A lot. There's tons of songs that make sound come out of one ear piece and the other and keep doing that. This is sooo annoying and ruins some songs i like.. I mean, if it's a real live concert they wouldn't be able to do that shit would they? Cant they just leave it so the sound comes out from both ear pieces.. shit it's so annoying
Have similar thoughts??

You mean like panning?

and you wanna scrap 30 years of stereo technology because it doesn't sound like in the "real shows?"

that hendrix song that has the guitar panned only on the right channel and the vocals on the left (for the entire song), its annoying as hell
#10
Especially when it goes for a long time, it's like your left/right ear gets all the sound and the other is so dull
#11
yeah, screw stereo sound. that stuff's laaame. /sarcasm

p.s.
i like how the people with toki and skwisgaar avatars replied one right after the other...

Trust me, this effect is used in so many songs it's not funny. If you can find a modern day song with absolutely no panning, then... wow...

It just depends how they go about it, I get really annoyed if they pan one of the main parts directly to one side.
#13
not in terms of panning but every song on Iggy and the Stooges' 'Raw Power' distorts the speakers/headphones but it's supposed to they purposely overloaded the guitar sounds.

Oh and btw stfu noob it's called spacial distancing ook it up, it's how they mix music, and it's also a way of being creative, songs aren't finished as soon as you record them you know.

along these same lines, does anyone know of a program that can make songs play out of only one ear? the panning and separation or whatever is nice, but when im in class i can usually only have one headphone on and its annoying as hell when i can only hear half of the music.

The only reason i dont like it is when you are sharing earbuds with someone. One person always gets screwed on not being able to hear the guitar or vocals.

On some mp3s there may be a setting, I'm not 100% sure.

TS, listen to some trance music. It's a very important effect in alot of trance songs. It might be annoying, but it allows individual parts to have more clarity. When there is absolutely no panning, then it comes as a wall of sound.

Pretty much all beatles after magical mystery tour are seperated somehow, and its cool to listen to. Like on the white album, in yer blues, you can hear the original solo before one was overdubed on it...

It's annoying when you're trying to share earbuds, but other than that, I really like it when there's a lead guitar on one side, and then there's another guitar harmonizing with it on the other side.

Yeah, that is good.

Another song, well, kinda, Coffee Shop by Red Hot Chili Peppers. In one ear you get the vocals and if you take it out, you can hear the rest of the band going "na nanana na" to the song. It's pretty awesome

Harmonized solos FTW. As a keyboardist, they bring me orgasms. I love them, and I also love when in the start the rhythm is in one headphone only and sounds really thin, then - BOOM - crushing riff. But since I always fvck up one of my headphones, I miss a lot if I don't buy new ones.

Live Wire (AC/DC). I love the song, but it does grate a bit when you have to strain one ear just to hear the bassline.

Panning can be as much a part of the music as melody etc. Listen to some Aphex Twin for example, the panning alone can take you places

I like it, particularly with the pan on some of Hendrix's stuff. There probably should be a way to set your mp3 player to mono though (and play both channels through each earphone), in case you want to share earphones. That would be a good idea.

They credited us with the birth of that sort of heavy metal thing. Well, if that's the case, there should be an immediate abortion.
