Following Avid's announcement of Dolby Atmos Integration into Pro Tools HD, Dolby have just announced two new Dolby Atmos software bundles that work in conjunction with Pro Tools. The two software suites are Dolby Atmos Mastering Suite and Production Suite.

  • Allows a user to build their own HT-RMU, for the ultimate in Dolby Atmos mastering workflow

Studio Tour : Emmy Winner Paula Fairfield's Dolby Atmos Studio

Emmy Award Winning Sound Designer Paula Fairfield is most famous for her work on the hit HBO show, “Game Of Thrones". She’s the sound designer that gives the dragons their voice, and every roar, flap or hiss coming from one of Daenerys’ three dragons is created in the studio she built in her desert home near Palm Springs.

The heart of Paula’s studio is the Avid Pro Tools S6 control surface and Colin Broad PD3 / A-Mon monitoring system that controls her HDX system. For Dolby Atmos monitoring, RSPE incorporated a JBL LSR system housed in the ASC AttackWall for Immersive Sound. The ASC AttackWall provides an optimum mixing environment that's portable and modular and translates every time.
