When you pan left or right, volume becomes lower, or that is how is perceived.

Is there some rule how much you should increase volume when you pan left or right, for example for every 1% panning from centre, increase volume level by X db?

Just to add question: is panning in MTS just lowering volume of one side?

It's simulated geometry. When the sound source is moved from the center, the distance between source and reciever increases, theoretically reducing the sound level.
Also the sound is directional and is being projected past the receiver so the perceived power level is reduced by a function of the angle betweeen the source and the receiver.
There are some other fancy theories behind it but that's how I understand it. :wink:

With pannng you can get some space in your mix.

Thanks!
Didn't understand word of it, but thanks... :roll:

I thought that MTS just reduced volume level of one side, but after closer look, it does compensate volume and moves sound instead of just reducing volume left or right.

If you're talking about stereo signals (rather than mono): it doesn't route the left channel to the right channel or vice versa. It just fiddles with the levels.

You can use a Stereo Effect if you want to pan the two channels separately.
