    I sometimes use a dedicated LFE channel, but more often I will just use a send to route the signal to an aux with a subharmonic synthesizer followed by a low pass filter. If I use a dedicated LFE channel, I never just copy a full range sound effect to it, instead I use a unique sound that has only low frequency content. I always make sure that whatever is feeding the LFE is unique from what is feeding the front speakers (using a sub harmonic synthesizer significantly alters the sound) and low passed, otherwise, when you create the LtRt print master and the LFE channel is inserted into the front speakers it may phase or else make the normal effect too loud without adding the low frequency as originally intended.

    Hey man,

    Been second guessing myself lately on the LFE channel question and wanted to pick your brain for a quick bit.

    I'm hearing most use a dedicated channel in their template, instead of sending the material via the suround panner LFE fader. Cool. On that channel, when let's say copying a gun shot or explosion there, do you have an RTAS plug on the channel actively low pass filtering, so when printing it's like 80hz and under?

    I'm curious becuase the channel obviously shouldn't be full range and it should be used sparingly I know, but where in a typical workflow does the limiting happen?

    thanks man for the help.
