with all the layers of speakers working together to make a more precise sound field. Certainly you can better flesh out anything in a sound field if you have more speakers (and software) to help create the image. This is my biggest potential gain in adding Trinnov to my system.
Are you experimenting with Trinnov to be "like Atmos"? Trinnov and Atmos may seem similar because they both add speakers, but Atmos is an entirely different process, much more sophisticated with respect to surround sound effect, no?
I am (of course) still trying to understand, but it seems Atmos uses object-oriented mixing that layers sound effect in precise location - the info is in the software, and reproduces the sound with speakers in location as specified by software, whereas Trinnov, not sure, but there is no surround sound processing per se involved with Trinnov, no? It's re-mapping, not surround processing, or creation. Placement of sound effect is not nearly as precise with Trinnov as it is with Atmos, I don't think.
Besides location of sound, Trinnov vs. Atmos is also different in a second aspect, and that is the relative volume of sound, main vs. surround, front vs. rear, that I have been asking about. With Atmos, each channel's loudness is of course specified, with Trinnov, when you add speakers to your system, is there a rule to make sure that you have not altered the loudness balance of the different channels, so that for example you have not made the front channel overly loud relative to surround, and vice versa? When you add ceiling speakers to front l/r main speakers, how do you make sure the additional speakers have not made the front channel too loud, etc.?
Very interesting topic and I am actually being deliberately "provocative"
so I would be corrected and learn from it.Edited by cannga - 11/29/13 at 11:04am
