On Monday 3rd October, the Melbourne Section of the AES held our regular bi-monthly meeting.
We welcomed about 30 members and guests via Zoom.
Angus Davidson from Red Road Immersive studio presented to us on the topic
Recording Music for Immersive Platforms
– applying Dolby Atmos to music streaming
Chairman Graeme Huon introduced Angus who started his presentation with a brief run-through of his career to date.
He then moved on to introduce the studio design decisions necessary for Dolby Atmos mixing, covering the appropriate room size for different applications (music, video, or film work) as well as the acoustic treatment, and choices of working with a physical console or mixing “in-the-box”.
He then spoke about equipment choices, emphasising the criticality of speaker choice.
