What is perhaps not as obvious is that you can pan or place individual tracks
separately. The way you described panning a single track is exactly how it
works and fits right in with Rich's description, but you could place one track
such as a vocal in the middle of a stereo sound stage and allow the
instrumentation to still occupy the left and the right portions of the sound

losing my marbles!!!!
Panning to -1 or negative one moves the track all the way to the left.??
Panning to 1 or positive 1, moves it all the way to the right.?? Zero is
the center.?? You can move in one-tenth increments from zero to negative
one by using -.1, -.2, -.3 and so on, or from zero to 1 with .1, .2, .3,
and so on.

Please could one of you explain the panning process to me, using NVDA
and Audacity. When I do it, it only moves my track from one side to
the other, but not in a sterio kind of way. I have checked on the net,
but they are talking about Envelope tool and things, which has me
baffled. Is their a way I can do this using my keyboard, pretty
please? I have devoured a box of chocolates and is now on a sugar high
dued to stress, lol!
Thanks so much for your help,
