    Call me a thicko, but...

    ...how do you record in 5.1? The only mics I know of are either mono or stereo. Do you have to sample from different sources?

    Haven''t used it myself but I remember seeing some screenshots where you take your audio (recorded, imported, created, whatever) and have configuration screen showing the speakers in each position. You then use the controls to assign the audio to the speakers, balance, pan, all the other bits and pieces. Obviously there's a lot more to it than this but without using it myself I can't be more specific.

    I do know the resulting audio is 100% DD5.1 compatible (and more importantly, permitted for commercial use).

    Fabulous. Don't listen to those people that put your quaint little NLE package down. I think it's just lovely.

    I use Premiere Pro 1.5.

    Now I get it (sound of a penny tumbling down). Just had a play with the multichannel encoder in Audition.

    It was one of those really old ones - the ones that were as big as your fist.
