Please help with stereo and panning tips!
I tend to have ALL of my soundfiles in stereo before firing them into the sampler, even though most of em will probably be the same in both L and R channels... then I pan SOME stereo channels (vocals, strings etc.) on my desk.... but I'm confused by summat: a mono sound panned on the desk - is the effect the same as panning a stereo sound?
i.e. does it serve any purpose having my sounds in stereo if both L and R are the same?
Second, I'm trying to cut down the pans in order to keep the mix a bit clearer (following yr advice Macc-attack ): but what's a good guide to panning on the desk, in general?
Cheers 4 any help here..
