Great article, Craig. I tried the Channel Tools in Sonar for the first time after reading your comments about it, and narrowing the stereo image did the trick as far as making some synth horns sit in the mix in a song I'm working on. In an effort to make synth presets and patches sound impressive on first listen, lots of programmers intentionally spread the stereo field and introduce stereo motion to liven up the sound. Which is great until it messes up a mix with other instruments.
