This is much needed, with the development of Ambisonics (think VR or YouTube 360), we need to be able to work on multichannel recordings.
It does not have to have native ambisonics plugins, there are free VST ones available that one can use. But multichannel-files compatibility is a must. Else, people will start moving to Reaper or ProTools. I for one won't upgrade my Studio One version if this isn't coming and will start moving to Reaper, even if I'd rather go on working with a DAW I know and like.
