|Title:||APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR DOWNMIXING OR UPMIXING A MULTICHANNEL SIGNAL USING PHASE COMPENSATION|
An apparatus for downmixing a multi-channel signal (100) comprising at least two channels (101, 102), comprises: a downmixer (120) for calculating (34) a downmix signal (122) from the multi-channel signal (100), wherein the downmixer is configured to calculate (34) the downmix using an absolute phase compensation, so that a channel having a lower energy among the at least two channels is only rotated or is rotated stronger than a channel having a greater energy in calculating the downmix signal (122); and an output interface (160) for generating an output signal, the output signal comprising information on the downmix signal (122).
