Earlier this year, we partnered with our friends at DolbyAvidFocal and Triad-Orbit to host a series of Dolby Atmos mixing classes at the Vintage King Nashville Showroom.

Each class demonstrated the benefits of mixing in Dolby Atmos and showcased what gear is needed to get started. Attendees got hands-on experience mixing in Dolby Atmos using the Dolby Atmos Mastering Suite softwarePro Tools and an Avid S6 console. The speaker system, assembled by Focal and professionally tuned by Dolby, consisted of Focal ST6 studio monitors mounted using Triad-Orbit Precision Sound Speaker Mount Systems.

As a special thank-you to everyone who's subscribed to PLAYBACK magazine, we're offering a behind-the-scenes look at one of our Intro To Mixing With Dolby Atmos classes. Watch the full hour-long session below, including a breakdown of what gear you’ll need to get started and a detailed walkthrough of several different Dolby Atmos workflows to help you determine which approach is right for you.
