This week’s MTF masterclass was on one of the most crucial aspects of your production, sound. Themed mixing for surround sound, the class touched on hooks and tricks that producers can utilise to perfect their craft with sub-topics such as Surround Audio Mixing for fiction/Post Produced content, technicalities, and the creative elements to mention a few.
Hosted by Vikram Joglekar, a senior content manager at Dolby Labs and Quinton Schmidt, a senior manager operator partnership at Dolby Labs, the technical yet easy to follow through video is for everyone, whether you have been mixing in surround for a while or are just getting started, this session will help you identify creative rules to follow when mixing in surround.
The lesson that uploaded on the MTF website concluded with the hosts sharing the much important sound mixing recipes:
“ Less is more, to make something loud you need to have something quiet as a reference, watch the image you are mixing to while mixing, not your workstation and finally, the quality of the mix depends on the quality of the ingredients we bring to it, apart from the skill, experience
and creativity of the mixing team,”
