This is just a note for people using FL.
To make your tracks sound better, turn off CPL. (You have to do this every time you start a new project though, it doesn't save on start-up)
To do this, simply go to Options > Project General Settings. In that tab, there should be a square that's lit up beside "Circular panning law". That's CPL, turn it off.
You can do some research on this, but I noticed that turning it off creates a more full mix.
I think this goes into the characteristics of stereo enhancement and ceiling levels of the sound. With a dome ceiling (CPL), stereo enhanced sounds have less body, since the levels are lowered as the sound roams out of center. Turning this off creates a flat ceiling, and an even level of sound in the whole stereo field. (Wow I think I did a good job explaining it there, came up with it as I went :P)
You'll notice a difference in quality/balance in the mix, and you will have to compensate for these changes by changing EQ/post levels and such. Overall I think you'll find this to give better results!
All the best,
