I am trying to create my film soundmix on a less than ideal home studio setup. I'm looking to get a reference movie or film soundmix file that I could place into Final Cut Pro and use to calibrate my monitor and compare to my soundtrack. I have tried to calibrate my setup using -20dB pink noise and SPL meter to set them to 75dB as recommended by many but I'd prefer to have a real world sample. An idea sample would have a -20dB reference tone in the head so I could make sure it is playing at proper level within the application.
Does anyone have a professional movie file or final soundmix film with a -20dB tone in front they could point me to?
Thanks for your reply. Yes, I can generate the tone. I think my post may have been confusing. I'm actually looking for a finished professional movie soundtrack with a -20dB tone in the header if such a thing exists. That way I could put the soundmix into my timeline and compare it to my own and also use it to calibrate my monitor settings. Thanks,
Doubt youll find that.
The pink noise is rotated in sequence around the room by a panner calibration set up. not by putting it on a timeline.
also youll need an sound pressure level meter, not your ears
