stereo piano experiments

5 instances of Arturia Piano V2. Midi fed through chain effect and split into chosen synth depending on register. Panning set on each synth. Mp3 file normalised to -3dB.

This means that both the note ranges and the individual pans can be set to anything. I’ve been experimenting between different ranges to find where the effect adds interest (?) and where it sounds naff+

My question was whether this approach is a common approach amongst the experts here.

The view might be that it’s just not done (fine) and/or doesn’t sound good, but as @davide said in quoting Joe Meek, “judge by your ears” , which is what this experiment was about.

Note : You need to listen on headphones to hear the notes shift around in the stereo field !
