In the same way I did with the Rob Bridgett Special, you have the opportunity to ask your own questions to Andrew Lackey. There are several ways to do that:
- Leave a comment on this post
- Use the contact form
- Write to designing sound [at] gmail [dot] com
The deadline for questions is until December 20 and the answers will be published on the final post of the special. Andrew will choose and answer any questions that he want. Note that all questions will be considered, but not all will have to be answered.
I have technical question regarding monitor placement and stereo imaging. In most studios (like my own) the monitors are some distance to the left and right of my two computer monitors, where most of the time on the right one the movie is displayed.
When I have a scene of somebody walking from left to right, I tend to pan the footsteps from hard left to hard right. But too my ears, somebody is walking from the left of my studio to the right, outside the screen borders.
How do you deal with this problem? If it’s for television, do you mix as if the speakers are right next to the screen? And do I need additional speakers right next to one computer screen to check the stereo image?
