Chief Engineer KK Proffitt and her partner, Joel Silverman, introduced Stephen Webber's students to multi-channel audio in JamSync's new control room on Nashville's Music Row. Playing discrete 5.1 mixes of material, courtesy of DTS, they showed the differences between the current mixing and monitoring styles.

Proffitt showed some of JamSync's proprietary techniques to up-mix existing stereo material to 5.1 channels and also demonstrated down-mixing 5.1 discrete to a two-channel-matrixed LT, RT Dolby Pro Logic- compatible signal.

JamSync's transfer room was another highlight for the students. They saw the collection of different analog formats from 1/4" 4-track, 1/2" 8-track to 2" 24-track. Proffitt explained about some of the synchronization problems that they could encounter in transferring multi-channel analog to ProTools|24..
