the idea of double tracking is to record two different versions of the track, then layer them over each other. sounds to me like you used the same track on both channels.
if you only have the one take and cant record another you could apply some effects to either one or both sides to create some subtle changes.
some very small pitch changes would be a great place to start

That's really useful, thanks. In fact I was just seeing if it worked before I tried to apply it. I've got quite a few vocal takes, so I'll try experimenting.

Re: Panning in Electronic Music

I personally use slight panning on drums to unclutter the mix, automation on pannings on some background elements like FX and pads, synths to create movement.

Feel that I should explore panning way more, looking forward for suggestions

Reading over that I realise I'm not very good at explaining things haha
Do you make all the spectrum of the baseline panned or just mid/highs?

Listened to an Audio engineer saying that <200,250 Hz should be in mono for club music

Re: Panning in Electronic Music

To pan or not to pan.

I try to pan everything (not bass so much tho, unless I want some really lobsided balance).
