Show/Hide Pan Knob – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day. #LogicProX @StudioIntern1

  Show/Hide Pan Knob

Show or hide the pan knob on channel strips. This command only works in mixer windows (stand-alone and bottom of Arrange window). If you want to hide the pan knob in the inspector channel strips (far left of Arrange window) you have to use the contextual menu to check/uncheck the Pan Knob setting.

On the topic of panning…

Instead of having instruments compete with one another in a mix, you can separate elements by positioning audio and instruments in the stereo mix from left to right. Typically, you want to have the most important tracks (lead vocals, solo instruments, drums, bass) positioned in the center of the mix, and have other tracks (rhythm instruments, instruments doubling the melody) to the sides. In general, most of the mix should be close to the center, with tracks panned far to the sides only for an unusual effect.
