Hi, I have a problem with ardour3 panner, multichannel surround panner respectively. I am using Ardour3 beta release3. If I play a track and add the panner, In manual mode I can slide it without problems. But if I change mode to play mode (to play written automatition) suddenly there is no sound. If reverted, sound is back. I don't know, is it a bug? Or do I something wrong? Does someone have this problem too?

@rybinin: yes, its one of the major "functionality missing" bugs in a3 - no automation playback for the surround panner. It will be fixed before a3 is finally released.

Ardour 3 official release is out but I have still the problem "no automation playback" during surround panner. What's wrong? Wasn't it fixed in 3.0.0 release? Thanks.

@rybinin: no. the surround panner was reimplemented, but there is no automation for it. I am not happy with the implementation either (there are many areas of 3.0 that still require substantial improvement)

But how to use surround panner without automation for multichannel mixing? Is there another possibility? i don't understand. What are future plans for surround panner?
