also i think that a stereo file even with enabled panner should be at no
less volume than with disabled panner.. I am aware of the fact that the
volume change is done to compensate the volume raise which happens when
panning [on one channel], probably to avoid clipping. But this behaviour
is highly irritating and should be optional from my point of view (maybe
add an option: "lower track volume by 6db when panning enabled ")..
If you think that this behaviour is desirable, enable it by default. I
would turn it off usually and adjust the level manually if needed [when
busting the headroom]..
