Hi. I’m attempting to pan the layers of a stereo 2D sound so that one layer is panned slightly forward of the listener and one slightly behind. I’ve put the Surround Pan effect on each layer and have succesfully panned the second layer to the rear but when I try to pan the first element to the front it doesn’t move to the front speakers but instead moves into to centre whilst attenuating all other channels. This means that i can’t have my stereo asset noticeably in front of the listener without losing its stereo quality. Normally (ie in DAW apps) this would be dealt with by using the Centre % control (or equivalant) of the Surround Panner, but this control does not exist in the Surround Pan effect.

Is there any way to work around this? Ideally I want to be able to pan this layer into L,R,LR and RR speakers and be able to control the centre level independently via a parameter.

Thanks.

Hey,

A new effect has recently been added to designer called "Speaker Level" which will give you the ultimate control over the speakers I think you are looking for.

Try that instead of Surround Pan and see if it’s what your looking for.

Cheers

That sounds perfect! I see from the revision history that the Speaker Level effect comes with Designer 4.21.05. Is this compatible with API version 4.20.02?

No the effect had to be added to the code as well for the runtime, so you have to use 4.20.05 and above.

edit: actually because it is a new feature, it was only added in development branch, so 4.21.05 and above.

So close and yet so far :)
Can you say when this feature is likely to work its way into the stable branch?

Thanks.
