Tool for mixing 5.1 surround

Recommended Posts

I came across some software that allows you to create 5.1 surround DVDs by giving it 5 mono audio tracks that it then mixes together. Sounds great, but creating the 5 mono audio tracks is kinda tough. Is there a tool that allows you to create sound "sources" that you can move around inside a space, then have it render the output to 5 mono tracks? I've thought about writing my own tool to do this, but since I've never had much luck mixing sound data, and since this would probably quickly approach the complexity of OpenAL I figured I'd ask if something like this already existed.

Cubase SX(but not SL) has a SurroundPan feature, which lets you visually pan tracks in 2d space and then export as various formats (3 speaker, 4 speaker, 5.1 etc)

I'm using Nuendo and although it does contain a Surround Panner...You still need the AC3 encoder. It's all about the encoding.
