no surround panning for midi in Cubase sx 3?

hi, i don't even own Cubase yet, but i've been reading through the manual. i'm at the automation subtracks section, and it doesn't show the option for surround panning parameters. what's up with that? does this mean i can't use surround panning for midi at all, or just in automation? are there any ways around this? i've been all psyched up about using surround panning, so please tell me i don't have to shoot myself in the face now.

thanks, Reuben

It means that midi is not audio. Convert the midi track to audio and you can pan to taste in the 5.1 field.
