    To pan, or panning refers to the act of moving the perceived location of a sound source within a stereo soundstage. Generally works by reducing or making louder the particular sound source in either the left or right channel of a stereo output. Although slightly more sophisticated electronics are used to control this movement accurately, the net result is the same. If a source is panned hard left, then it will appear at only the left speaker, and likewise with the right side. The amounts of signal present in both speakers will determine the exact location of the sound source in between the left and right sides in the stereo field.
