I have been doing some mixing of a traditional type band setup guitar, bass, drums and vocals. I get the pan left to right center to give space to each instrument. But when I listen to professional music recordings I can hear that some instruments seem like they are at the back of the room and others nearer the front sometimes higher up like over your head.
How do you achieve this in the mix?
Is it all EQ? (something I don't have much experience of yet) or is there other things that can have this effect.
