(pot)

  1. In a mono signal, a control that adjusts the amount the signal goes to the right or left channels of a stereo output (or selected odd/even number subgroups on a mixer). To pan a signal hard left (all of the way to the left) is to send the signal only to the left channel, panning it hard right sends it to the right channel only. If the control is left in the center position, the signal is sent equally to both the left and right channels.
  2. Panoramic potentiometer; the component, circuit, or control that allows a signal to be panned.
  3. A balance control.
