Thanks Elien, I’m having a blast with it, just wish I had more spare time!
I followed raino’s suggestion to copy the parts over to stereo tracks and use the stereo combined panning, man that opened up a whole maze of places to visit.
That’s the thing with this stuff, you think “I’ll just quickly try moving this slider over here” and suddenly it’s 2 o’clock in the morning, I’m surrounded by endless A4 pages of scribbles and 5 empty beer cans and I’m still fiddling with that same slider! No wonder you guys spend a lifetime learning this stuff.
I didn’t get the stereo combined panning sorted, I got distracted by repeatedly EQing my rubbish drum tracks for a couple of hours which resulted in it ending up sounding exactly the same as when I started! I learned stuff though.
It’s like when you go shopping with your other half.
She tries a pair of shoes on but she isn’t sure, so you spend three hours dragging round every shoe shop in town and eventually she goes back and buys the first pair she tried on!
Going to have another crack at the panning later in the week, I’ve actually harshed the guitar sound somewhat so I’ll need to re-trace some steps.
