Pan 100% Left or Right
BACKGROUND: For live performances I would like to have a pre-recorded loop on one of loopy's channels but set up so that only I can hear it while I play (ie a "private loop"). I thought this would be pretty easy to achieve by: (i) recording a loop; (ii) panning hard right on that loop (iii) saving. In my live setup, the left channel goes to my amp, the right channel goes to my right headphone cup. When I bring up the pre-saved loopy session for the song the pre-recorded "private loop" plays in my ear and the amp is silent. I can then use the rest of the loop channels in loopy as per normal.
PROBLEM: No matter how I record the "private loop", when I pan full right, there is a very small amount of the loop's sound coming out of the left channel. Ie panning right 100% doesn't seem to completely mute the left. Since my amp is cranked up with lots of gain, it means my 'private loop' can be heard by the audience (albeit at a lot lower volume than when I start playing).
CHECK: To check the iphone hardware isn't the culprit, I recorded a track with a different app (DAW) on the right channel only. When I play it back, no matter how loud, there is no leakage to the left channel. This says to me that the hardware is capable of full separation of left and right.
Conclusion: Loopy panning isn't working as it should. 100% pan left leaves a little bit of 'right' still leaking. Or, have I missed something?
