How does one go about generating an LFE channel for a 5.1 mix?
For example, I’d like to isolate the sub-80 Hz signal from my mono (phantom center, so technically stereo) kick drum audio track into the LFE channel. To this end, I’ve duplicated the kick drum audio track and, in the MultiPannner, turned up the “LFE Level” to 0.0 db. Works great - my kick drum (full frequency) is now summed to the LFE channel. However, the original L/R kick remains with no apparent way to mute it. Selecting any of the speaker icons succeeds in soloing that speaker, but there’s no such thing for the LFE. There’s a “box” icon at the bottom that looks like maybe its supposed to be a subwoofer, but clicking on it doesn’t solo the LFE channel.
Once I get the LFE channel 100% isolated, I can put a LPF on it and enhance it with processing.
Any advice is appreciated.
