Could there be 3 recordings? Let's say 66L, C, and 66R? Will be bad?
Sorry for my english.
Like most of these things, you can place them anywhere, but to get the most effective double track, they need to be as close to the original as possible. You can of course pan them but the further out they become they more you will hear the slight discrepancies of the performances.
