As you may have seen of late, VR Audio is a fast growing area of professional audio.

So far, there are very few market leading DAWs that support the complex panning and routing necessary to support working on Higher Order Ambisonic files. In fact, even the ones that do (Reaper and ProTools HD12) both require complex routing workarounds to function - and to me it appears there is a massive gap in the market for a DAW to adopt this format natively. 

There are several third party manufacturer creating plugins and software for functions such as, the panner, file management, encoding, decoding, with video support. And most available options are clunky, unreliable and generally very unstable. Again, a clear gap in the current major league DAW market.

Please step in - and fast - to integrate this emerging field of audio, take the reigns, and be a leader in that space - PLEASE!

Thank you!
