    Just wondering if there are enough people on this forum mixing in 5.1 to merit a section on this?

    I was talking to one of my buddies a short time ago. He had just gotten back from the UK, where he was assisting on the DVD 5.1 remix of Quadrophenia. He was tapped for the gig because he was the FOH soundman for that tour, back in the day. Nobody else today (even Pete) had any idea how to approach it with justice.

    I feel like these days 5.1 is in a similar place to early stereo. Remember the early stereo Beatles records? Vocals in one channel and instruments in the other. eventually engineers realized what stereo was for; creating space. I believe 5.1 is just an elaboration of that concept and thats what most music mixers are missing.
