I have a question of the sends panning. Does this panning control the actual sound of the send bus, or does it control the panning of the signal being sent to the send bus? I assumed it was the former, but I ran a little test that suggests it the latter.
- added an FX channel to a selected track, and made it a reverb.
- made the send pre-fader and turned the track all the way down so I’m only hearing the reverb.
- went to the tracks channel settings and panned the send all the way, hard right.
The result was that while the reverb was strongly on the right, there was still a lot of left channel information, despite being hard panned. So now I’m a bit confused, and wondering if the panning is just controlling the signal being sent to the FX. If anyone can explain this I would greatly appreciate it, I haven’t been able to find an answer anywhere.
