    Question OT: reference of orchestra in 5.1?

    Hey folks - back when I was doing a review of the DTS encoder for Nuendo, I checked out a few commercial titles that were mixed in several surround formats - but none were orchestral.

    I'm starting to play with a new reverb unit (RaySpace) and am playing with mixing in the "dry" and wet signal while trying to preserve some form of proper balance.

    Can anyone recommend a good orchestral recording in 5.1? It can be in DVD-Audio or DTS/Dolby as the case may be. Extra points for anyone that can point me to a recording the includes antiphonal instruments, such as brass or rear registers of a pipe organ.

    When Tower Music was in business, they had a few cases stocked with surround and hi-res audio titles that might have fit the bill, but I'm somewhat left without a place to look (at least that I know of).

    Thanks!

    A few of Jerry Goldsmith's later titles were released on SACD 5.1 channels, among those are "Star Trek: Nemesis" and the rejected "Timeline"

    Houston, for isolated film scores on conventional DVD, you can check out this list: http://www.treuherz.de/ralf/scores/dvdlist.htm. Many are in DD 5.1. This should give you a leg up as you may have some of these already!

    What's nice about the AIX discs is that the DTS tracks are a "Stage Mix". That is, the surrounds are used for more than just ambiance. Nearly all classical surround discs use the surrounds for ambiance only.

    Funny - AIX Records is about 400 yards from where I used to live in Westwood. Small world.
