5.1 Support in UC

asked Jul 26, 2017 in Recording Interface Series Feature Requests by carlrowe (940 points)

Unless there is a feature I am not aware of, I would like UC to be able to map the 6 outputs on my Studio 192 Mobile into a single 5.1 output in Windows, rather than 3 stereo outputs (or 4, including the Headphone output). After doing a 5.1 mix, I would like to be able to listen to the Dolby encoded (AC3) version in a separate video player (like VLC), because there are sometimes issues going from a WAVE discrete 5.1 setup to a Dolby discrete 5.1 setup. This would also come in handy for watching movies in 5.1 in my mixing room, for reference or entertainment.

Currently, when attempting to use Dolby or DTS Surround, it will only play stereo through all 6 speakers with A+B+C speaker management. I believe the only way around this is to have Windows recognize all outputs from the Studio 192 as a single 5.1 output, rather than separate stereo outputs.

If needed, I'm using Windows 10 64-bit and UC 2.1.1
