What creates width in a mix?
– key elements panned hard left and right.
– a strong sense of “center” channel comprised of kick, snare, and bass.
– low end material panned to the center from 700hz and below.
– stereo movement from less wide to wide. For example, choruses get wider than verses.
– a juxtaposition of stereo and mono ideas.
– delays used over reverbs
– two mono delays, or two mono reverbs instead of stereo delays and reverbs
– doubled rhythm instruments panned hard left and right, but not all of the time throughout the song.
– A GREAT ARRANGEMENT
