A question about which sample libraries work bast at layering, or, do you really need to layer if you have good sounding samples? As well, if your sample libraries are already pre-panned, do you really need to pan them when mixing? I was actually taught a technique with pre-panned libraries to pan them to the opposite side to create a better stereo field.
Or would it be better to just apply a stereo imager to create a wider field? I do this with Ozone 9 but two problems I encounter, even if it’s pre-panned, it doesn’t sound panned enough but if I use the stereo imager, it tends to lean more to one side. How can I sole this?
