Hi everyone,

who want to start with making of DVD-A, I would recoment this program:

<http://www.cirlinca.com/download.htm>

Start with "DVD-Audio Solo Standard", it´s not to difficult to use.
The advantage is,
- you have (a simple) menu for navigation and
- you can insert background-pictures.
- there is a trial-version and at least, it´s not so expensiv (opposite to "discwelder chrome").

The disadvantage is,
- you can NOT import .mlp - Streams (with all the consequences of bit-rate and -depth).

But it´s able to import 5.1 multicannel-files (I tried .wav) and has an own burning-engine.

It´s a bit better than the freeware (dvda-author) in my opinion.
It´s worth to try....

-razi-

And just for completeness sake, the Cirlinca information (not much, but some) is available on their website under the "How To" link:

We are very interested in supporting mac users but are a little short on experience so far. A quick google turned up this:

http://angelb.wordpress.com/2006/04/21/poor-mac-osx-mans-dvd-authoring-tool-sizzle/

I have not messed with iDVD. It doesn't do DVD audio/DTS?

Ok, please do not romp all over me here. I am a boring math and logic guy who just happens to be an audiophile.

I know nothing at all about what you guys do but am ready and willing to learn. I just downloaded Diskwelder and wanted to play with it to see if this is possible, and herein lies my question: "Is it possible to take Rolling Stones Gimme Shelter, for example, and remix it for 5.1 surround sound?

If so, what is the best (easiest and most efficient) software you can recommend.

See I did not disappoint. It is indeed a Stupid Question!

Thanks,

IncurableGeek :geek:

Well Mr Geek that's what this site is all about so you're in the right place.

You can't "re-mix", as in put the guitar over there and the snare drum over there, etc. but you can use the placement of instruments and vocals in the stereo and distribute them across 5.1 channels. We call that "converting" or "upmixing".

Take a look in the wiki section of the board for details.

As a math teaser, we move the stereo into the frequency domain with Phase Vocoder style FFTs and (at your choice) do either quadratic or trigonometric operations to turn the 2 ch. input into 5 ch. output (The .1 channel happens in the time domain) and then put it back in the time domain with inverse FFTs. Think about what would happen if you took the ArcTangent of the ratio of Left amplitude vs. Right amplitude (in each frequency bin), hint, hint...

Cheers,
Z

I just love answers that confuse me. That's how I learn. :?

Re: "You can't "re-mix", as in put the guitar over there and the snare drum over there, etc. but you can use the placement of instruments and vocals in the stereo and distribute them across 5.1 channels. We call that "converting" or "upmixing"."

How is that different from what my 5.1 Sony Amp does in "allocating" to 2 Klipsch floor standing speakers, Klipsch sub and 2 large Sony bookshelf speakers?

Damn, I'm sorry to take your time on this :!:

IG

Footnote (added late): Diskwelder is 32 bit and therefore not fully functional on Win 7 64 bit. Another choice possible.

Oh, and Thanks Z. It's people like you that make the net both fun and educational. :D
