Users can now render and monitor Dolby Atmos mixes within Pro Tools without having to roundtrip to an external renderer. A new window provides comprehensive visualization of Dolby Atmos mixes from various perspectives and enables quick switching between multi-speaker and binaural headphone monitoring.

Additionally, a new I/O Setup tab simplifies the configuration of beds, objects, groups, trim, and downmix settings and saves them as part of the session for easy recall.
