Dolby Introduces Dolby Atmos Album Assembler for Music Mixed in Atmos

With the Dolby Atmos Album Assembler, music creators now have a simple-to-use tool for sequencing Dolby Atmos tracks for delivery as a completed album.

The tool is available for purchase for $99 through the Avid Marketplace and also available as a free 90-day trial through Dolby.

With demand for music created in Dolby Atmos increasing, Dolby is focused on empowering creators with better and more efficient creative tools. Today, engineers who are sequencing and mastering albums in Dolby Atmos face many challenges due to the complexity of applying processing to an entire mix and with maintaining proper metadata settings for each song. To address this, Dolby has actively engaged with the creative community to develop the Dolby Atmos Album Assembler; a tool that makes it easier than ever to master and deliver content in Dolby Atmos.

Dolby Atmos Album Assembler works as an add-on to the Dolby Atmos Renderer application, purchased separately via the Dolby Atmos Production Suite or Dolby Atmos Mastering Suite, to provide a straightforward way to sequence album tracks and apply final mastering touches to the complete record. Specifically, users can align songs on the timeline to sequence tracks, edit song durations, apply fade ins/outs, apply final EQ and dynamics, and measure loudness before exporting mastered Dolby Atmos ADM BWF files.
