This most likely doesn’t apply in your case, but just FYI, we use a lot of CD accompaniment, and we bring the two channels in on two un-linked channels. We also run our system in mono and seldom use the pan control.

For split-track pieces, the operator can easily mute or turn down the vocal channel using the channel mute or fader, rather than having to select the channel and use the pan control. Since the music is sent pre-fader to stage monitors, the mute button is used to mute vocals.

The disadvantage is that this requires two channels whereas using one of the stereo channels uses one fader and the pan control.
