I have just completed a stereo score for an indie film, and am trying to do a 5.1 version of the music. I used GPO for 80% of the score and am running cubase 3sx.
I set up my routing in cubase, and found an interesting thing. If I have a harp sound for example, and keep it at it's default panning, I can pan the sound front to back, but the sound doesn't really go Left to right!
I remember from my old pre-vsti days that most synths went mono on the left output, so when I pan the harp to the left, I can pan the instrument Left, Right, Surround Left, Surround Right.
Is this normal for GPO in a surround situation, or is there a better way to have full control over placement?
