Multichannel Mixing for Streaming Services

15th February 2022 @ 15.00 - 16.30

How are music and film producers supposed to create a masterpiece when they have to cater to the artist, the label and the end-listener, without knowing how and where the audio will be consumed?

How are people listening? Apple lossless or Spotify? In a home cinema or on earbuds? It’s difficult to know what to prioritize with all these variables! 

Listen to some of the industry experts speak about how they are handling the spatial/immersive audio movement, how it affects their working processes and what they think the future holds.

Program

 

Morten Lindberg is a recording producer and balance engineer with 39 American GRAMMY-nominations since 2006, 31 of these in craft categories Best Engineered Album, Best Surround Sound Album, Best Immersive Audio Album and Producer of the Year. Founder and CEO of the record label 2L. Grammy Award-winner 2020.

About 2L: The beauty of the recording arts is that there is no fixed formula and no blueprint. It all comes out of the music. Every project starts out by digging into the score and talking with the composer, if contemporary, and the musicians. It is not our task as producers and engineers to try to re-create a concert situation with all its commercial limitations. On the contrary; we should make the ideal out of the recording medium and create the strongest illusion, the sonic experience that emotionally moves the listener to a better place. 

There is no method available today to reproduce the exact perception of attending a live performance. That leaves us with the art of illusion when it comes to recording music. As recording engineers and producers we need to do exactly the same as any good musician: interpret the music and the composer’s intentions and adapt to the media where we perform. Immersive Audio is a completely new conception of the musical experience. Recorded music is no longer a matter of a fixed one- or two-dimensional setting, but rather a three-dimensional enveloping situation. Immersive Audio is a sculpture that you can literally move around and relate to spatially; surrounded by music you can move about in the aural space and choose angles, vantage points and positions. Rather than reproducing a concert situation we consider the Recording Art a discipline on its own. It gives us the possibility to place the listener in an ideal position and become an actual party to the event. Thru a dedicated production of the music we can maximize energy, reveal all the small nuances and avoid disturbing distractions. The emotional impact can be made massive. The conductor’s position is the seat no audience can afford — until now with these dedicated recordings.
