    Dolby Atmos is an emerging Immersive audio format now used in Sound for Film & TV, Game Audio, Music Production and Podcast Production. This workshop will teach you the concepts of Dolby Atmos, the Dolby Atmos Renderer software as well as workflow integration with a Digital Audio Workstation (Pro Tools).

    You will learn how to configure both Pro Tools and the Dolby Atmos Renderer, troubleshoot communication errors, and “best practice” techniques in audio-post production.

    If you’re interested in using Dolby Atmos in your production work, this workshop is a great start! Previous experience with Dolby Atmos is not necessary but we recommend participants have experience with audio production and the use of Pro Tools software.

    MOSMA is an official Dolby Institute Educational Partner and we are excited to bring this workshop to you!
