I'm finally ready to start doing some heavy lifting with my GPO4 symphony project in Sonar 8.5 Studio. I'm about to start adding in all the necessary MIDI controller data, so as I do this I need to ask a question:
I wanted to use CC10 to control panning, so I assigned the appropriate values to each instrument in my virtual orchestra. Then when I opened the MIDI file that I generated from Finale in Sonar, I checked and saw that the CC10 entries were missing on each instrument track. However, before I go blindly off with adding CC10 back in, I wanted to know if it would be better to do my panning through the audio channels in Sonar, or is it six of one, half a dozen of the other?
By the way, I'm currently using ARIA's Ambience reverb, but I'll be going over to Altiverb soon. I don't know if this would make any difference on how panning should be handled, but I figured I should mention it just in case...
