It would be great if I could pan a send using the surround panner. Currently, the PT Control app can only pan a surround send using the individual parameters and not the touch screen panner.
Be Aware.. I have a 7.1 Output in my I/O. When using a 5.1 Bus & mapping to the 7.1 Output you lose the Rear Surrounds. If you create a 5.1 Output & Map your 5.1 Bus to that it works fine. Sat with a Dolby Specialist & diagnosed this..There is a bug when mapping to the 5.1 bus of a 7.1 output.
When bouncing to a Quicktime movie in 5.1 in PT 12.8.0 and lower, the track order is wrong when playing the resulting file in other applications. It appears as though Film order us being used, and SMPTE/ITU order is expected.
Add a control room pannel with a fader or knob to control the listening output volume and surround tools like mute and solo for each channel.
