Dolby Atmos & Dolby Atmos 3D Binaural Immersive Audio

We are pleased to offer new Dolby Atmos and Dolby Atmos 3D Binaural mixes for Debra Lyn’s 15th Anniversary Edition of “I Can’t Remember to Forget You” album as well as her “You Can’t Hold Me Close When You’re Holdin’ The Bottle” single.

Why Dolby Atmos? Jeff Silverman’s presentation explains Dolby Atmos
and its importance as a new format available to musicians and creatives.

What are Dolby Atmos and 3D Binaural Mixes?

Dolby Atmos

You may recognize the name from the movies, but Dolby Atmos is now available for streaming music and is quickly becoming the new sought-after 3D immersive audio format. It offers a “one size fits all” mix, which enables 1 audio file / stream to be converted to any hardware source automatically so that it will detect whether the listener is using stereo, 3D binaural, headphones or 7.1.4 Dolby Atmos format (7 speakers, 1 sub and 4 ceiling speakers) and higher.

What sets Dolby Atmos apart from stereo or older surround technology is that the music can now be mixed in a 3D space that allows the producer and/or engineer to choose precisely how to place the specific sounds (also called “objects”). For example, if you are listening to music on an Atmos-compatible sound system, you might hear a cello that sounds like it is in the front of the room when the song starts. As the song progresses, the cello can an actually move so that it sounds like it is coming from beside, behind, above or below and you  feel that you are totally immersed in the music. If you’re listening to a recording of a “live” band, you might actually feel like you’re sitting right on stage.

Dolby Atmos is now supported for streaming on Amazon Music HD and Tidal HiFi. Many devices are also now Dolby Atmos compatible such as Android TV by Sony or Philips. You can also connect an Atmos-capable A/V receiver or soundbar via HDMI ARC or eARC to get the full Atmos Music Experience.

Dolby Atmos 3D Binaural

3D Binaural mixes are created directly from the Dolby Atmos mix, which is an immersive 2 track mix that allows you to listen on your favorite speakers, headphones or earbuds. 3D Binaural music is supported by all streaming services worldwide!
