# Panning in Cubase

Panning a track in Cubase goes from the “all to left” with 100L, decreasing to 0 (the Center) and then again to 100R for the “all to right”. In many other DAWs the range is from 0 to 128 (and 64 is the Center) or from -63 to +64 (0 the Center) or something like this.
Now, what I have to do if I want to set the Pan of the tracks of a Cubase project in the same way of the same tracks in the project of another DAW ( whit different “range”)?
Am I forced to laborious mathematical proportions every time? Or is there a quicker way ? (for example an option to switch in cubase from the 100 to the 64 range option?!).

Why should anybody want that?
The 128 steps are just a limitation from the MIDI values. 200 steps are more accurate.

And I know only one DAW that is doing this…

While I admit to finding st10ss’s reply humorous, I will proffer a real answer, while en même temps asking mr. @st10ss to create a fade on his snark track.

If the other daw has a 128 range, in Cubase send the fader value via a midi CC#, using the Generic Remote, for instance.

This is not a real answer… I guess.

This is a limitation from MIDI as well…

A good thing in this case, if I understand correctly the only purpose is to take values on a 128 scale and input them into Cubase, thereafter having the advantage of finer control. Forever! (just not with the GR)

For Midi track, in Cubase, the range is “-63 to +63”. For Audio and instruments tracks L100 to R100.
I think the only “easy” solution is to solve an equation, indeed a proportion. “A” is the pan value in 128 scale, “B” the value I want to use in the Cubase “200 scale”, so to find B (if I still know A) I have to solve A:B=128:200. I need a mathematician!

Maybe `Close enough for Jazz` :

• Audio Pan = Midi Pan * 1.5
• Midi Pan = Audio Pan * 2/3
