From the Symposium on Auditory Perspective to Walt Disney’s Fantasia, surround sound in cinema has gone through many iterations from analog to digital. The transition from stereo to surround sound can be tricky. Having front and rear loudspeakers requires the mixer to understand a few basics of psychoacoustics, but the benefits are exciting. Leslie Gaston-Bird provides an overview of how to mix for formats including 5.1.
