Lesson 14. Working with Surround Sound > Using the Surround Control

Using the Surround Control

This is where the real fun begins! By default, tracks in Logic assign themselves to stereo outputs. You will need to redirect them to your surround output. Once you assign them, you will want to control which of the speakers each track is heard from. This is done by way of a Surround control. The concept of the Surround control is similar to that of the Pan control; it's just a little more complex. The Surround control has to distribute sound not only between the left and right positions, but also between the front and back positions. Don't worry—it's pretty simple to understand once you get into it.

Displaying a Surround Control

You've used the stereo Pan control in all the other lessons, but this control is not sufficient for mixing surround sound. Now you'll convert the stereo Pan control in the channel view of each track to a Surround control.
