Cubase 8.5 stereo export is only Mono.

anyone else encounter this? I tried to export a Cubase 8 project in 8.5 and it came out with no stereo image, just strait mono in both channels.

Have you checked your export settings, vst connections etc?

Post a screenshot of the export window if you’re at all unsure.

Wow, for some reason “Mono Downmix” was checked by default in the Cubase 8.5.0 Audio Export window. Odd.
