    I was stuck on thinking how I always do stereo and keep forgetting that AH does it differently.

    You do realize the main mix pan and the pan on each stereo mix are independent from
    one another.

    As for panning itself, for a live mix I don’t anything too extreme as in wide panning if any at all depending on the system layout and the audience seating.

    For recording your dealing with a more controlled listening space.

    The church only uses mono.

    When I record stereo there is no panning needed as everything is already ‘panned’ by their physical location.
    I rarely fake it by building a stereo field from individual mono tracks.

    At what level/mix are you panning at?
    To record in stereo with a stereo image you would still need to pan the needed inputs
    to somewhat represent their physical location from the viewer perspective, if that’s what your going after.

    You are confusing me.
    I don’t pan them at all as they are already ‘panned’ due to the physical position.
    My first choice is xy coincident miking although midside works well too.
    After that it depends on the source.
    Wider spaced AB or ABC if there is a hole in the middle.
    Sometimes close spaced but only if the angle and space is computed not arbitrarily using one of the named versions that only works well for the originator and their room not a general solution like so many people use without thinking further.

    sengpiel has many more useful stereo charts
    and many many more other pages about audio and related

    another good stereo info site

    And whenever possible a second backup recording done simultaneously.

    Well you did not exactly make it clear you were using room mics for recording.
    What do you send them to for recording?

    Sorry about that. I meant for my use I use my own mike set up to record.

    What gets used depends on the situation.
    On site for a small group I would often send them to a small digital recorder with xy, or else they go direct to my PC and DAW at home if I were doing more than 2 tracks.

    If needed I could rent a multitrack digital to record on site for a large event but that is not my main focus.
