Panning question


I have search the FAQ and searched topics, but I can’t seem to find an answer to my question.

I don’t know if it is possible with Audacity, but I hope. :slight_smile:

I’m currently recording a song, and I have this 3 second guitar fill, which I thought would be cool if it could start with a 100% left pan, and then slide and end on a 100% right pan. Is it possible, and how?


If it’s a one-off, the manual way is probably easiest.

  1. Duplicate the track (select the track, then Ctrl+D)
  2. Set the first track to “Left Channel” (see:
  3. Set the duplicate track to “Right Channel”.
  4. Apply “Fade In” to one of the tracks and “Fade Out” to the other.

Ah that’s cleaver :slight_smile: I thought I knew this stuff, but I guess you learn something new every day.
