New intelligent surround panner

Pardon the gushing, but the new surround panner in Studio is amazing. Adding the ability to disable speakers and have the panner intelligently redistribute volume to other speakers is great. I’m a Nuendo user and the panner is very similar. With the new panner, we can finally make even 3D sounds Quad or Stereo only sounds. This was only available in the past to 2D sounds, or by using the speaker volume effect. Now, an entire bus can be set to a speaker configuration. I haven’t heard anyone else call this out, but it’s pretty amazing.

Thanks for feedback, fuzzynoise. We’re glad you like it!

We’ll be adding many new features to the surround panner in future releases so this thread would the perfect place for yourself and others to comment on and discuss using the panner.
