PANNING LEFT AND RIGHT AT THE SAME TIME?

Hello all. After reading a few books on music production ive read suggestions of panning the high hats to the left and to the right but i am wondering how i should go about this in Cubase Artist 9. Should i just make a copy of the Groove Agent instrument Track and make one panned left and the other panned right, or is there an easier way??? Cheers.

This only applies if you’re using the Stereo Combined Panner, only available in Cubase Pro:

Using the regular panner, this just means that the signal is in the center position.

To use the regular panner you could make a copy of the the track and pan one right and one left - put them slightly out of sync and it won’t just leave the sound in the center.
