Step inside the legendary Capitol Studios for our second series on mixing in Dolby Atmos! This instalment is hosted by Steve Genewick, a renowned engineer who began exploring this format in 2017 and pioneered a number of techniques.

Alongside Ceri Thomas of Dolby Music, Genewick opens the stereo mix session of 'White Lightning' by Staci Griesbach and demonstrates how he transfers the material to a new session for mixing in Atmos. He explains how he changed his Pro Tools stereo mix template for this workflow, and gives you a walkthrough of his routing, inserts, and positioning of tracks using objects and zones.

You will learn Steve's method of adapting mono effects plug-ins for Atmos, his binaural parameter settings, how he manages integrated loudness, and much more!
