Anybody noticed some Atmos mixes are lower in volume and dynamics than the TrueHD core or the lossy DD 5.1 mix for some specific films?
I have this really strange problem with a few Atmos tracks with some films while the majority are just fine. The problem is that the Atmos mix sounds so much lower in volume than the TrueHD core of the same track or the lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 mix. The Atmos mix for Midway is fine but when I...www.avforums.com
And I mean a HUGE volume level difference, not a small one.
It is most notably more often than not Disney titles that have portrayed this issue. No one knows why exactly, but Disney are obviously doing something that everyone else isn't when either mixing or encoding the soundtracks? It is often suggested that you simply increase the master volume in order to compensate while watching Atmos encoded Disney titles.
Using Neural:X upmixing isn't a resolution because you'd no longer be getting Atmos if applying Neural:X upmixing to the underlaying TrueHD 7.1 soundtrack. The Atmos metadata would be ignored by the AV receiver in such instances.
