Dubbing Session/Dubbing Stage

Applies to the motion picture industry. When a film, as a visual, is finally edited the way the director wants it, and all the sound effects, dialog and music have been separately mixed (balanced) and finalized (“built”), they are all brought together to be merged at “the dub,” which generally occurs at a “dubbing stage.” A dubbing stage is usually a studio facility that looks like a combination movie theater and recording studio engineering room (projectors, screen, theater seats, mixing board, etc.). This is where the final decisions are executed with regard to the sonic elements of the film, and it occurs in a theater-like environment to give the decision makers the best possible representation of how all the elements (audio and visual) are really working together in the context of how the film will be seen and heard.
