  • 5.1 Audio monitoring when upgraded to FCS2

    Posted by Winston A. cely on September 13, 2007 at 4:37 pm

    Hi Gang,

    I’m looking to upgrade to the new suite in about six months (hopefully I’ll have the savings for it by then), but I want to do some research on what type of hardware I should invest in with the upgrade. Specifically in relationship to 5.1 Audio monitoring in FCP and STP.
    My signature shows my current setup.
    Also, with the new, great powers of FCS2, comes great responsibility…. (that didn’t quite work)…. and I’d like to read up on how to understand and utilize 5.1 audio. I’d like to know more about it before I start saying I can add it. What online resources do you guys use for this type of work? I prefer books to online, so are their any books you recommend? Obviously, I’m not an audio engineer, and don’t want to be. I have too much respect for what those people can do to get that far into it, but I would like to be able to communicate better with them, and at least set up the editing work I’ve done with the audio, to make their lives as easy as possible.

    Besides, I can’t wait to start creating projects with this awe inspiring new tool!

    Cheers!

    My experience with “surround” audio goes back to the early 70s when matrixed surround (SQ, and QS) for LPs was all the rage.

    George Lucas’ “Star Wars,” (1977) was one of the first films encoded with the new “Dolby Stereo” which kindled the desire for consumer mutli speaker surround playback.
    In 1982, Dolby launched “Dolby Surround

    WOW! This is the best response I’ve ever had to a question of this nature. I really do believe it’s important to at least be able to understand the fundamentals, and have the ability to at least monitor what others have done to truly offer the best experience to my clients. And this will help tremendous with that. Thanks for your in depth help!!!
