SoundPool´s Surround Encoder encodes a four channel mix created by a mixer
capable of surround-panning (i.e. a surround mix with left, right, center
and surround channels) into a stereo audio file. The thus encoded
audio signal is storable just as normal stereo audio material on DAT, CD,
ADAT or cassette.
These recordings are then decodable by standard consumer-type surround decoders and played back on home surround hifi systems which reproduce the four surround channels (left, right, centre and surround) from the two encoded channels.
Encoding is done in real time. This makes it possible to feed the encoded signal directly into a decoder for studio monitoring purposes during production.
The surround encoder features an intuitive window-based operating surface. The main operating elements are six peak meters and six virtual faders.
