Thanks for taking the time to reply! We try not to shoot the messenger here!Hi all,
I opened an account just to respond to this thread. I’ll try to do my best to share some insight to the Atmos creation process and present possible solutions. ...
I’m interested to hear your thoughts and ideas how to constructively move forward.
Many of us here have spent decades immersed in some form of surround sound. The news that many of these mixes, as well as some quadraphonic rarities, will finally be available on a wide platform was like a dream come true. it didn't take long for that gift to get soiled.
I understand that the budget is a major factor to produce a proper surround mix. But why bother spending even one penny if all it results in is a sloppy mix? Of course, it is just to be able to slap an 'Atmos' sticker on the album. I would guess that many Apple subscribers will most likely be unaware of the Atmos status since they are either listening through a TV screen or a cell phone. Or worse, they may believe that this is how a surround mix should sound!
