i use cubase le4 and am trying to pan 2 guitars on separate tracks left and right. the problem is if i pan one say, left i can still kinda here it in the other speaker. is it because for example, im using a stereo reverb? its also doing it with compression too though.
im kinda still green with recording software.

Hmmm, not sure mate. I have no problem with cool edit, when I pan a guitar fully to one side, it completely eliminates it from the other.

I rarely use digital reverb on guitars though, I get the reverb from the amp and the room so, it seems likely to me that it is something to do with your stereo reverb. In fact I might experiment with it later.

U know what mate? after all the constant issues i have with interfaces and new software i really do contemplate going back to cool edit myself. i know i takes time to learn new stuff and all that, but i seem to be doing too much learnin and not enough playin these days.

Thats what I liked about Cool Edit. Its totally intuitive. You want effects on a track you press "FX" on that track. You want to record on a particular track you press "R" on that track. The looping is a piece of p!ss too.

I've seen Reason in action round a friends house, a guy who does loads of house/dance/hardcore, he wanted some live guitar to sample and it seemed nowhere near as easy.

Hmmm, I'm not sure either.

Are your guitar tracks recorded in mono?

I know that in Cubase SE you can't pan 100% in either direction. I think 64 is the max value. But even though the numbers say that, it sounds like a hard pan to me. I'm wondering if it is a hard pan or not.

And from what I've gathered, Cubase LE is particularly counterintuitive as far as the Cubase family goes. SE is pretty easy to get along with, although I'm running an older version I got for $100.

Uh, at least one more time . . .

I don't know about the compression, but the stereo reverb could certainly be the cause . . . try it dry, and see what happens.

So you are panning them L\R 100%?

i think i may have recorded in stereo.

cant really try anything just now as my comp. is in for repairs.
but hey if i can get it sorted before it gets back its all good.
