Mistake in Compressor 2 Manual

The section "Assigning Files to Surround Sound Channels (Automatic Methods)" in the Compressor 2 manual gives faulty instructions when it lays out the channel identifier codes! Using the codes given in the manual will result in not a single surround source media file finding its way to the batch window.

Within Compressor, if you embed the identifier codes within the files names of mono Aiff files and place them all into the batch window, the proper surround channels will be assigned as they are converted to AC-3 file.

Use this chart of correct channel identifier codes to properly assign mono Aiff files to surround channels.

Surround Channel Channel Identifier Code

Left -L
Right -R
Center -C
Surround Left -RL
Surround Right -RR
Surround Center -RC
Subwoofer -LFE

Example: If you had an Aiff file named Airplane and you wanted to assign it to the Surround Right Channel, it would look like this: airplane.-RR.aiff
