Hi Guys, an editor friend of mine asked me a question and I promised to look into it, maybe some of you can help?
In AVID he uses 4 Mono-Channels of Audio. Ch 1 is Dialogue, Ch 2 is Atmo, Ch 3+4 are Music Left and Right.
All Channels are routed to two Mono Output Cannels 1+2 which add up to a stereo Output Channel panned left and right on an outboard mixer.
Ch1+3 (Dialogue+Music Left) are routed to Output Channel 1 (Left) and Channels 2+4 (Atmo+Music Right) are routed to Output Channel 2 (Right).
In this configuration he listens to the music in stereo but the Dialogue is hard left and the Atmo is hard right. When he pans the dialogue to the mid inside of AVID he loses 3db of Level. How can that be?
Obviously Audio Routing in AVID works a little different from Nuendo so I have no clue how to solve this problem for him. He needs to listen to the dialogue and the atmo from the mid and the music in stereo so he can do a mix of all channels that also works when he gives all four mono stems to the voice overdub studio, they work on pro tools.
