The whole soundfield is available to emulate the bass management that might occur in consumer

equipment; this can be chosen in the preferences of the renderer.

Creative bass management can be achieved by a number of avenues: multiband splitter, The Cargo Cult

Stemcell surround filter software, and so on.

Use of the LFE channel can be considered for supportive elements of the mix but not as a destination for all

low-frequency content. Do not rely on the LFE channel as your exclusive bass channel.
