What is split audio?
on Apr 25, 2008 at 3:15:05 pm

I'm being asked by a producer at ABC for a portion of my documentary film on beta SP with split audio.

What goes on which channel?

What I have right now is a 5.1ch surround mix and stereo LtRt, everything mixed together for playback at a theater.

I have a feeling that split audio means something more along the lines of VO and dialog on ch1, M&E on ch2 and so on.

Could someone provide some examples? (I'm new to video production in general, but completely new to broadcast!!) I suppose I'll need to ask my sound editor to make the appropriate tracks.

Generally in a simple split track setup, the dialog & VO would go on channel one and the music and effects go to channel two. If stereo imaging must be maintained we normally put dialog & vo in channels 1/2 and the music & EFX on channels 3/4 in stereo.
Each outlet may be different. Ask the distributor exactly what they need for their production.
