    Default Panning Tracks

    Panning Tracks

    Each instrument in iReal Pro is created in a separate MIDI track. But the program has no built-in capability for panning the tracks left and right.

    However, one can save an IReal Pro file as a MIDI. If one then opens the file in another program, the tracks will be separated.

    I use Garage Band to open iReal Pro MIDI files. Each track is separate and can be panned. This is useful for making recordings that sound more stereophonically realistic.

    Here's an example. I panned the bass left and the drums right. The piano is GarageBand's Grand Piano voice.

    Hi Jer,

    Nice to finally hear what you sound like! Swinging and tasty. The stereo panning and GarageBand instruments sound very good and quite life-like.

    +1 here!
    The different A & B section rhythms are especially tasty and effective on that tune.
    DRAT! No apparent tip-jar....

    Thanks, gents.

    Bob, to accentuate the difference I use a pedal on the whole A section.

    The move to Garageband works well on swing tunes like this. On ballads, drum parts don't translate well from iReal Pro to Garageband, as the latter doesn't have any good brush sounds.

    Neither does iReal Pro, unfortunately.
