Panning effects

    Could anyone tell me why loop effects should be panned? Is it not better to live them in mono so that they are at the center of the stereo field? Any guideline on panning them properly.

    If you like the way an effect sounds mono, make it mono. If you want to create more three dimensionality (like adding life to a bland synth string track), then use them in stereo. Sometimes mono is easier to work with if you want to do things like auto-panning an effect from left to right, or precisely locate a delay (for instance) opposite from a dry source in the stereo field.

    But I'm just speaking about effects in general. I'm not sure what you mean by a loop effect.

    By loop effetcs I am referring to effects which are generally not inserted. such as reverb, delay, etc...
