    I'm getting a mixer soon and a question about panning has been bugging me. If you hook up a CD player to a mixer, how would you pan those channels so that it sounds like it would on a stereo?

    Most cheapie (sub $1000) mixers have a tape input with RCA jacks, and that's that. Also, they may have stereo inputs--no XLR, but two 1/4" jacks on the same channel strip. Once again, plug it in, and that's that. As an alternative, use two channels that have high Z inputs, and pan them hard left and hard right.


    All this assumes that you've got a mixer, power amps, and loudspeakers all set up for stereo use.

    I plan to run the mixer into a good quality home stereo.
