In May 2019, Toolshed Audio Post received full certification from Dolby Laboratories for Dolby Atmos mixing for Home Entertainment; including streaming, DVD, and Broadcast deliverables. A mark of technical excellence for the creation of Dolby Atmos content. Toolshed was only the second studio in Los Angeles to be certified, and only one of twelve in the world. 

The new Toolshed re-recording stage was designed and tuned by Jerry Steckling, former Chief of Acoustic Engineering at Skywalker Sound, where he designed, engineered, and implemented sophisticated sound systems at George Lucas’s Skywalker Ranch and Industrial Light and Magic. 


Deliverable formats for Cinema, Broadcast, and Streaming include, 7.1, 5.1, Stereo, and Dolby ATMOS.
