Determine what the main delivery configuration is meant to be, e.g., 6.0, 5.1, 11.1, 12, etc. During the sound design process it is necessary to have a clear understanding of the final playback environment. The proper auditory experience cannot be created for the audience if soundtrack is not played back in the configuration for which it was designed. When designing for the giant-screen environment, take into account the immersive nature of the sound environment, as well as the technical aspects, e.g., the derived subwoofer channel, and the ceiling and side speakers. Sound designing for the final delivery configuration allows the sound designer to take full advantage creatively and will give the audience the full impact of the soundtrack.
