The way I understand it.
For constant level across the spectrum, 3dB addition at the side or 3dB subtraction centre.
For mono summing apply/subtract 6dB.
Common average to keep everyone happy 4,5dB…Food for thought
Also, there’s enough flexibility in the ER-301 to build your own stereo channels by using two mono channels and making your own custom panning laws to create whatever pan behaviour you like - after all, at it’s heart panning is just two linked (or not) Linear VCA.
Regardless. As soon as we can build custom units in Lua this kind of thing could be easily implemented by anyone who cares for it.
So does this mean that if you put two panning VCA’s one after the other with their gains set to unity and panned to center, that your signal will be attenuated by -6dB (-3dB for the first and -3dB for the 2nd)? Are we OK with this?
I’ve had a play around with various attenuation values & found a 3.5dB cut, C position per VCA Pan or Mix Pan, is the most useful & workable especially when stacking multiple VCA’s.
Anyone else any thoughts on the matter?
Also noticed odd behaviour when panning via an external Sine/Tri LFO. Say I’m feeding +5V to -5V I get a spike around +/- 2.5V. Not on the latest firmware yet, I’ll get on it this afternoon & report back.
