    Alright this is frusterating. I just wanna pan my guitars left and right but they continue to come out both speakers. When they are actually centered they appear to be somewhat louder, then when i pan them they just sort of quiet down. i switched to direct sound and they come out of my computer speakers like that also. What gives?

    I would check in your device settings. options>preferences>devices. make sure it's assigned for two outputs. not mono. Or is it JUST the guitar?

    None of the tracks will pan, i have some programmed drums all on seperate tracks, none of them will pan either. i checked my device preferences there and i didnt see anything about assigning outputs.

    Are the tracks stereo or mono? Do they have a stereo output?

    the select value 1 for input and value 2 for output and then you can pan left and right. at least it worked for me
