Hi Guardner,

This is strange, i've checked it in Logic and in standalone mode, it works as expected. Can someone else confirm it? I think the Pan law is -3db though.

Play a steady looping sound through a mono channel. Insert a level meter plug on the channel. Pan it from center to hard L/R. You'll see the level change.

I say this to allow people to work through some of this stuff by themselves. It's easy to test, what a pan law is doing in any given daw. Just play something you can meter and pan it and see what happens.
