Panning in tones? (to the left or right of the stereo field/speaker)

Question

Is there some reason you can't pan tones in the toolkit? I'm pretty sure they let you do it in Tone Designer, though I'm not sure if it affects all tones or just the one you save it on.

 

Here's why I ask (skip to 0:40 if you're impatient, and listen for a sec):

 


 

If you listen to it with headphones, it tickles your brain and feels a bit creepy!

There's no real way to pan tones in RS, so that's why the Toolkit doesn't support it. The only way to get stereo imaging is by using a stereo rack effect like the Stereo Chorus. I use that a lot for spreading tones left and right to get it away from centre position and make it integrate more with the track, especially when the instrument is panned to the side.

The tone designer has a balance slider, so...?

 

Is there any way to pan hard left with the stereo chorus?

Question 1: What @@firekorn said.

Question 2: No, sadly. It is spread equally across both sides. But it sounds a lot better than without, imo, but just play around with it to see for yourself. Of course you gotta be careful with the actual chorus effect. Don't give it too much wet signal.
