Surround sound is something I am just beginning to think about also. Are there any suggestions for links to recording directly in surround sound?

On the subject of DVD Studio Pro, if you are a student you can get a very good price on it and there is a new version coming out in a week or two. Staying with Apple Mac, in Logic Pro 7 you work with surround sound. Collages usually have rooms of macs in the arts/multimedia areas, might be worth a look at what is available within your school.

-0400<br>&gt;<br>&gt;<br>&gt; I was wondering if someone could shed some
light on the current possibilities<br>&gt;that lie in the area of DTS and
Dolby encoding and DVD authoring suites which<br>&gt;allow for surround DVD
audio playback. From what I have so far uncovered it<br>&gt;seems that
surround encoding plug-ins and standalone software is still
beyond<br>&gt;the reach of a non-profit, personal studio owning, poor
student types such as<br>&gt;myself. Is anybody aware of a relatively cost
effective method of producing<br>&gt;high resolution surround audio DVD's? I
suppose the best way is probably<br>&gt;getting copies made by specialized
companies (Like Minnetonka) which charge on<br>&gt;a per DVD basis but I
would be interested to know if anyone is aware of any
new<br>&gt;<br>&gt;technology which has brought the ability to produce
surround DVD audio to the<br>&gt;prosumer level. Thanx.<br>
