I was taken aback in a good way - by the LCR approach in particularly. Never was a big fan of hard left hard right until now. It is another piece to the puzzle or airing things out in a stereo mix. Quite a nifty mixing tool to say the least! Thanks Kenny

I'm new to mixing, and considered panning basically LCR. This series explained some of panning features (triangle, square wave) and gave me new ideas and insights as to how to use panning in the future. I'm glad I watched, listened, and learned!
