Here is another free plug in El  :o  Let me know what you think of these when you start playing with them.  I have both, but sometimes I just manually move one track by hand to what ever amount of delay I want.

Thanks but to be honest I won be doing much experimentation for now because I don't have the need to do a bunch of post production on my playing around... But you never know :)

@Peter,what panning do you usually use for guitar? Hard L & R or more more moderate?

As a rule of thumb 60-80% L/R on intro's and bridges. As soon as vocals or a solo hits they go hard left and right.
But it really varies.
I might also do quadruple takes (like you do) and use 1 amp (setting) for hard L+R, and 1 amp (setting) for 60% L+R

Thanks,interesting need to try some things you do.

I know but it's good stuff to know about and will give things added dimension.

I hear a lot of panning like this on many albums I have.  You need to use it right though as vocals and guitar will class if too close and other things like snare and any other mid range elements.

I would like to experiment with the guitar 70% one side 30% the opposite and bass 70% one side (opposite of the guitar 70%) and 30% the opposite.

Quite a number of Venom records are like this.  I heard Van Halen 1 was like this as well, but I've never checked it out.  It's only a one guitar band type panning situation from the records I have heard.

(I would like to experiment with the guitar 70% one side 30% the opposite and bass 70% one side (opposite of the guitar 70%) and 30% the opposite). This is a good approach to try, I used to mix live stuff panned this way, the 30% being on the same side as the source
