RE: emmersive sound
I'd like to thank everyone for their input on this thread, and report that
I've come up with a sound system that I feel works very well. Briefly
are 2 integrated system.
1) The 'core sound' is monoral, but split high/low frequencies, into a
high-quality amp/cabs (for my Stick or bass, or other fullrange sounds).
The core sound is split high freq/low freq. using a Rane DC-24
comp/lim.(which has a very cool crossover feature!). So the core sound can
have effects added, or can be bi-amped.
2) The 'ambient sound' is stereo and/or dual mono. I use this for a wet FX
mix (stereo reverb, chorus, spacey) and separate treatment of the
bass/melody sides of my Stick). I play this through relatively
small speakrs at low volumes.
This system produces lots of ability to dial in the sound quality, and
creates a very detailed high-definition sound and lots of 'space' and
emmersion through the stereo mix. By using 3-4 different cabs/amps,
Left/Right, High/Low, the possibilities are really wonderful. This saved me
from buying two high-end amp/cabs and provides even more sonic
Routing: Bass/Melody into 2channel RaneSP-13preamp. Use AuxSends after EQ
to route the channels to effects, and into channels of a mackie mixer. The
"Mono" mode of the SP-13 sums the Bass/Melody channels at the Outputs. One
of the summed outputs is fed into the RaneDC-24 comp/lim in its
mode, highs/lows are treated as desired and OutputA ->highs, OutputB->lows.
These can be sent to mixer, or to a premap for the core sound.
thanks everyone for sharing your ideas,

Wow, some cool ideas. My band has wanted to play around with surround sound
someday. (We look forward to
be able to release a 5.1 audio DVD when we can afford to do such things.)
Anyway, this thread made me think of the Behringer Edison. I have never
it so I cant speak from
experience but it claims to be able to process a stereo image to create a
'3D' sound field by generating
a controllable virtual 3rd center speaker.
Maybe not applicable to Qua's needs but someone might have fun with such a
