Surround Routing Options

Surround Routing Options

When working with surround buses, both as input and output, many routing options are available. Depending on which routing option you choose, several pan control options will be available. Table E.1 offers a quick look at the surround signal routing options and the types of pan control each routing option offers.

Table Table E.1. Surround signal routing options
Source Destination Pan Control
Mono To single channel inside the surround bus None, the output channel is mono and will be heard in the associated ASIO device port.
Mono To child bus inside the surround bus Will be handled as a standard stereo or multichannel, depending on the child bus configuration. The pan might affect the surround position or any other location, depending on the current parent bus configuration. For example, if the bus is in 5.1 (6-channels) and the child bus set as an LCR subset (3-channels), the channel will display the Surround Panner to control the location. On the other hand, if your child bus is Stereo (Left/Right), the mono channel will be panned within the left/right spectrum (not surround panned, but part of the surround configuration).
Mono To surround bus The Surround Panner positions the signal anywhere within the current surround bus configuration.
Stereo To stereo child bus inside the surround bus Same as with mono signal sent to a stereo child bus (see above).
Stereo To surround bus The Surround Panner positions the signal anywhere within the current surround bus configuration.
Surround Surround No pan control; all channels will play in the same channel as they came in from. You should avoid sending a multichannel input signal configuration into another multiinput signal configuration or into a mono or stereo output bus. For example, avoid sending a 5.1 multichannel input signal into an LCRS output bus. Doing so will result in loss of sound positioning precision.
