that's a good point! cos the surround speakers are usually close to or just behind the couch. That's true.
Man I'm actually having a nightmare with this mix.
I started in PT but I don't have the Complete Production Toolkit... so cant do surround.
Been fighting to get everything up and running in Logic and keep as much of the work I've done intact. Hoped that AAF might work but no... bizzare results. AAF seemed to work into Soundtrack Pro, seemed to keep the volume automation, but working in that program felt like trudging through the mud... So then tried to export files into Logic... after more bizarre errors I eventually resorted to OMF straight into Logic from PT.
THEN after all of that, Logic seemed to be doing it, surround sound shaping up, but I realized that somehow the master bus is in Stereo!!! despite playing out surround. So no possibility of bouncing out surround files. Grrr.
Very weird, it's not behaving as the Help files say.
So I'm just going back into PT, and i'll have to do the surround in someone's studio, where they have HD. Gonna cost me
Will have to look into buying the upgrade eventually, would love to have it as i'm getting fond of PT, would like to do music in it also.
