Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video Calibrating for 5.1 surround mixing and bass management, part of Pro Tools: Audio for Film and Video.
In this movie we'll address calibrating your 5.1 monitor system and how to…effectively base manage so you're hearing what your audience will hear.…We will be using the Wave 360 plug-in suite, an industry-standard tool for…software-based management.…The concept of calibrating the 5 surround monitors is very similar to the stereo…calibrations concept we learned in the stereo levels calibration video.…You still need an SPL meter set to c weighting slow response and you will play…pink noise out of each speaker to measure it.…So here we'd set our Tones track to output first on the Output.L, the first…channel, and we play the pink noise.…
(Buzzing, white noise)…And we'd use our SPL meter to calibrate the output of that speaker.…Remember, you want to calibrate at 85 dBSPL for large film style mix in a large…room, 82 for a small mixing room for a film mix, and 78 or 79 for small mixing…rooms when you're mixing for DVD, internet or broadcast.…So you're going to go through each speaker.…First you do Output Left, then Output Center.…

Q: This course was updated on 4/04/12. Can you tell me what changed?
A: This update was initiated when Avid released Pro Tools 10. It explains that this course can be taken with either Pro Tools 9 or 10 (the exercise files are compatible with both), and we also added movies that explore the enhanced clip-based gain and Audio Suite features in Pro Tools 10, both of which are useful when building a soundtrack.
