How to use this plugin
- Insert mono as the last plugin on your stereo mix bus.
- We recommend to leave it open on a second screen along with other metering plugins during the mixing or mastering session.
- Check your mix in mono on a regular basis, especially after crucial balancing, panning or spreading decisions.
Mono has three exclusive buttons allowing you to choose one of the following states with one click:
No processing: the audio signal is not touched.
Left true mono
The audio is gain adjusted by -6dB, converted to mono and sent to the left channel. The right channel is muted.
Phantom mono (center, both speakers)
The audio is gain adjusted by -6dB and converted to mono. The signal is sent to both channels.
This is the classic phantom mono with all its negative side effects.
Right true mono
The audio is gain adjusted by -6dB, converted to mono and sent to the right channel. The left channel is muted.
