I assumed that the link button in Dual Pan would actually link the left pan with the right pan, so that they moved in unison. Not at all it converts the left pan button into Pan and the Right Pan button into Width, yes you got it Binaural Pan.

The obvious question is why bother having a separate Binaural Pan?

People who can't dance always blame the band.

Do some listening tests. When using Dual Pan (no link) setup L and R positions eg 10 and 2 o'clock. Switch into Link mode. Notice nothing changes audibly. Width setting changes (to create the 10-2 o.clock width) and pan goes to centre as it should. You only have to move the Pan control to move this narrow image to the left or right. If you wanted to achieve that without link you would need to automate both L and R.

Binaural Pan is not the same either. Its width goes way out to 200% and the audible effect is quite different. Its designed to either create a mono signal and be able to pan that, or a very wide stereo image and pan control becomes a balance for L and R.

Dual Pan is good for bringing in a stereo image closer to the centre and shifting that either to the left or right.

They certainly overlap though. They can both create mono and pan mono.

Many thanks for that wonderful explanation, sadly its more than probable that my old ears will not pick up such subtleties. :D :shock: :cry:
