Adjust the Spread parameter in the Panner.

depends on what you are trying to achieve, as there are multiple methods of achieving the same result.

Panning works best with mono sources so you can position in the stereo field. Stereo sources are meant to be stereo (stereo music) , therefore not panned. If the left and right source channels are different music tracks (presumably mono) then you really need to import them as mono.

Hi, i understand you, but i work with some DAW's (Cubase, Logic Pro, Audition..) and if i have a stereo track and for example i pan 100% i hear only left channel, i don't have signal on the right channel...i don't know if i have a problem with my settings... or it's a problem from Davinci Resolve / Fairlight... i think is not normal if i pan left 100% ( or right) to hear and have signal on right channel and reverse.

You can see that in my photos.

For me when i pan left 100% (or right), the left channel increase volume with aprox 25-50% i think and the right channel decrease volume with aprox 25-50% i think...it's not a major problem but...for ex... if i want to hear only one channel from a stereo track (shot with my UMP4.6K...1 lav mic + 1 mic ambiance...or 2 lav mic)...how can i do quickly...i must set in "clip attributes" / audio to make mono channel for each channel (make two mono tracks: L + R) ?


I ask all this beacuse i want to know if i have a problem or it normal in Davinci Resolve / Fairlight.



Thank you.

Instantiate an instance of the Fairlight AFX Stereo Fixer on the Audio Clip or Track.

Hello Amer,
Try with this Stereo Audio in a Stereo Audio TL with a Stereo Audio Bus

Then do what you were told: Pan to Left and Spread to PNT

Normally: you only have to hear in the left channel, even if the source channel is on the right. :)

Amer, as mentioned in my previous post, instantiate an instance of the Fairlight AFX Stereo Fixer on the Audio Clip or Track and select either "Left Only" or "Right Only".

It is important to understand that Resolve's Panner is not a balance control.

Hi,

Thank you for support, I wanted to know if this is working Davinci Resolve / Fairlight or it's a problem in my system.

It's not a major problem for me but now i but now I understand how it works.
