Is there a tried and tested pan position you stick to for bass/drums/guitar/vocals, or do you change it depending on the song?
I usually put Vocals and drums at 12 o'clock, Bass 9 o'clock, and guitar at 3 o'clock. Seem like these are the best positions I can come up with.
I haven't experimented with more than 4 tracks or overdubbed instruments.
Do you pan your overdubbed guitar parts and bass parts together in the same position, or change them around?
