Two channel equal power pan.
Source: Pan.sc
Subclasses: LinPan2

Description

Two channel equal power panner. Pan2 takes the square root of the linear scaling factor going from 1 (left or right) to 0.5.sqrt (~=0.707) in the center, which is about 3dB reduction. With linear panning (LinPan2) the signal is lowered as it approaches center using a straight line from 1 (left or right) to 0.5 (center) for a 6dB reduction in the middle. A problem inherent to linear panning is that the perceived volume of the signal drops in the middle. Pan2 solves this.

Class Methods

Examples

// hear the difference, LinPan having a slight drop in the middle...
{ LinPan2.ar(SinOsc.ar(440), Line.kr(-1, 1, 5)) }.play

// ... whereas Pan2 is more smooth
{ Pan2.ar(SinOsc.ar(440), Line.kr(-1, 1, 5)) }.play

// other examples
{ Pan2.ar(PinkNoise.ar(0.4), FSinOsc.kr(2), 0.3) }.play;
