Apple Logic Pro can now create Dolby Atmos mixes at no extra costs
#1
Information 
On Monday Apple dropped Logic Pro 10.7 and it included a major feature: Create Dolby Atmos mixes.

For pros and hobbiest this is huge, as the feature comes at no extra costs. If you know how to mix a 5.1 mix, then moving to Dolby Atmos wont be hard. You can mix up to 7.1.4. Though I couldn't find an option to export to Dolby TrueHD. At this point you export to something that works with Apple Music and probably Apple TV. But it might be also a lossless version that you need the official Dolby Encoder for. Only time will tell if you can go full fledged movie mixes in Dolby Atmos. I don't see a reason why you shouldn't Wink

Regardless, this is pretty awesome news Smile

Does Atmos on apple music use E-AC-3 or some proprietary format? If there's no way to properly export it to something that can by muxed with video, it's nice but ultimately useless.
I wonder if this is some limitation imposed by Dolby specifically so you can't use it for mixing movies.

Indeed; if you can't export to TrueHD, or at very least Dolby Digital Plus (even if the latter is not the best option), there is little use for "us"! Wink
Sadly my projects are lost due to an HDD crash... Sad

Is that the consumer or cinema version of Atmos?

Definitely consumer since you can only do 7.1.4

So it's just static mixes? No moving objects or anything?

Problem is, what to do with 11ch (or 12) WAV file?
Dunno if there are some players that can accept it; even if so, you do need a 11 (12) channel compatible audio card...

More investigations are needed! Smile
Sadly my projects are lost due to an HDD crash... Sad

No. This is real Dolby Atmos.

Dolby Atmos as PCM is usable with the Apple TV box. I don't have one, so I can't test how you can use it.
