Stereo Image

Hey Luca!

I often find myself in the situation where it's hard for me to decide where to place specific elements in the mix for e.g. lead synths - Of course kick and bass stay dead mono in the center - But when I pan the lead sound left/right, the mix often loose punch and focus. On the other hand when I leave it centered, than the mix sounds to narrow in reference to other good Club tracks.
Should I go for stereo widening tools, use sample delays or reverb?

So how can I achieve a nice stereo Image without losing punch.

All the best

I start to open the side around 200/300hz on the lower parts of the synt buss, on the stereo bussI push more side on the overall mix around 700/800hz and I compress the mid range little bit. On another note for retain punch on the synts try to open L/R the synts and parallel a mono version just on the 1k down about 30% compare to the L/R channel

with opening up the l/r, are you refering to using unlinked L and R filters, and using arbitrarily different frequencies / settings for each side to produce width that way? thank you.
