Panning w/ Aux Busses in PT10

Hi all! I apologize in advance if this is a stupid question or if this topic has already been covered. I have looked around the forum and have found similar topics, but none have quite answered my question. So here I go:


I am currently mixing a song in PT10 and have sent all of my drum tracks to one stereo bus. The drum tracks are panned exactly where I want them to be, but the stereo bus seems to be panning all of the drums back to the center and ruining my stereo image.

Is there a way to stop the bus from centering everything? Or is there another way I can consolidate all of my drum tracks and keep the panning where I want?

Thanks!

Hmm...that's not right.

So - your tracks are all going to eg "bus 1-2" and then you've got a stereo aux set up with input "bus 1-2" and output "master bus" or whatever? If this were the case, as soon as you send eg overheads to bus 1-2, the stereo image would remain at the bus too.

it sounds to me you've got a mono aux bus, but outputting to the stereo master, which might be confusing you. Try uploading a screen grab of the mixer page (mixer NOT in narrow view so we can see the routing!) and I'm sure the answer will be obvious.

Fixed it! It was a mono bus.. feel pretty dumb for not realizing that sooner.

This is my first big project with a band and have never had enough tracks to use an aux bus before now. Thanks for your help!

My favourite sort of problems to fix - the obvious ones!
