    OT: Cpu-friendly ways of panning/narrowing stereo instruments?

    I´ve recently bought K2, Opus1 + Cubase SL3, which doesnt have the "combined panner" -mode or Surround panner that the big bro SX3 has. They are, according to Beat Kaufmanns tutorials, supposed to be good and cpu-friendly ways of panning for example VSL-instruments.

    What other ways do people use? (Think freeware!) I think, in my case, paying twice the money for SX3 just to have a combined panner, doesnt make sense!

    I havent started using K2 yet, because of h/w issues. Is there any good way of achieving what I`m after, yet light on the cpu, in K2?

    What about vst plugins? Mda has something called "image". It´s some kind of Mid/side thing.

    Would really appreciate advice, since my computer needs all the cpu-power it can have in order to use Opus1.

    What about DFX Monomaker?

    Buss to a pair of mono aux channels and narrow to your taste, or to just a mono aux channels. It works for me.

    Don't forget the obvious. You can just use one channel or the other for most stereo instruments, and get a great mono, pannable instrument.

    If you can save off the waveforms into a new mono instrument, you even get back some streaming bandwidth!

    Interesting comment Bruce ......
    I use an HDSP9632 which has an anolog stereo out. Do I need to use a stereo channel on my recording mixer (Digi 002)for libraries like TBO, RSP73 and Emperor, or is it OK to patch the 2 RCA outs to a mono 1/4" plug, so I only need one channel? (Hope this makes sense)
