can anyone with experience help me out in deciding what might be a good solution for premixing and bouncing 5.1 Stems using headphones for Cinema Film Music to later fine tune all the stems in a real cinema stage ?
I have seen a lot of products which might help me out doing this:
- waves products (NX, Abbey Road Studio 3, Oceanways) being able to work in a 5.1 environment for headphones with head tracking.
- Ambisonics in Nuendo with custom HRTF (5.1 Downmix possible ?)
- Dolby Atmos Production Suite (5.1 Downmix possible ?) (And only working with Pro Tools ?) (Any headphones emulation software ?)
I have mixed some music in a cinema mixing stage many years ago and have learned that the X-Curve settings can also alter the music mix in larger mixing rooms.
There seem to be a lot of options and uncertain features of plugins (which is confusing me and I have mainly used stereo bounces for film music until now.
Any helpful hint would be appreciated.
Thanks a lot,
