The new Atmos authoring in Nuendo includes adding metadata for binaural playback:
The binaural mode can be selected for beds as well as objects.
What is not clear in any description:
At what stage are these binaural renderings applied?
Why are these mixes not available for monitoring inside Nuendo?
My guess to #1 is that binaural is an optional rendering mode on consumer devices equipped with Atmos, and that plugging in headphones to one of these (a new iPhone or Android) will prompt the binaural version of the mix.
About #2, I have already set up my system for native Atmos → Ambisonics → binaural as well as using dearVR monitor. I am not asking about monitoring binaural in general but asking about monitoring the specific decoding algorithm used by the Atmos binaural output.
