GLOSSARY ENTRY (DERIVED FROM QUESTION BELOW)
English term or phrase:
pan knob [control potentiometer on audio mixing desk]
Explanation: "You have probably noticed on your mixer there is a "pan" control on nearly every channel... Pan is short for "pan pot". And Pan Pot is short for Panoramic Potentiometer. (A potentiometer, by the way, is a fancy word for "knob".)"
"Le potentiomètre permet d'orienter le signal d'une voie vers la gauche ou la droite d'un mix stéréo."
