    Is there any advantage to mix, and or process the center channel information on a seperate bus?

    Hi Rick!...Been missing you on ICQ....have some session work going on...

    Yes...I feel that to have the center on a separate bus makes sense. I use completly different compression and eq for the center...I keep my low frequency sharply cut at 70 hz and down and limit the top to about 11K. I process it altogether differently and watch the phase relationship between the center, the front corners and the sides (7.1).

    Depending on the program I will allow some pretty stiff headroom on the center channel...and plenty of noise reduction...but not gated.

    We can talk more about specifics as time allows.
