I\'m using GigaStudio (hosted on a separate computer) to play a stereo violin sample. The sample is brought into my tracking computer using SPDIF. I record the violin sound to a stereo track within SONAR.
When I try to pan the signal to the left, I hear little discernable movement in the stereo field. When I try to pan the signal to the right, the sound goes away entirely. I get this result whether I use the panning control in GigaStudio or the control inside SONAR.
What must I do in order to move a stereo signal left or right the way you would a mono track? Do I somehow have to record the stereo signal coming into SONAR as a mono track? How do I do this?
Furthermore, how does the pan control work for a stereo track? I intially thought the GOS sounds might be recorded according to their respective position on a typical stage, i.e., violins and violas to the left, cellos and basses to the right. I recorded a bass to check this assumption and got the same result mentioned above.
