Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video Downmixing, encoding, and using Neyrinck plug-ins, part of Pro Tools: Audio for Film and Video.
Your surround mixes might sound great in your 5.1 equipped studio, but with all…the flexibility of Pro Tools, you might need to work on them when a six channel…speaker setup just isn't possible.…Downmixing is the concept of folding down your 5.1 mixes into less channels.…In this movie we'll explore how to take a 6-channel surround mix and downmix…it to monitor and stereo using the Neyrinck surround tool that come with a…complete production toolkit.…The mix of this project has a few surround mix moves going on in it.…If you wanted to listen in two channel stereo like we are now, we would miss some…of the surround mix moves that are happening.…

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.
