OK got it thanks, was wondering what curves to use.
Any easy way to obtain some of the other laws, like 4.5dB?
I know what you guys mean about potentially disastrous results panning
stereo input material having already complex relationships between its
two channels. Probably no-one should try to pan that type of material
unless they know what they're doing or have a sophisticated panner.
Try to take care of that stuff earlier on in the chain, hopefully where the
sources are mono, even then the relationship could be complex.
But my own use case is a much simpler desire: To position or blend two
completely independent L and R sources - I double track my guitars.
So two resulting mono 'wave' tracks having mono strips both fed into
a stereo strip where a dual-instance shared-gui-controls mono distortion
is placed in its plugin rack. The shared plugin controls are a major
convenience of the stereo strip - I want the same sound from each guitar.
Currently there's no way for me to adjust the positions of what comes out
of this stereo strip - which is still completely independent L/R material
stuck all they way to the left and right.
So I cleaned up some code, trashed some old stuff, readied the system
for easily adding any new controllers, such as new panning controls.
After that, factor them into the mixing code. Then have some GUI fun.
So far so good, useful fixes even before proceeding, but... should I?
A3's modular panners make a lot of sense in light of these discussions -
let the user pick the "right tool for the right job".
Is there a suite of plugins, say LADSPA, that could do this for me?
Each plugin would arrange the four factors in different ways, like one
would arrange it as basic four faders, another would have one fader and
two panners and balance, another maybe two faders and two panners,
maybe add some sophistication like the delays and crossovers mentioned.
Basically entire 'strips' all on their own. (Ironically MusE displays control
outputs as meters in our generic GUIs, so if 'level' outputs were provided,
these GUIs really would be cool complete alternative advanced 'strips'.)
Couldn't find any. If none exist, anyone up to the task? Useful for all DAW?
