I was starting a mix with the Yamah AW16G a few days ago. Per standard procedure, I was deciding on pan positions. On one channel, (#6,) although the pan appeared to be set at 4-right, when I played back the mix, it either sounded in the left channel or seemed to "float around" from left to right. None of the other channels had this issue. Other than the panning issue, the track on channel 6 seemed to be just fine. After fiddling with knobs for awhile, (technical term), I finally decided to pan the channel 6 track to around 10-right, just to find out what would happen. Once I did that, the track seemed to be at about 4-Right as I had originally intended, and no longer had the "floating effect". The channel 6 track has a soloist section; another channel has a different soloist. The other channel is working just fine. (My intent with all of this was to have soloists sounding at opposite pan positions, as though there were two performers on different sides of a stage.)

Aside from the weird 4-right setting acting up, the AW16G did just fine. When I played back the entire mix, all was as I had intended. Still, although I know that there is a way to get the pan to float intentionally, I did not see any setting which would have caused this. I would prefer not to avoid channel 6 entirely from here on out. At this point, it seems to be a mystery without much in the way of clues.

Comment is invited.

Never heard of that problem. Make sure Autopan is not engaged in one of the EFF buses. It sounds as if you know about that.

Also check any verb you may be using. There are Pan settings for the verb return and also High Pass and Lo Pass Filters. You would find them on the last page of the EFF edit screens. ( you have to use cursor down key to show extra screens. Some EFF have 3 pages of settings to Tweak) You can set Pan for the verb return on this screen. If you Pan your performance to one side and then direct the verb return to the other, and also define which frequencies are sent through the EFF, by setting the HPF and LPF, you can create a situation where the guitar mostly sounds from the main Pan setting but bits of it come through the verb to the other side. I have used that technique way more often than the Autopan that the EFF library offers.

Doubt that your issue is what I described, ( unless you were previously tweaking !) but I thought I'd bring it to your attention when it came to mind, prompted by your mentioned of your issue.

Let us know what you determine. I have never heard of this issue as you describe it.
