    The point of this is completely lost on me. :unsure: Sound mixers use a variety of choices in where instrumentation is placed in the soundfield.

    Just about every trailer has no music at all in the center channel- that was the first thing I noticed as a projectionist when they started doing trailer audio in digital (previously, it had been mostly mono.)

    Remember watching part of "Showgirls" from the booth with the monitor set to just the center channel, and laughing at a scene in a dance club where you could only hear the dialogue and foleyed sounds of footsteps.

    I'm curious, too, Caleb. Why are you compiling this list? For what benefit?

    Well, it's because i noticed many movies/shows had full music heard in center channel. And there's some movies/shows that DO have just percussive music elements heard in center channel or just no music.

    All right. But why is it important to you to create a list of this?

    Is it useful to you in some way?

    Don't take my questions as a negative. I'm just curious as to what good the list is going to do for you.

    I notice lots of things in life, but don't start compiling them into lists. :D

    Yeah, it's just that some movies and shows has different sounds of music heard from different speakers. Cause not all movies and shows had that, they would use full music heard in center speaker.

    Thanks for the info Caleb. I was totally unaware of this and it is interesting to me. There must be a reason for this and I wonder what that might be.

    It definitely shows off the separation capabilities that weren't possible with 2-channel matrixed sound. A side benefit is that by disconnecting channels, you can get dialogue-only or music-only presentations of some movies.

    Just remembered that sometimes the songs during end credits will have only the vocals in the center channel, giving you an acapella version. The Seal song at the end of "Entrapment" is like that, as is Will Smith's "Men in Black" rap.
