found in past experiences that 5.1 ambiences are great for a bed, but you would be best off with layering in some stereo tracks in order to create a wider sound field. The distinct stereo tracks will widen your soundscape, a 5.1 ambience doesn't have the same perceived width because you are sending very similar sound to all the speakers.

I recently made records in Vietnam in 5.1 also in the jungle. But 'Jungle' is a very wide term, so if you could be more specific, I can check if I have something for you. For example the jungle in Vietnam was very misty and quiet and completely different for example to a jungle in brazil. Also, if you are working now on the filmset, why are you not ...

Not sure why you use the term "faux" to characterize surround sound using two drivers, as it is actually a big research subject not only by academics but also by audio companies such as DTS. Have a listen to the Z+ Music app, by DTS, which was developed using a new technology they call Headphone X. It's far from perfect, but it sounds promising. Some ...
