Is anyone doing this ?
Not recording stereo and panning one left and the other right.
Just keeping them panned the same.
Any benefits or disadvantages that you've found.
Thanks.
Enjoy the rest of your day.

It depends on what you're going for. I generally record my guitars in stereo, but in most cases, I end up panning them left/right for rhythm and lead. That way I have it in stereo if I need it, but mostly I just needed it placed to a side. Panning instruments was explained to me in a way that made sense. I was told to imagine a band playing on stage. Each person has his or her own space on the stage. Drums are usually in the back roughly in the center.(but toms are panned in an array). One guitarist is on the right, the other on the left. The bass player is off to one side or the other. Singer in the center and backing vocals off to the side. Then depending on the sound I'm looking for, I put everything in it's place and roll with it. Getting off the subject slightly, there was a discussion here years ago on which side of the stereo spectrum the high hat goes. From the drummers perspective, it goes left (for a right handed player). But to the audience, the high hat is on the right. Is there a right or wrong way? I don't think so. Music, like art, is in the eye of the artist.

You can pan where ever suits the mix. I often pan the returns from effects, especially If i am using the send/rreturn for just one instument, I will have the mono track panned one way and the stereo return spread across the streo image, but usually favouring the opposite side. I also use the HPF and LPF to designate what makes it into that return.

16 track recording started in the late 60's and panning tended to be hard left/right for gits. over time, panning gits has moved closer to the centre and is now closer to a 10/2 clockface

I do not follow trends and go on what sounds right to me.

For me, the idea is create space. that is why i work in mono until the last minute.

To stop gits stepping on each other i pay far mote attention to what is played and tone. those you get right at tracking. panning creates a bit more space at the end. another factor is reverb, which also moves things around.

Guitar and amp choices also play a part so things do not get mashed up or phased.

For me, be very careful what you play and how it sounds going in. let the music mix itself.

I often have to go back and redo git bass tracks and play much simpler.

less is more. what is not played is just as important as what is.

Cheers guys.
What got me thinking was if anyone was using a say, line 6 pod that have the left and right outs, do they use just the left mono or record using both the outs.
Thanks for your thoughts.

Yeah i used to do that in my analogue days. i had a motley aby pedal which split the guitar signal. one went to a twin and tge other to a boogie.

I got some really nice blended clean/dirty sounds. i sometimes panned each track L/R and sometimes bounced the blend to a single track. I can do it with my modeller but never do. could also be used for stereo delays and such

I use a Pod that goes stereo left/right into a mixer(along with two keyboards) and the mixer stereo out goes in to two inputs of the Yamaha. When I pan, I can't tell anything is lost. But I don't have the best ears for engineering so who knows.

Interesting...I was concerned because I thought I detected a little phase problem, but maybe not.
Thanks anyway guys.
At least now I know which ones are still alive in the forum :)
Enjoy your day.
