Building A Studio For Immersive Mixing | Part Three

Building a Dolby Atmos-certified mixing room is no easy feat. There are major obstacles to overcome, but this was unique. With a separate live room, keyboard room, and vocal booth, the goal was to make the switch between recording and monitoring in Atmos fast and intuitive, along with installing dedicated video feeds for communication between the engineers and artists. This was the task at hand for the Westlake Pro Design Services Group when they set out to build Immersive Mixing. The client wanted Dolby Atmos to be a part of the entire production process, from recording to mastering.
