An increasing number of sound system designers are implementing multi-channel (primarily Left/Center/Right) sound reinforcement systems for both permanent installation, touring and show applications.

Mixing techniques will be discussed and demonstrated through the use of auralizations. Basic mixing guidelines will be outlined.
