    I know I ask you guys a lot of questions, but how do most people pan vocals? I've been panning the highs hard left and right and putting the lows at about 50. It doesn't seem right to me.
    Cheers

    The main vocal is always center. When I have 1 double, I place it center but 4-6 dbs lower. I might pan it 10-20 left or right if I need to have this part more audible though
    What I like doing is having 1 main vocal and 2 doubles, which I pan hard left and right

    After I have ran through the mix, I find some of your.wav ( DI guitar and Vocals ) need more fixed during recording.

    It would be better if the recording real bass and drums. It will enchance more and give power to the mix.

    Thanks man I appreciate you taking the time to do it! The guitars definitely sound better and vocals too. Not really digging the drums but over all a much better mix than mine :)

    main vocals always in the center for me...
    if you want to enhance one part in the song, maybe record the same line 2 more times and pan them right and left...it could work for scream and clean vox..
    also try recording a low and then a high scream in the centre, it comes out like a really cool scream effect :)
