This is my first post on these forums that has been recommended to me by the kvraudio folks on the particular topic (Sean Costello from Walhallasounds among others)
Because i'm highly interested in the built of a list of effects that handle surround diffusion in 5.1 format because i have now an equipment that can handle this particular one
(iMac with i7 intel core processor, DMX6Fire usb Terratec audio interface, Logitech 5.1 speakers system,
Logic Pro 9)
this sub forum seems the more appropriate for these question , i apologize if i'm wrong !
As you can see no hi-end technologies for the peculiar purpose, but i might do the job with this...
I'm aware that it is almost impossible to create as home-studist, the appropriate environment to reach movie broadcast criteria
But i will be mainly focused on making surround mix for african/fusion production, with musicians and singers i'm working with part of my time in Bobo-dioulasso/Burkina Faso
Eventually the creation of video clips in the future, but there are no real need for accurate
"sound and image" locations, for instance just with some luck and some skills the creation of innovative styles adapted to african modern music
...and soundtakes of traditional bands (i've bought a ZOOM H2 handy recorder that handles quadriphonic soundtakes that could be converted in 5.1)
So about audio and audio instrument plugin i know that absynth, the play engine from easiest and the uhbik series from u-he handle surround format, but i do not know much effects other than for creative purpose (like the uhbiks) that handles 5.1 in AU format
- Any suggestions for appropriate mixing and mastering tools in 5.1 AU ?
- and BTW can you indicate me a soft that might convert the quadriphonic format handled by the zoom h2 handy recorder (front L/R + rear L/R) into 5.1 format ?
- THANKS IN ADVANCE !!!!
