The Center channel is not as common in music use cases as it is in the audio/visual content world. However,

it can be a useful addition in your mix. Considerations should be made around:

• Overly exposed lead vocals: Artists may not want their voice to be able to be soloed easily from other


• Overreliance on the physical speaker: In certain configurations, such as a common stereo system, there

is no physical center speaker. For this target setup, it is a good idea to check how your mix will sound

with left and right speakers only.
