The forthcoming release of Pro Tools will include native Dolby Atmos mixing, streamlining workflows for the immersive audio format.

‘Dolby Atmos is becoming the hottest thing in cinema and home theatre, enabling filmmakers to deliver bigger, more immersive audio experiences,’ says Avid Chief Product Officer, Dana Ruzicka,. ‘We’ve worked closely with Dolby to deliver an unparalleled workflow to empower our user community of world-class audio professionals to raise the bar for immersive sound in movies, TV, music and video games.’

Pro Tools will feature a comprehensive suite of Dolby Atmos workflows – new features will include Dolby Atmos panning, deep Avid pro mixing control surface integration and advanced automation with the Dolby Rendering and Mastering Unit (RMU) among others. Pro Tools will support Dolby Atmos 7.1.2 audio stems with fold-down logic, on-the-fly switching and automation between surround and object outputs. Pro Tools also synchronises audio and automation punches between input and playback modes in conjunction with the Dolby RMU. Support for ADM BWAV files, containing object metadata, will make remixing more efficient and economical for repurposing content.

Pro Tools with native Dolby Atmos mixing will be available in Q2 2017.
