I am preparing a surround audio performance and want to create a 4.1 monitoring setup in my studio. Budget 's limited though. Subs I can afford don't have multichannel support, just stereo, so I've been looking for workarounds. There are external surround bass management devices but they are as expensive as subs with surround support so no go. Next idea is to do the crossover filtering in Max.
Will parallel high-pass and low-pass biquad~'s do? Those have 12dB slopes if I understand correctly. But in the documentation of the Blue Sky bass management controller I read the high-pass is 12dB and the low-pass 24dB. What's up with that?
Should I worry about phase alignment and other things?
Or is an FFT based approach more desirable?
Tanx for all help!
