Dolby Atmos Music is becoming increasingly popular as a 3D music format thanks to various sales channels such as Blu-ray and streaming. Even though most consumers today listen to music using headphones, the majority of productions are mixed in certified studios on a speaker setup like 9.1.6. Such a large speaker setup offers many possibilities to achieve impressive results. However, most musicians are not yet familiar with it.

It is therefore obvious to use creative ideas from stereophonic music productions and transmit them in a modified form into 3D audio. Lasse Nipkow will show how psychoacoustic phenomena from stereo can be used for Dolby Atmos.
