Is it possible to set up Dolby Atmos Renderer using a normal version of Pro Tools 2019?

I have a simple question about setting up the Dolby Atmos Renderer and Pro Tools. 

Does not the Dolby Atmos Renderer support a normal version of Pro Tools 2019 (not Pro Tools Ultimate)?

It does not mention this software only support the Pro Tools Ultimate on this website ( and documentation (, but it seems it cannot use without Pro Tools Ultimate.

Recently I bought this software and tried to set up, however, I could not have done the communication setup because a normal version of pro tools did not show up the Atmos tab on peripherals setting window.



Hi Rai,

That is correct.  Pro Tools Ultimate is required to communicate with the Renderer.   Pro Tools Ultimate is listed in our documentation as required in section 3.1 of the release notes and 4.1.1 of the Renderer Guide.   Also on the Avid main site  but you are correct that it isn't called out on the Avid Markets place plug in page

I'll inquire if this can be brought to their attention and modified to avoid any future confusion.

Hello. I'm Ilya, аnd I'm home user . I would like to try working with Dolby Atmos. Please, give me advise, which version of Pro Tools is the minimum necessary for me, to work Production Suite and Render? The Ultimate version is very expensive. Will the regular version of the Pro Tools be enough?

Hello Ilya,

It is possible to use other versions of Pro Tools (non-Ultimate) and other DAW's by using the Dolby Atmos Panner Plugin ( and Send/Return plugins (the come installed with the Dolby Atmos Production Suite).

When using Dolby Atmos Panner Plugin  Can I create a .atmos file in Render? 

The Dolby Atmos Production Suite will allow you to create Dolby Atmos master files (.Atmos)

Thank you.

Hello. I buy  Dolby Producer Suite and Pro Tools, not Ultimate. When outputting to a render 7.1, I cannot send a LFE channel. The rest of the channels I send as objects, how to send a LFE channel? Please, tell me how do I implement this?
