I’m trying to figure out GAse4 and have been going through the growing pains. One of the bigger pains involves finding a way to edit/alter the playback of a sample (cymbal for instance) so that it can be played as a mono file and the playback comes up without panning. Moving the panner just lowers the side that you move away from. For example, a crash sample is panned (in the sample) to the left with a small part playing on the right. If I pan right to center it, the left part of the sample (with all the attack) is lost.
I attempted to use the ‘sum’ button inside the sample editor of GA. This showed a correct representation of the file sample as mono, but doesn’t change the playback.
So how does one move a crash to the center of a drum mix without losing the quality of the crash? (I know, who would want to)
If GA doesn’t do this, I think it’s a huge oversight. But I have confidence that I’ve missed some micro button and just need a little help here. My workaround is to send it out of GA on it’s own bus and then send it to a mono group bus.
Any help is much appreciated.
