I am trying to make a small box to take the mono audio output form my analog synth and run it through a panning knob so I can control where in the stereo mix the mono signal is placed. The goal is to be able to easily change the L/R pan of the synth in the output during performance. I am aware of Pan Pot circuits like this one but that seems above my current electronics ability right now.
Would it be possible to instead do something much more simple like getting a dual gang pot like this one, wire the mono signal to both sets of leads so that the one channel increases as the other one decreases? Or would this cause the center position to have less volume than the full right or left position?
In short, is building a full Pan Pot circuit my only option or is there something more simple I can do instead?
