So at least I can quickly compensate the 6db level drop this effect causes.
The 6 db drop has to do with pannig law that is being used. As a workaround you could add a GEQ 10 or an Envelope Shaper leave its setting to nuteral and just use the output gain there.
Really surprised there’s no gain knob on the Autopan plugin.
The panning law only applies to mono tracks I’m pretty sure.
So yes, +1 for gain knob!
