- Mixing – Stereo mix, Dolby mix, Spatial mix
The essence of stereo lies in its simplicity – two distinct channels, left and right. Having two audios playing in left and right speakers gives you a wide variety of stereo field. The final product for any music on Spotify, Youtube or any streaming platform is majorly in stereo format. For example: a song that has vocals, drums, electric guitars, acoustic guitars is mixed in one stereo file in WAV or MP3.
Dolby Atmos was originally created for cinema sound. Following widespread theatrical adoption, this technology has filtered through into the Home Cinema environment for both film and TV content spanning drama, documentary, and live events. This is consumed over traditional TV broadcast, as well as online streaming platforms such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Apple TV+
5.1 and 7.1 mix
Starting with the revolutionary 5.1 mixing, we’ll uncover the magic of this format that has become synonymous with cinematic sound. Comprising five main channels – front left, center, front right, rear left, and rear right – along with a dedicated Low-Frequency Effects (LFE) channel, 5.1 immerses listeners in a sonic wonderland. We’ll explore how sound engineers expertly position audio elements within this soundscape, and how this setup enhances spatial awareness and brings movies to life like never before.
Building upon the foundation of 5.1, 7.1 mixing extends the audio canvas with an additional pair of surround channels – rear surround left and rear surround right. We’ll delve into how this added dimensionality elevates the surround sound experience, providing even greater precision and depth to audio placement. From action-packed blockbusters to thrilling video games, 7.1 soundscapes immerse audiences in the heart of the action, making them feel part of the story.
Stereo Mastering : where a single stereo mix file is mastered by a mastering engineer. Its a final check done by an experienced set of ears and points like translation of different devices and speaker, loudness etc are all enhanced
Stem Mastering : Stem mastering is done when you want to give more freedom for the mastering engineer to make changes without compromising other elements. Usually for stem mastering grouped mixed stems are sent where rhythm, melodic, harmonic, vocals and effects are printed on different tracks.
