I have been doing some recording for a rap duo in ProTools and have some questions about proper panning techniques.. The vocals currently sound pretty decent, but I feel they can be much better and I think that it's in the panning or compression.. I currently use between 4-5 stacks and center two and pan hard L/R the other two and it sounds pretty good. However, I have been told that I shouldn't hard pan my verses, only my hooks.. In addition, I also have never found that "perfect" software compressor for the vocals.. I am using T-Racks & Waves right now.. Any suggestions would be MUCH appriciated!
