K.K. Proffitt, Chief Engineer of JamSync, conducted a comprehensive 5.1 panning demonstration at the recent Nashville Association of Professional Recording Studios (NAPRS) Surround Sound Workshop.

Starting with scores of independent sound elements, she created a complex environment of moving sounds and effects employing ProTools and Sigma 1 software.

"There is a lot more to creating a 5.1 mix than just moving the sounds around. I have developed some techniques using EQ, delay and reverb to make it into a fluid environment", Proffitt said.

JamSync is Nashville's first purpose-built surround sound mix room in Nashville following THX home theater guidelines.
