Award-winning japanese label uses Pyramix 25th for Dolby Atmos® releases


Press release | The dilemma that faces any supplier of music software is knowing what features to include in the next version. The inclusion of a Dolby Atmos workflow on the latest version of Pyramix was an easy decision to make. The first point was that Pyramix users were being asked to provide Dolby Atmos content as many of them have a considerable archive of multichannel music accumulated over years. Additionally, Merging has been enhancing its Pyramix immersive mixing options recently as the demand for different solutions increased. Any major enhancement to software needs to go through a beta phase and it is always encouraging when this process results in final productions.


Unamas logoUnamas in Japan has done exactly this and we are happy to share the news, as this perfectly demonstrates the value of the new workflow and gives some insight on the diversity of the titles on offer. Although some people refer to our 25th Anniversary as Version 13 – PDF brochure here – there are also those of a more superstitious nature who prefer to avoid that number!


Since its establishment in 2007, it has been enthusiastically producing high-resolution music as a boutique label, and has been making advanced 11.1 channel immersive audio productions since 2014.
The principal of the Unamas Label is the renowned engineer, Mick Sawaguchi, who has won the Japan Professional Music Recording Award six times in recent years. 10 out of 18 immersive audio titles were released on Amazon Music HD at the end of September 2020 in Dolby Atmos.
The Pyramix 25th Anniversary version was used with the VAD - Virtual Audio Device employed to control a Mac based Dolby Atmos Production Suite Renderer via a Ravenna/AES67 Network. The diagram below shows how this is connected.
