Panning?

Hey thanks for doing this Tchad.

What's your ideology on panning? Are you a L-C-R only guy, a "never hard pan" guy, or somewhere inbetween?

Hughs SRS AK-100. $75.00 on ebay nowadays. I bought mine the day they went on sale in the early '90's, $225 retail, but within a year they stopped marketing them. Just didn't catch on.
A consumer stereo enhancer that works great for reverbs and delays, single tracks.......experiment.
There is no plug-in I know of which competes. Prosonique Ambisone comes close and is good, but it doesn't take the place of the Hughes.

Tchad,
what about stuff like overheads? Knowing you often record them binaurally, do you just simply pan them hard left and right? Or do you often sum them to mono?
What about the OH compressed mults? Would you pan these the same way then?

And last, ho do you deal with all these (pseudo) stereo synth tracks? Do you generally get rid of one of the sides?
Thank You. Doug

Depends on the tune and direction of the mix. Changes, but often hard pan. Same with the compressed. I've done some mixes (please don't ask which ones/can't remember) where the original OH were panned left and the compressed were panned right.
If the pseudo stereo sounds cool I use it but often people don't check sampler tracks or synth tracks to see if it's a mono patch, and I get lots of 'stereo' tracks that aren't stereo. Then I do get rid of a side.
