  1. Hi everyone just a quick question: I dont have enough money to fully set up a surround sound workstation so currently I am making do with my two genelecs and headphones, So I have been looking into Waves NX and also Flux Ircam HEar v3 as a way to send out rough 5.1 mixes, just using headphones, has anybody had experience with either one and if so is it good enough to mix thoroughly or is it only a good guide, I would like to know which is best and if there are any other plugins I should be aware of as well. Thanks.
  2. 5.1 Surround downmix

    Hello All, Question about 5.1 surround sound. I would like to know if I were to purchase a 5.1 system and only used a 3.1 system ( Left, Center, Right, Sub ) would the downmix sound bad? or would it work at all? and anything else I should know before attempting this. Thanks in advance.
  3. Howdy Gents, So I'm potentially going off in April to Brazil to shoot part of a documentary and I was thinking I'd like to grab a bunch of surround Ambiences of the Rain Forest, and multiple other locations that I'd later use in the final mix (I'm also the post editor/mixer for these films. The budget precludes the production from actually ponying up for the cost of a really nice surround config such as Schoeps OCT Surround setup so I'm trying to do one on a shoestring budget that I could absorb the cost on my own. What have you done to achieve decent quality recordings that you're happy with? I was thinking of building my own mic tree mount system then buying some reasonably priced mics to populate it. Any input would be greatly appreciated! John
  4. Hello Everyone I am a Pro Tools user that mixes primarily TV spots and corporate videos. I have done 3 feature-length projects, and I am now looking to step my game up to the world of Pro Tools HD and learning to mix in 5.1. I will be using a new mac pro 6-core with PT HD Native (connected via Thunderbolt) along with the HD omni interface. I have a big question as to which speaker system I should select for monitoring my mixes. For stereo mixes, I have been using Yamaha HS-50m's, and they have been great for me. The EQ response is nice and flat, and my mixes always translate well. If I get a good mix on the yamaha's, the mix sounds appropriate from every playback system from consumer-based home theater setups to an iPhone. This is something that I do not want to lose. Does anyone have any suggestions for some quality studio monitors to do surround mixing with? Also, I'm wondering if I should take the outputs of the HD omni and go straight into the 5.1 monitors, or, should I run the outputs of the HD omni into a small analog mixer, and then output 6 discrete channels from the mixer into the speakers. I figure that helps with calibrating each speaker's output volume so that pink noise registers at 82 dB at the mix position, but I am not sure if this is the best way, or necessary. What do you guys think? Thank you.
  5. So I have a project coming up in a few months (probably more like 6), that will require at least a 5.1 surround mix. I have Protools 10 native with the Complete Production Toolkit unlocked. I want to be able to encode the data stream for a blu ray and for a DVD as well. I see a bunch of encoders such as DTS encoder, Neyrinck Soundcode for DTS, Neyrinck Soundcode for Dolby E, etc. Bear in mind I know very little about the plugin I need to select (I have only done limited surround mixing in my past. Thanks for any suggestions you can give me.
  6. Maggot Spanner Software Spanner is a powerful surround channel manager, panner, remapper and folddown plugin for AVID Pro Tools. It is the result of years of personal frustration with the Pro Tools panner and bussing setup and solves many of the common complaints about the surround workflow in Pro Tools. If you ever work in surround you'll appreciate this plugin I'm sure, but if mixing-in-the-box is your thing you're going to see this as a major step forward. True surround panner Functions as an upgrade to the standard surround panner, giving complete, independent control over each channel in a more practical single plugin interface. each input channel is represented as a coloured dot in the panfield which can be used to control 5 key parameters. panning around the 2 dimensional space is taken care of by just 2 parameters, Pan(left-right) and Fad(front-back) so you won't have to wrestle with dozens of unwanted parameters. Up and down-sizes multiple track formats Spanner can upsize or downsize all common track formats to multiple different output formats, allowing you to actually 'pan' an LCR or quad into the 7.0 mix bus or temporarily send a 7.1 stem out of a 5.1 bus for monitoring purposes. Infinitely flexible folddown with Audiosuite support Spanner has complete, continuous control over input gain and channel position and so can function as a down-mixer in whatever configuration you choose. presets are provided for standard folddown types but you always retain control of the details of the down-mix. support for 7.1 to 5.1-or-smaller downmixing is supported for both realtime and offline (Audiosuite) processing, meaning faster-than-realtime folddown is now possible. Pre-fade lfe send The Lfe channel is treated just like any other input channel and can be piped into the main 5 channel panfield independent of it's level to the Lfe output. likewise, any input channel can be sent pre-fade to the Lfe output and removed from the main 5 channel mix if needed. the upshopt of this is that we no longer need dedicated 'sub' tracks to create a signal destined for the Lfe channel, just automate a spanner to send the signal to Lfe only. Panner window follows track selection When using Eucon controllers spanner will follow the currently selected track, just like the default EQ or dynamics. you have the option of calling up a plugin type from the surface and as you navigate around your tracks, Eucon will call up the relevant spanner instance so you can see and work with pans much more quickly than with the default panner. Post-pan meters in mix and edit windows With a spanner inserted, you can quickly and easily see where things have been panned by glancing at the Pro Tools meters. if something has been accidentally panned to the right surround you can see it clearly even with very small track sizes. Double-precision, low CPU overhead Despite it's smoothed parameters and double-precision internal processing, spanner is efficient enough to run on every channel in your session. even modest macs can run hundreds of instances and still have plenty of room for your usual plugin set. Supported track formats input: mono, stereo, LCR, quad, 5.0, 5.1, 7.0, 7.1 output: mono, stereo, LCR, quad, 5.0, 5.1, 7.0, 7.1 audiosuite: stereo, LCR, quad, 5.0, 5.1, 7.0, 7.1 New authorisation system Spanner employs maggot's new authorisation system which is aimed at providing a degree of security to the software while giving the user a fair amount of flexibility. The software can be authorised to the local machine or to any reasonably modern USB thumb-drive which can then be moved to other machines, much like a hardware dongle. 3 authorisations are allocated to each purchase which are described as 1 license and 2 backups authorisations in case of hardware failure. each time an authorisation is made, the internet must be visible in order for maggot to verify the authenticity of the application.
