Status of Surround format support


#1

Where has the surround format support got to?

I’m about to start a new project which needs surround formats to work correctly - so can I trust the latest JUCE version or stick with rolling my own with JUCE 4.1


#2

Use the develop version of JUCE and surround should be well supported. However, the audio file readers/writers do not support surround yet but this is coming soon.


#3

What is that support going to mean? At the moment the audio file readers and writers (as well as the AudioThumbnail stuff) appear to support files of more than 2 channels fine. I hope things are not going to get more complicated…


#4

Nothing will get more complicated. There will be an extra method in the AudioFormatReader/Writer with which you can optionally query/set the channel layout.
