Known Issues for Music Panner 1.1


This release has some known issues, for which we provide workarounds, comments, and solutions. 

• When using the Dolby Atmos Renderer on a laptop running on battery power, you may experience plug-in UI inconsistencies. As a workaround, connect your laptop to its power adapter when using the Dolby Atmos Renderer. [EUROPA-741]

If a Dolby Atmos Music Panner drop-down menu is open and the plug-in window is moved, the drop-down menu remains in its original onscreen location. To avoid this, do not move the plug-in window until you have closed the menu. [EUROPA-651]

After changing a Dolby Atmos Music Panner from stereo to mono by toggling the track input, the mono panner can remember the object assignment previously assigned to it.

For example, if you use the former second (right) object assignment in another panner (or make the input channel unavailable in the Renderer), and then return to the mono panner and change the track input back to stereo, the panner will have its original stereo object assignment, even though the second (right) assignment should be not be allowed. As a workaround, choose a new valid object assignment. [EUROPA-874]

In Nuendo, if you have a Dolby Atmos Music Panner on a stereo track, and change the track to mono and then back again to stereo, the second (right) object in the panner becomes inactive even though it is still assigned. To reactivate the object, close the project and relaunch. [EUROPA-875]

Deactivating a track that has a Dolby Atmos Music Panner plug-in inserted on it, and then reactivating the track can result in a UI glitch. For example, an object in the bottom left corner of the virtual room will display part of the input channel number. As a workaround, close the plug-in, and then reopen it to refresh the UI. [EUROPA-242]

The bypass button for the Dolby Atmos Music Panner does not stop plug-in metadata from being sent to the Renderer. The metadata continues to be sent to the Renderer. [EUROPA-240]

In Ableton Live, when importing 16- or 32-bit files, the panner UI can become unresponsive while the application calculates the waveform overviews and analyzes the incoming audio files. As a workaround, save the project after all of the 32-bit tracks have been analyzed, and then relaunch the project. [EUROPA-736]

When using the AU version of the Dolby Atmos Music Panner plug-in with Ableton Live, panner controls with discrete parameters (such as the Sequencer Enable and Elevation controls) do not record automation when using the panner UI. As a workaround, use the VST3 version of the panner plug-in. Alternatively, you can use the AU version of the panner plug-in and manually draw automation for these controls. [EUROPA-729]

When using the AU version of the Dolby Atmos Music Panner plug-in with Ableton Live, automatable control parameters do not sort in the correct order in the automation drop-down list. As a workaround, use the VST3 version of the panner plug-in. [EUROPA-730]

In Ableton Live or Logic Pro, when using a large number of Dolby Atmos Music panners, you may see one of these issues:

  • The audio input indicators in the Renderer blink.
  • The Renderer displays an audio device disconnect dialog.

Both of these issues indicate that the Renderer cannot process the amount of incoming audio. As a

workaround, reduce the number of panners to alleviate the problem. [EUROPA 725], [EUROPA-743]

With Logic Pro, you may experience a short audio dropout during playback when turning a Dolby

Atmos Music Panner plug-in bypass on and off. [EUROPA-689]

In Logic, the object cannot be repositioned with UI controls until audio plays through the track

because the object does not reposition to a newly-created sequencer path until audio plays though the track. The object will also not reposition to a newly-created sequencer path until audio plays through the track. As a workaround, always play audio in the track before adjusting the object position in the panner. If the track does not have audio, add audio to the track, start playback, and then adjust the object position. [EUROPA-607, EUROPA-643]

In Logic Pro, when running a project with a large number of objects and automation data, a system overload alert might appear. If this occurs, reduce the number of panners in the project. [EUROPA-698]

With Avid Artist Mix and S3 control surfaces, the order of the plug-in parameters are vertically backwards. This means that the table reads from right to left, instead of left to right. To change this, open the EuControl Settings window, click the General tab, and click (enable) the Reverse Inserts knobs (S3 + Mix) option. Note that this is a global setting, and therefore affects all insert pages. [EUROPA-730, EUROPA-802]

In Nuendo, recording initial Z automation with a scroll wheel will record the automation, but the automation will be not be read when played back. As a workaround, first record automation with the Z rotary knob. Automation will now be read after being recorded using the scroll wheel. [EUROPA-748]

Using a fractional sequence step duration for objects can result in object movements that are too quick to be rendered correctly. Use caution when using a fractional step duration. [EUROPA-684]
