    dolby digital is a lossy compression, and not a very good one ... it worked well for the time it came out, but now .... well, it\'s old! DTS sounds better .... and the market is turning more and more towards DVD-A (MLP encoding) and SACD (DSD encoding) ... well, at least for high resolution audio, or multi-channel audio.

    of course, DD is still the standard for film, etc.

    but for demoing purposes (not sure exactly what your intent is) ... it is better to have 6 seperate wav files so we can load them into our sequencers.

    6 wavs, definitely.
    Most people can do the encoding themselves if they work with these formats. Also, how are you going to edit them if they\'re already encoded?

    Lastly, giving people the seperate wavs also means it is easy adaptable to other surround formats (such as Dolby Pro Logic 2)

    What kind of lib are you working on? [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Cheers,

    You Sir, make perfect sense!

    I\'d rather not spam and/or spill beans.
    Also, this ideal is really in the baby stage right now.

    However, I did land my talent today. 55 people to be exact. <spilling bean [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] >

    Just to be contrary, I\'ll take three stereo wavs [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    One thing I\'ve never understood is why people would want the .1 part. Each playback system has its own subwoofer cutoff frequency. I would prefer to get five full bandwidth signals, HPF for the five mains, then sum and LPF for the subwoofer.

    How does the 5.1 producer/engineer know what crossover frequency my system has, or what my physical speakers require?

    I guess it makes sense for movies, where you use the sub as a special effects channel for explosions, but for music the .1 seems a bit weird. Then again, I\'m more of a 2.0 guy at heart.
