I am having a panning problem using GPO 4 in Sonar 8.5.3. I don't know if the problem is caused by Sonar or GPO, or both. I just posted the following message in the Sonar forum at cakewalk.com. But since the problem might possibly be caused by GPO, I will post it here as well. Thanks in advance to anyone who could help.
Using Sonar 8.5.3
The two tracks in question have outputs assigned to the Aria Player, to the newest GPO 4. The first track is on channel 1, assigned to a violin. The second track is on channel 2, and assigned to a clarinet. No other tracks are assigned to GPO nor the Aria Player.
The first track is panned hard left, 100% to the left. I can see that both in the Sonar track view, and also on the mixer tab of the Aria Player window.
The second track is panned hard right, 100% to the right. I can also see that panning both in the Sonar track view, and on the mixer tab of the Aria Player window.
Yet, on playback , one hears both of those parts equally on either side. In other words, it sounds like they are both panned directly in the center, not according to how I set it.
I looked in the Event List for both tracks, to see if there were any pan controllers in it, that could conflict with the track settings. No, there are none.
What is going on? Can anyone help? Why are the two instruments not panning?
Thank you in advance.
