    Currently, the pan on stereo channels is not very useful.

    It should be a width control over the balance of the stereo image. On the LED display, there should be two dots represent how the left and right are placed. When centered, it should sum it to mono. In this way, when we encounter some signals that just have the left channel, we can narrow it down to mono quickly.

    Isn’t it exactly working this way?

    No, if you pan to the left on a stereo channel now, you have nothing on the right.

    I think Hawk is talking about the ST1/2 coming in over dSnake.
    I do know if you use both TRS inputs you can not manually make ST inputs a mono signal within the desk
    You need to either use just the left/mono TRS put on the desk, OR if using the AR2404 manually Y split the inputs there.
    There is another Original post earlier about this and all of the options.

    I think what’s being asked for here is a pan/antipan control, much like how linked mono channels currently work.

    Yes sure maybe?
    Hawk dose not actually say where the signal is coming from?
    Looking back at Hawkes history he had an AB168 issue where he talked about exchanging to get an AR2412 to get more channels from his QU16.
    Maybe he suddenly found “hey I can easily get into the Stereo channels on an AR2412” and then found they are dedicated stereo channels?

    Just assumptions, however I feel his wanting to “anti-pan” Stereo channels
    Hold on, you cant pan a stereo channel?
    If you link channels you can deselect the pan control and then get say centre and left or centre right by panning one or the other in linked channel mode.

    Of course the ST 1/2 do not have a linked tab within their processing screen.
    Maybe that could be a good request?

    I have never heard that saying. I like it!

    @dhak, no matter it’s local or dSnake, the ST channels have the same panning method. And yes it will also help the case where you want to use ST as mono via AR2412.

    @mervaka, yes!

    Sure, makes sense for ST inputs. Had linked channels in mind…
