Audio and Surround Tool

Creating Surround Sound From Stereo Source

V6 will create 5.1 Surround Sound AC3, WAV or DTS audio from your stereo audio by first generating 6 discreet audio channels, then assembling those 6 channels into 5.1 AC3, DTS or WAV Surround Sound audio file with proper Left Front, Center, Right Front, Subwoofer, Left and Right Rear channels. Each channel is optimized and equalized for 5.1 surround sound including rear channel delay, center channel voice equalization and lfe subwoofer frequencies isolated for true surround sound

Once the process completes you will have the following new files in the selected output directory – lf.wav, center.wav, rf.wav (for left, center and right front channels), lfe.wav (for the subwoofer channel), lr.wav & rr.wav for the rear channels

Stereo Audio to 6 Mono Channels

Click the Mode Selector to select Stereo Audio to 5.1 Mono Channels then select any stereo audio file to create 6 discreet mono files to use for 5.1 surround sound processing. Setup the Output Directory at the bottom of the interface and Render New Audio to create the mono files. Your new audio clips will be located in the Output Directory

5.1 from 6 mono channels

Next, create the surround sound file from your 6 new channels

If not already selected, click the Mode Selector to select 6 Mono Channels to 5.1 Surround. If you have just finished creating 6 mono channels from a stereo source, the input directory is already set to the location you saved your files to. The easiest way to load files into the tool is by clicking on each speaker icon (in the right-hand panel) and selecting the file of the same name – you will see the filenames populate the source fields. Be sure to maintain the proper order – lf, rf, center, lfe, lr & rr as other configurations will not work properly. You can also drag-and-drop audio files into each text field as well

Once your mono channels are loaded, click ‘Render Audio’ to display the file save dialog and create a surround-sound audio file. You can select .ac3, .wav or .dts

Media Merge Tool

The Media Merge Tool is designed to merge a video clip with an audio clip to create a new video. Use the right-click context-sensitive menu or drag-and-drop an audio and video clip into the interface to begin

Select from Original Source video, M2TS, MKV, MTS or MP4 HQ formats for final output. If Original Source is selected, the output video will contain the original source material and does not require re-encoding. This makes or a very fast process

Audio Clip Length

Use the Surround Tool to create a properly trimmed audio track for your project with fade-in and fade-out, then add that audio track to your video clip using the Media Merge Tool. The interface provides duration info for both video and audio inputs to easily spot length mis-matches

Typical session – audio duration is longer than video

Load video and audio into the Media Merge Tool to check respective duration of each clip. Next, load the longer audio clip into the Audio and Surround Tool and set the Trim Length to the duration of your video clip. You can fade in and out the audio clip by checking the Fade In and Fade Out checkboxes and setting the length of fade (in seconds) in the text field provided
