I'm a little new to the concept of busses. I have a recording of a jazz quintet that includes three channels of drums: stereo overheard plus a bass drum mic. When I send these to a drum bus, the combined signal becomes mono, and the panning of the individual tracks, including the separation of the overheads, combines (gets lost) into the mono drum buss track.
What I'd like to do is pan the overheads separately, but send both to the drum bus for consistent EQ and effects. Is this possible? Is there something I need to do that I don't grasp?
When you create the bus you have a choice of mono, stereo or 5.1 on a pop up menu. If you create a stereo bus then the channel panning carries through.
Thanks for your answer, that solved it.
