For some reason, I noticed that the VA Synth is the only instrument that seems to have an element of randomness to it, since even without tuning it still has more spread when I pan it like that. It's a small difference, but it's certainly noticeable with earbuds :P
I compared having two channels panned, one on each side, to having 1 as well as two channels at center and I could have sworn there still was a difference. Upon closer inspection ChordsBoy did set one VA synth to -6 tune and the other to +6 tune.
If you just take two channels and each pan them to one side it won't do anything though. You need to add a difference to both channels. Otherwise you're just doing something useless
having 2 channels with different pan sides creates spread, i use it a lot as well, especially with drums, with 1 higher pitch than the other
@VCNT_MND unfortunately I could not use the imported samples ChordBoy used to design his beat for I use a free account.
@ChordsBoy So I noticed you don't have any actively changing effects (which I guess makes moving clips less complicated), however, something I did learn is how you have two copies of a channel for each pan side. I don't really use pan except rarely for an effect alternating sides such as 2:47. Along with recreating the percussion (since I couldn't use your imported ones), and making the extra bassline, adding a VA synth with vibrato was one of the early things I did. I'm also more accustomed to a straight 4 kick or a"boots n cats n" kind of beat, so later in the song I ditched the old beat.
After finishing the song, it has some really nice elements that I wished I'd have added. Amazing take on it, seriously :D
Oh yes!! You added just what this song needed: Vibrato :O
woah. that drop is fire.
that first snare is the weirdest thing ive ever heard
