    Surround output matrix in the environment
    Following the instructions in your dvd on configuring the surround output matrix in the Environment you state that you can create " a new audio object" . This item, audio object, does not appear in Logic 8. Can you advise on how to create this? Gary

    Ok... I see, it's in the Logic for Video editor tutorial. You don't need to do this anymore in Logic 8. As soon as you set a channel strip to surround (by selecting surround in the I/O section of a channel strip), the master fader is automatically set to surround. It's easier now with Logic 8!

    Christian, Thank you for your reply. Further questions are: When I bounce in surround sound I only end up with two files. Compressor has a grid for 6 audio files. How do I create my surround song into 6 separate audio files. Thanks, Gary

    Hi Gary, Make sure your output channels are set to Surround and go to File > Bounce... In the Bounce window select "File Type" as [i]split[/i] and make sure "Surround Bounce" is ticked. Cheers Rounik

    Hello Rounik, I have done as you stated and I still only end up with 2 AIFF files " Surround R and Surround L ". My audio preferences were set at 5.1 surround,and in bouncing I used split file type and ticked the surround bounce box. Should I be using PCM as the destination format? Please help. Thanks, Gary

    Hi Gary, Yes, PCM should be the destination. The settings I use are: Aiff or wave 24 bit sample rate of your project Split file type Surround Bounce On. Try unticking MP3 and other destinations. Does it work now? Rounik

    Hello Ruinik, I have tried all of the above. I continue to bounce just two l and r aiff files. I am totally at a loss. Gary

    Hi Gary, I've been puzzling over this, and think I may have found the reason... Are you using an audio interface with just stereo outputs or the built-in audio? I switched my setup to using the built-in audio and could only bounce a surround project into two separate L and R files. Best, Rounik

    Yes, I am using the built in audio. How does this impact on it? What would I need to do to correct this? Thanks, Gary
