    Is the pan in percentage? Also, what perspective is it supposed to achieve? That is, with those settings is it supposed to sound like you're in the audience of a concert, or is this more representative of a studio setting?

    Thanks, by the way. I'm collecting information like this.

    Hey Letterbox,

    It's actually a GM Template ( back in the days where stereo samples did not exist ) . It sets each instrument to it's panning in middle row.
    Pan is 63 middle, 127 right and 0 left.

    I wouldn't recommend midi panning for acoustically recorded instruments. You might lose some crucial stereo information.

    Theodor-
    Great info, but where are the cellos and double basses?

    Herman-
    I don't dispute your comment, just don't understand it. Could you elaborate?
    Love your R.A.W. stuff by the way!

    Thanks Carl.
    Orchestral instruments are mostly recorded in stereo at more distance than studio samples, and lots of times in concert halls. This means they will have more ambience. This ambience will sound less natural when midi panning is used, because it discards some of the stereo information instead of narrowing it. If you use a DSP panner like the ones found in Gigastudios' DSP mixer to narrow the panning it preserves the original data. If samples are recorded far (like 10-15 meters) you should be careful with narrowing the image at all. If we're talking mono instruments that are recorded dry midi panning will do fine. I hope this clears it up a bit.

    My daw and reverb boxes pan in degrees or percentages left and right of center. Here's my cheat sheet in the units they use. Left of center is expressed in negative numbers.



    I was aiming for a point of view a couple of feet behind behind the conductor when I worked this out.

    HV, that is a most handy reference. Thanks!
