Tim Hoogenakker, re-recording mixer with the Formosa Group, talks about his work on movie and TV soundtracks, including a look at his studio, mixing in Dolby Atmos for commercial and home release (with animated examples of the Atmos panner and metadata modules), upmixing 5.1 and even 2-channel sources to Atmos, restoration of catalog titles, assuring proper downmixing of Atmos to 5.1 or fewer speakers, mixing live-concert titles in Atmos, the difference between Atmos and DTS:X, doing his own final encode, anecdotes from some of the projects he’s worked on, answers to chat-room questions, and more.
