Dolby Atmos Upgrade for Headroom Studio

Headroom Studios repurposed its mastering facility with Dolby Atmos

Headroom Studio, designed by veteran sound engineer Aslam Khan and his son Aftab Khan, an established Mix and Master engineer who has worked extensively on hundreds of background scores and songs, recently upgraded to Dolby Atmos. Located in Mumbai, Headroom specializes in recording, mixing and mastering songs, scores and other audio related projects from the film industry and the independent music scene.

“Dolby Atmos brings surround sound to a whole new level and is a requirement of the day. It has become popular on Smartphones and Home Theatres,” said Aslam Khan who expects majority of the work for Atmos mixing to come from Background Scores for Films, OTT and also for music mixes.

Though there were minimal acoustic design changes made to the room for the installation of the speakers for Atmos, the Dolby design guidelines were followed and Kapil Thirwani who was the acoustic consultant on this project, deployed a comprehensive setup of 7 Surround speakers, 4 Overheads and 1 Subwoofer. Monkey Banana Gibbon 8 active near field monitors and Monkey Banana Gibbon 10 active subwoofers have been used in the studio. “The only major challenge we faced was to maintain the same level of sound quality in the Monitor Room,” said Aslam. The room also boasts of a Pro Tools Ultimate along with Dolby Atmos Renderer and AVID MTRX Studio interface.

The Monitors were supplied by Beatbox Entertainment and the AVID interface by Ansata. The Dolby Atmos Calibration was done by Bhasker Pal from Dolby.
