But back to the question in my first post - I've been thinking about the following suggestion by MadMan Dan:
Try pre-cancelling some of the effect by panning at 9 and 3 or 10 and 2. That way you have some spread, but something that's more ready for mono.
'm a little puzzled ...
If the problem occurs because the L and R signals from the synth are collapsed to mono, wouldn't the same condition be present after doing what was suggested? I'm not able to get past thinking that the process described gets to the same situation, but in two steps rather than one (the two steps being first panning to 9-3 or 10-2, then collapsing to mono when listening on a single speaker, like a laptop). Where am I going wrong in that thinking?
I guess just trying it out is what I need to do, irrespective of the theory ... I just like to figure the "why" of how things work as well as just doing them!
Thanks MadManDan, or anyone else -
