OK just to be clear I was not implying that the given pan formula
would be used to do a true 'stereo pan', just that the formula would be used
to adjust stereo 'balance' giving almost the same results as a true stereo
balance, but slightly different levels, but not a true 'stereo pan'.
But having said that, yes I'm wondering about a true 'stereo pan' feature.
How would such a feature work?
I imagine that if for example if there is sound exclusively on the L channel,
and 'stereo pan' is at center then moved all the way to the right, the sound
that was exclusively on the L channel now moves to the exact center?
That is, all the sound in the stereo field now moves 90 degrees to the right?
It means you'd never be able to completely move an exclusive sound
which was strictly on L, all the way to the right.
Does that sound correct Geoff?
I can easily implement a true 'stereo pan', given some rules.
Just, now I'd have to give the user the option of using either pan or balance,
complicating things a wee bit more, but probably nothing an additional
small pushbutton or two couldn't fix.
