Dolby Atmos 7.1.4 Immersive Mixing

NOW MIXING IN DOLBY ATMOS
We are no longer living in a 5.1 "circle of speakers." The future is here and now.

Immersive audio has truly arrived. Now there is an up and down, a sphere of sound to be enjoyed with movies as well as music. Dolby Atmos offers a major increase in useable audio real estate, precisely placing or moving beds and objects anywhere in a 3D room model. It has to be experienced to really be appreciated.

Dolby Labs has developed a system where Atmos can be approximated on regular headphones, a TV soundbar or speakers that also fire upwards, reflecting off the ceiling, making it possible to get some 3D effect without installing overhead speakers. Apple is supporting Atmos with their own Spatial Audio format. We believe that Atmos is here to stay, especially with Dolby, Apple and other large corporations supporting it. The beauty of it is that an Atmos mix will play back on 5.1, 7.1 or any surround audio playback system. It will even play in stereo or mono. Mix your next video or music project in Dolby Atmos.

Make an appointment today to hear it for yourself.
