Setting the Project Surround Format

You can determine the surround format you want to use for a project in the Audio project settings. By default, a new project is set to 5.1.

To determine the project surround format
  1. Open the Audio project settings by doing one of the following:

    • Choose File > Project Settings > Audio (or use the Open Audio Project Settings key command, default assignment:  Option-U).

    • Click the Settings button in the Arrange toolbar, and choose Audio from the pop-up menu.

  2. Choose a format from the Surround Format pop-up menu.

    Figure. Audio project settings pane.

Tip: Save a project that has been set up for surround format work as a template. This way you won’t have to set the surround format every time you want to create a new surround project. Start with the included templates, modify them as necessary, and save them as your own templates.
