Listen to spatial mixes from any DAW or audio plug-in including Logic Pro X, Pro Tools, and Dolby Atmos Renderer.

In the Syng Studio app, ensure the output format is set to either 7.1.4 or 9.1.4.
Then, in the Music app on your Mac, choose Music > Settings. Click Playback, then choose one of the options from the Dolby Atmos pop-up menu. Many albums and songs on Apple Music support spatial playback. Supported tracks will have the Dolby icon next to them. For some playlists to get you started, follow this link.
