My setup is 7.1.4, and I’m wanting to first add four objects to my mix which will serve as TFL, TFR, TLS and TRS speakers (the standard Atmos bed only has two height inputs, so for what I’m trying to do I’m ignoring them for now - and I created four objects that will serve as individual height inputs for the four corners.) So far so good.
My goal is to pan the stereo pad between the front and rear height objects, preserving LR integrity in the process. To try to simplify the panning while keeping the sound in stereo as it moves from front to back, I created a group with quad input and sent the pad stereo track to it, and created the pan automation there. So far, so good, I’ve got the track panning forward and back in the quad group.
Here’s where I get lost - I need to send the quad height group output to the individual objects - and I’m not sure how to do that easily. Basically, the whole idea here is to be able to use four objects to allow discreet front and rear stereo height speakers to be used/activated if the listening environment has such a setup. If the listener doesn’t have individual height speakers for each corner, the signal would be downmixed via Atmos to the two standard height channels, which I’m ignoring/not trying to place sound in for now in this scenario, btw).
What essentially I’m trying to do is to pair or group objects to act as their own field - in this case, a “height field” - and then send stereo tracks to that field and then move them forward or back. Thanks in advance for trying to help me figure out this puzzle!
