This is my workaround for how to get multi channel sound coming out of Ableton Live. I've used VBAP to calculate the panning but you can use any math.

This is a setup for a specific application, but jump into it and have a play, set it up for what ever you want.

Pros:
-Solid, smooth panning

Cons:
-the track goes direct to the sound card so you cant use the master gain to control volume.
-No automation (YET)

How To use:
-The vbap test1c send.amxd is a controller it makes no sound.
- The Vbaptest 1 receve.amxd and Vbaptest 2 receve.amxd get volume data from the controller.
-look at the group/effects rack in the download for more info.
