Real World’s Red Room goes Atmos

Posted on: Tuesday 15th of March 2022

Real World Red RoomFollowing a re-fit early last year (V21.1), Real World Studios’ Red Room has now completed its promised upgrade to Dolby Atmos. The studio is now equipped with a full 7.1.4 array, comprising of ATC SCM45As for L, C & R, ATC SCM12 Pros for tops and sides, and an SCM0.1/15SL Pro subwoofer, with monitor control and via a Dante-connected Grace Design M908.

Senior engineer, Tim Oliver says “Dolby Atmos is the format for new music creation as much as, if not more than, a format to re-explore old works. As such, Real World will be at the forefront of the push to deliver that.” 

To that extent, while Real World still sees itself as a musician-first facility, the Red Room will be marketed as both a Dolby Atmos production room and a Dolby Atmos mixing room (Atmos, surround and stereo as well as a writing a production space. 

“We needed to give people as many reasons to come and work at Real World as possible,” says head engineer, Oli Jacobs. “For that purpose, we’ve kept SSL summing for hybrid mixing, analogue outboard gear, microphones from Real World’s comprehensive collection and a Yamaha U3 felted upright piano. We’ve made the technical install extremely versatile, so anyone can still just turn up, plug their laptops into the installed Universal Audio Apollo X8 and they’re off.” 

Red Room with Dolby Atmos is available to book now with introductory rates available until June 1st.
