Avid Pro Tools to offer native Dolby Atmos mixing

LAS VEGAS, NV – Avid’s (www.avid.com) forthcoming release of Avid Pro Tools will offer native Dolby Atmos mixing, the company revealed at NAB 2017. Through a collaboration between Avid and Dolby, Pro Tools will streamline complex workflows and facilitate fluid, efficient audio mixing for the immersive audio format. 

Pro Tools will feature a comprehensive suite of Dolby Atmos workflows to enable audio post professionals to work more fluidly in the multi-channel and object-based audio format. New features will include built-in Dolby Atmos panning, deep Avid pro mixing control surface integration, advanced automation with the Dolby Rendering and Mastering Unit (RMU), and more. 

Pro Tools enhancements include support for Dolby Atmos 7.1.2 audio stems with built-in fold-down logic. On-the-fly switching and automation between surround and object outputs give mixers a great deal of flexibility. For the most fluid re-recording workflows, Pro Tools also synchronizes audio and automation punches between input and playback modes in conjunction with the Dolby RMU. And support for ADM BWAV files, containing object metadata, makes remixing more efficient and economical for repurposing content.

Combined with Pro Tools | S6 and Pro Tools | HD, the premium suite of Dolby Atmos mixing tools delivers an integrated and affordable solution for mixing Dolby Atmos soundtracks for theatrical releases. 

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