    Aux Buses, Reverb, and Pan
    If I send several tracks to an aux bus and put a delay on that bus to send those instruments "backward" in the mix, does it preserve the panning information on the bus or do I somehow have to create a left channel and right channel bus? Speaking of that, the simple delay tool does not seem to have an option to delay by milliseconds (only samples). Is there a good reason for that? Is there an alternate tool I can use to create a simple delay of, say, 11 ms? -Sami

    Hi Sami Welcome to the forums! There's different options when using sends in Logic. First set up the Send to a Bus. Now click and hold on the active Send slot in the Channel strip. from the drop down menu you can choose to send the signal to the Aux: -Post Pan -Pan Fader -Pre Fader As for that... the only way I use to add delays in milliseconds to a track is to use the 'Delay' setting in the Region's Parameters area in the Inspector. This doesn't work on Aux Tracks as it only delays the contents on a track. So, you might wish to bounce the Aux channel to audio and then delay that in milliseconds. But the Sample Delay plug-in... doesn't create delays in milliseconds... (it's known as the Sample Delay!) Hope that helps Rounik

    Thanks. So, I think you are also implying that a aux bus preservers left and right channel assuming I do it post-pan. Right? -Sami

    Yup... of course if the Aux channel is mono then it won't ;-) Rounik btw... stereo channel strips in Logic: The Pan pot is erm... not a pan pot. It's a balance control... For true panning on a stereo channel strip, insert a Gain plugin and use the balance/pan there. Compare the results, you should be able to hear the difference. :)
