Dolby Atmos
« on: August 14, 2018, 11:18:03 PM »
I'm starting to experiment with Atmos and i'm setting up a 7.1.4 monitoring . i currently have a 5.1 monitor controller and i thought of adding a second one for controlling the rear and ceiling speakers . I realize that proper dolby atmos  monitors have not only gain but also eq and delay adjustments but do you think for a starter solution 2x 5.1 controller could work

I think Joel Zimmerman (Deadmau5) has an Atmos system. Maybe you could reach out to him for some info as well? I wouldn't know but he seems like he's pretty helpful when people ask him stuff online.....

Thanks Scott, will do. Meanwhile just saw this Grace controller that looks nice and probably can't afford

Have to say that after looking around about this, it sure would be cool to go hear it......  I'm not a big fan of surround sound, always seems a bit lacking to me but this ATMOS is interesting...... who knows.....

Not too sure about home Atmos, but I was involved in installing a 46 speaker Atmos system in a film mixing studio.   In there you have a computer from Dolby that runs an algorhythm that converts the audio in real time to match the speaker array that you have in the room.   i.e if you only had a 20 speaker array it would optomise for that number of speakers.

That said it's not that expensive to buy an AV reciever with ATMOS capability https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-STRDH790-CEK-Channel-Dolby-Atmos/dp/B07C48JCNG/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1535013436&sr=8-5&keywords=atmos+dolby

Thanks Rob, i'm going for a smaller set up only 12 speakers. Edit /mix room without the dolby RMU
I bought a second 5.1 monitor controller and i'll try to get by with that until i can upgrade
