Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up a surround mix template, part of Pro Tools: Audio for Film and Video.
Surround mixing has rapidly gone from being a big budget-only practice to…something, in my opinion, even the smallest project should be a tempting.…In this video we'll go over the specifics of the hardware, monitor arrangement,…and I/O setup for a 5.1 surround signal flow.…The first consideration for any surround mixing setup is the hardware.…You have to have the available outputs on your hardware interface, which would…be six for a 5.1 mix.…You also have to have five full range speaker monitors and one LFE or Low…Frequency speaker or subwoofer.…
Here's the proper way to configure those speaker monitors.…You should have a center speaker at 0 degrees from the mixing position, right in front, …and the right speaker should be 30 degrees off axis from that.…And going around, the right surround speakers should be 110 degrees from zero position.…These speakers should be ideally placed around the periphery of a circle, so…that each speaker is indetented in a little bit, angled towards the next position.…

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.
