I have two questions!
1.) Whenever you write a song, do you ever want to use surround? I tried using it before, and its about the same as the normal panning.
You'll only hear the difference if you have Surround Sound speakers. Without them, it's converting surround sound back into stereo. Making a song in Surround Sound is probably only useful if it's a film sound-track or otherwise intended for use on TV or other media
2.) How can i get certain instruments, to pan at different points, during the song?
Use automation - press the A button to open automation tracks, select Pan from the menu to the left just under the picture and name of the instrument, and automate as usual. moving the line up brings the pan to the left and moving it left brings the pan to the right.
