I’m using Compressor 2, and trying to generate an AC3 Dolby 5.1 file that will work on both surround sound and 2-speaker setups. I’ve configured my Downmix controls so that the Center Downmix is at -6db and the Surround Downmix is at -infinity. Yet when I play the resulting DVD on every 2-speaker-system set-up I have–DVD Player on my Mac, the DVD/TV setup in my bedroom, even in Compressor itself–the surround track is distinctly playing at full-volume, when–by setting it to minus infinity–it shouldn’t be playing at all during the downmix.
Any ideas as to what’s going wrong here?
Please…desperate for an answer!
