First, if this is the wrong area to post this, please bounce it appropriately.
I have been looking for info re: panning an audio track, say a single guitar on it’s own track, from left to right. Then eventually fading from what ever side its on back to center.
No image to post, but I hope this text gives a good representation:
(LGTR=Guitar panned left)
(RGTR=Guitar panned right)
(CGTR=Guitar panned center)
So, center to left, gradual pan from left through center to right, then back to center.
This of course might occur in a time space of 5 seconds to a minute … or whatever.
What I have done before with some success is to duplicate the guitar track twice giving a total of 3. 1 track will be panned left, 1 center and 1 right.
These tracks are “stacked”, left on top, center in the middle and right on the bottom for ease of function. I’ll first use the envelope tool to “quiet” down the left track to where I want it to come in, then gradually “enlarge” it to meet up with the center and off. Then with the right, pick up where the center and left fade out. Make sense?
Although this does work to some degree, it is time consuming and very cumbersome. Not to mention increasing the project file size. LOL
Any thoughts and information would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
