To move an audio signal from one output to the other. Panning a sound between two speakers changes the apparent position of the sound.
The act of moving a signal around in the sound field to sound as though it is coming from a specific direction. Whether stereo, surround or any other field format.
Panning refers to the volume at which a sound is played out of two separate speakers. If the sound coming out of one speaker is louder than the other then the sound will seem to be closer to that speaker.
The left/right positioning of a signal within a stereo image.
Term used to describe the position, or "placement", of a single sound within the stereo spectrum (soundstage).
the location of a signal within a stereo field. It can also refer to the dynamic behaviour of the signal - for example, where echo repeats are panned from left to right.
The positioning of sounds between the left and right speakers to create a stereo effect. (See "Mixer")
Positioning a graphic within the framework of its cropped borders.
the ability to place a monaural signal at any point in the stereo soundfield of a stereo signal using amplitude clues for localization. Short for "panorama," a pan control on a mixing board is a rotary control where the extreme counterclockwise position routes a signal to the left-channel output, the extreme clockwise position routes the signal to the right and the center position sends the signal equally to the right and left sides.
Positioning sound's source within a stereo panorama to left and right. This is done with a pan pot (potentiometer) or a joy stick.
Panning is the spread of a monaural signal in a stereo or multi-channel sound field. A typical pan control is constant power. At one extreme, the sound appears in only one channel.
