Position of the Sound Source

The pan area of the VST MultiPanner plug-in shows you the position of the sound source and allows you to move it.

In the pan area, the virtual position of the sound source is shown as a circle. The left and right front channels are shown in yellow and red. All other input channels are shown in blue.

You can position the sound source anywhere inside the room and even move it out of the pan area. This can be useful for extreme panning positions, such as panning all channels hard right. To show the position outside the pan area, activate Overview Mode.


If you work with mono channels, the sound source corresponds to the mono channel.
