    Do you need advanced Digital Audio Workstations when creating surround sound audio for your video's? Just curious on everyone's stance on this....I personally love multichannel surround sound...I think audio is half the picture and whenever I make a video I make an effort to include directionality and ambience no matter what. I use FCP X panning which seams a bit "manual" but its pretty straight you guys all use Pro Tools or other DAW software?
    Just curious...also don't post "you don't need surround sound..." I find it a very important aspect and have a personal interest in its role as well as the formats new and old which is why I made the topic!

    i only used 5 channel audio once, for a music project, it was immense, for film its definitely something that you want to do, however you must always remember to create a stereo mix too, because not everyone has surround sound and it doesn't sound how you want if you dont create a separate mix.
