Mix Studio Panel: Mixing, Mastering and Distributing Immersive Music
Since its industry-wide emergence three years ago, immersive music has mostly meant immersive music mixing, and engineers have been left largely on their own in figuring out the new technologies, workflows and creative possibilities. Right away, they found that the care and attention to deliverables—in multiple formats, for multiple streaming services—was proving more complex and taking up a lot more time than first imagined. At the same time, mastering engineers and distributors/streamers have been working out the kinks and developing new workflows, to ensure that consumers hear a true representation of the immersive intent, whether in 7.1.4 or in “binaural” over a pair of headphones.
