After working together on an immersive audio remix of "There She Was" by the pop band Similar Kind, Factory Underground's Co-Owner and In-House Producer, Kenny Cash sat down to talk with Greg Tobler, engineer and owner of Tobler Audio to discuss mixing in Dolby Atmos (aka Spatial Audio in Apple-speak.) They discuss the general workflow and techniques used to mix in immersive audio.
