You are aware that you can set individual Room EQ and delay for the stereo pair's channels?
Ah yes! Quite right. The functionality is similar to how the ADI-2 EQ works for Dual mono. This then leaves the matter of individual speaker level calibration and also single speaker mute functionality.
Mutes could be handled on the playback outputs as could speaker level calibration but if like me you're working with a control surface this would then mean system volume control and mutes operate on 2 different levels of the Control Surface. Not ideal.
it's not that big an issue. Totalmix is perfectly capable now for this you simply avoid using the the control room section completely when monitoring 7.1.4 and use mono outputs but if you were to go to the bother of making TM aware of 12 or 16 channel monitoring in the Control Room there are still use cases where dual mono would matter for example if you wanted mute control over a single speaker rather than just be forced to work in pairs only.
Hey Paul, as discussed elsewhere (I think) I mentioned how I was using GingerAudio Sphere, in conjunction with Totalmix. This will change slightly for me, **if and when we get the new speaker calibration. I'll try an explain how I cover those things you mention above.
The following is all "at the moment" but may change**
This is mixing in Dolby ATMOS with Pro ToolsUlt.
1. ProTools driver --> Dolby Audio Bridge --> Dolby Atmos Renderer*** --> this is where the fun starts. (first 12 channels 7.1.4 go to Input D of SPHERE, the next 6 go to Input E 5.1 re-render, Input F Stereo LoRo foldown re-render and then the next 2 binaural re-render).
2. The Main output of SPHERE (with SoundID Multichannel) goes to Totalmix. Now I have Totalmix sit at my room calibration level (-14dB on the fader linked main), then I have the SPHERE Alt (with a stereo SoundID) set to go to AES Totalmix which got directly to my Barefoot MM27s for stereo work.
Inidividual Speaker Mutes are handled on the Eucon monitoring page (driving SPHERE) of AVID Control.
My Logic setup is completely different and uses a similar setup for 7.1.4, but has a bypass using SourceNexus to bypass all of that for Low Latency recording.
Like I said elsewhere, I will try and make a video (not my field of expertise), where it would be much easier to explain.
Happy to have a chat Paul, on the phone or FaceTime, especially given we're in similar timezones, :-)
