    There are many methods used for encoding a Dolby Surround Sound compatible recording. One method is to use 4 channel Quadraphonic recordings from the '70's. By running the 4 channel tape thru a Sound Console and then output via 4 or 5 channels to a matrix encoder. Another Method is to record the entire performance to 4 or more channels and mix them from whatever number originally recorded to 4 channels that are fed to the matrix encoder. Some events are recorded with multiple stereo microphone groups placed throughout the performance space in order to record the natural acoustics, reverberant ques and phase data and do not use a Dolby encoder at all. Others use the Spatializer system to widen the sound of a stereo recording over 2 speakers that wraps around when played back on a surround system. One other approached is to record the performance via two channels. After the recording is done, the two channels are sent to a computer where room environments are added and then fed out of the computer via 4 or 5 channels to a matrix encoder.
