until very recently, no ardour or JACK developers had amd64 systems.
this has now changed, but it will be a while before we get all the
issues with amd64 worked out.

AFAIK, you cannot create Dolby Digital audio streams with open source
software. the encoding is proprietary.

you can do 2D-planar multi-speaker panning in ardour, for sure, but that
is not the same thing at all.

of course. i don't know of any digital audio work station in which this
is not possible. its such a basic requirement, it would be silly if you
could not. there is no built in EQ per track - it is all done with your
choice of plugins.
