I need this! I'm really starting to like Studio One, but there are some features that you guys really should implement, like more timestretching algorithms for example. I hate to switch between DAWs to achieve certain things.

We really need surround sound features for Studio One, especially surround sound panning. While surround sound was never used in music before, I know for a fact there is no written rule saying that we can't write music in surround sound, so I plan to actually break that ground and start writing pieces that take full advantage of the surround sound feature.

Totally agree. I want to use Studio One for every project, but I have to go to another DAW for all the film/documentary work I get.  Would also like a more robust video sync feature to go along with this addition.

The S1 architecture and ease of use makes it an easy candidate for the new industry standard, and I think the product roadmap should address these kinds of glaring holes to make it reality.

Yes, please add!!!  I use Waves Surround tools to pan, but also need to output AC3 and be able to monitor it!

Reasons to add it:

Audacity can generate a 5.1 AC3. AUDACITY!

Logic Pro can do it.

Reaper can do it.

People do film scoring.

It’s not just for film scoring. Our church creates a 5.1 AC3 with click and stems. We load the file in ProPresenter, then make a timeline synced to the audio. This allows us to have ProPresenter automatically advance the lyric slides at the right time for the whole song set. Audio goes to an interface, each of the 5.1 channels is assigned an output that is patched to our mixer and...voila, we get stems, click, AND automatic slide advancement.

Would be nice to do our 5.1 AC3 creation in the same DAW where we create our stems.

Thanks for listening. We appreciate you guys.

Please! When I need to do 5.1 I have to render stems of the original Studio One session and import them on Reaper. =( I love reaper too but I switched to Studio One for several reasons and wish I could do all in one DAW.

I'd like to see this implemented as a Fat Channel plug in for the StudioLive III. We 5.0 into stereo for live streaming. It'd be nice to be able to do this right in the StudioLive console rather than having to use the only USB interface to send it to/from a computer to do it. Since there's only one AES output on the console, in order to do it on an external Dolby Encoder, we'd have to use the analog outputs, convert to digital for input to the encoder then convert the digital encoder output to analog to get it back into the console.
