With the latest update of Apple Music, this has become more relevant. Me and my friends are being pressured to use other DAWs because S1 does not support surround sound mixing and our projects require them now.  It would also be great if PreSonus can get official Dolby support.

S1 team, if you want to stay afloat please do this. THIS IS AN URGENT FEATURE REQUEST.  Please make this happen. I'm being forced to use clunky Reaper!

Asking PreSonus for 5.1/7.1 isn't JUST a Film or Video request. I have purchased several remastered reissue sets from The Beatles, John Lennon, Tom Petty, etc., that ALL include a 24 bit 5.1 Audio Mix. This seems to be very standard in music now. PLEASE add this feature even as a PreSonus Plug-in.

This is a MUST for Studio One to remain relevant as a DAW. So many artists are asking for 5.1 mixes and for film and television it is a must have feature. Seriously considering ditching Studio One for a 5.1 capable DAW.

In speaking with Waves Sales and Support today 11-15-21 due to their humongous sale, the DTS Neural Surround Collection, Abbey Road Studio 3, NX Mix Room and all of the other Surround Sound products are not compatible with Studio One version 5. When I asked for a list of host applications I was informed: Reaper, ProTools, Cubase, LogicPro and several others but not Studio One. It seems all of my work is held hostage at 2.0 sound at least currently or do a stem export into Reaper or I'll have to Upmix from 2.0 to 5.1 by using Reaper with the above plugins. All clunky alternatives.

Here it is June 2022 and still know update or upgrade from PreSonus. Spatial Audio, surround sound is a must for Studio One 5. I love the fact that you can Mix and Master within studio one, this is the only Daw that has this feature. I do have Logic Pro X and have used their surround features. Being a long time user of studio one 5, I may have to make Logic Pro X my main DAW.  I don't see any reason for PreSonus not adding this feature to Studio One 5 either as an update or upgrade. That being said Please add surround sound in a update or upgrade soon!

Please allow full compatibility and usability with sound cards that are Dolby Atmos and 7.1 ready. Allow unlimited routing for all kinds of tasks in the studio. That the limit is the sound interfaces, not the software.
