With the support of iLok, more tips & tricks from the community. Here is one from myself!
Have you ever encountered when mixing, that one of your stereo files is off balance (i.e. the left level is hotter than the right)? A simple workaround to quickly fix this without using plug ins so the levels are now matching, is to rightclick on the stereo file, split it into mono, select the channel that is either too low or high, and CTRL+ Shift + scroll up or down to adjust the gain level to match. Then, simply drag the two mono files back to the original stereo track and re-combine it to a now even stereo file.
You can now delete the monos, and none of your mixing workflow has been affected.
Remember, panning is a gain adjusting procedure, so all you need to do is match the volumes.
