Panning Mono Sources

When recording mono sources such as vocals and guitars how does one then go about panning them in the mix? All I can think is to convert the file to stereo but that is a waste of drive space and then I might as well have recorded them in stereo in the first place.


If you route the Mono Audio Channel to the Stereo Out, you get common stereo panner, and you can pan it as you wish. The same is for Mono to 5.1, etc.

Thank you for clarifying this Martin. I had my mono > stereo configured vocal tracks routed to a mono > stereo group instead of a stereo > stereo group. As such there were no pan controls on the vocal tracks until I routed it to a stereo > stereo group.
