Chapter 13. Mixing Surround > About Child Busses

About Child Busses

It's common when working with a surround mix to want to route a track or tracks to only specific speakers in the surround configuration. For example, in film mixing, the center channel is used almost exclusively for dialogue by on-screen characters, so it's useful to be able to route a track directly to that speaker without having to spend time panning it. Similarly, you may have a stereo delay or reverb effect that you want to use only in the rear surrounds and in no other speakers.

You can do this with Cubase by using a child bus. A child bus is simply a subset of the main bus, used so you can select a specific part of the surround setup for routing your audio. The following example creates a child bus for the rear surround speakers only.
