Oh, so you think we finished to talk about mixing, right? Not at all!
In addition to all that bunch of stuff, there is also an in-depth course about all the formats for Film, TV, DVD, Blu-ray. You will explore hardware and software based encoding and decoding systems, and have a look at historically how the Surround Sound came to be. So you are going to learn stuff like Dolby formats, DTS, THX, audio/video compression formats, metadata, down-mixing concepts and so on…
Plus you need to learn about standard delivery audio specifications requirements for Film and Broadcast and… yes, lots of technical informations!
In addiction to a theoretical test, you are asked to mix a short movie and delivery it following specifications and requirements for broadcasters. This means you need to submit different mixes such as 5.1 and LtRt, as well as limited, unlimited and un-depth stems (eh?)…
Then you need to figure out how to setup your routing in Pro Tools, how and where to send your crazy signals, and print all your different mixes, hitting Record, just once! Tricky!!
As that was not enough, a very relevant issue to understand the concepts behind different monitoring configurations. You need to create a Dolby Surround monitoring session, using dolby encoders and decoders. The final goal is to have a session capable to switch between 5.1 and LCRS monitoring, and in which you can record surround and LtRt Mix.
Feel comfortable ASAP, because soon you will use it in the Dubbing System for your forthcoming mixes!!
