In using some orchestral samples, with a view to writing cinematic trailer music, some samples have a stereo width feature. Often, these seem to default to quite wide or the widest. Should they be left wide or narrowed?
I’ve found that ifI narrow the width, it can then be panned and it’s position pin-pointed by the ear - and I’m assuming I’m trying to put the orchestra instruments in their rightful stage place.
But is this the ‘right’ way to do it? Is there a standard way or a better way? Should I be leaving them wider?
