Category: Terminology

Dolby Atmos is a surround sound technology developed by Dolby Laboratories. It expands on existing surround sound systems by adding height channels, allowing sounds to be interpreted as three-dimensional objects with neither horizontal nor vertical limitation.

With Cubase 12 Pro you can now create Dolby Atmos music in Cubase 12 Pro. Cubase 12 Pro shares the Dolby Atmos Renderer implementation with Nuendo and the two are very similar. Cubase 12 Pro has native Rendering to 2.0, 5.1, 7.1 5.1.4 and 7.1.4 speaker layouts and adds rendering to binaural audio for headphones.

Differences from the Nuendo Atmos implementation include ADM BWF export only (not import), the use of a single bed, and native rendering only (cannot be used with the Dolby Atmos Production or Mastering Suite).
