Dolby Atmos, Lossless Audio in Apple Music

Apple Music subscribers will be able to immerse in the Dolby Atmos music experience through Spatial Audio on Apple Music across a wide range of devices starting June 2021. 

Apple Music will also make its catalog of more than 75 million songs available in Lossless Audio. Apple uses ALAC (Apple Lossless Audio Codec) to preserve every single bit of the original audio file. Apple Music’s Lossless tier starts at CD quality 16 bit at 44.1 kHz, and goes up to 24 bit at 48 kHz and is playable natively on Apple devices. For the true audiophile, Apple Music also offers Hi-Resolution Lossless all the way up to 24 bit at 192 kHz.

The best bit? There’s no extra cost for Atmos or hi res audio, everything is included in the base price. Goodbye, Tidal and its snake oil MQA-coding…

DADman Now macOS Big Sur Compatible

DADman software for Avid MTRX and DAD AX32 and DX32 is now Big Sur compatible. v. 5.4.5.1 is also working with macOS Catalina (10.15), Mojave (10.14), High Sierra (10.13), Sierra (10.12), El Capitan (10.11) and Yosemite (10.10). DADman 5.4.5.1 does not support new M1-based Mac computers, but it will run seamlessly on any Intel-based Mac.

We don’t recommend using Big Sur yet but if you’re stuck with a new Mac with pre-installed macOS Big Sur, this is great news.
