Thanks for the reply, Martin. I created a test project and dropped a test tone in, set up the aux and… it was bang on. Damn! Project specific then but no: doing the same thing in my current project gave the same result.
Next I tried with an existing mono guitar track and now it gets interesting: in spite of creating a mono fx channel to match, that fx channel meter looks stereo - and it’s 3dB down.
So I created a stereo track and dropped a stereo file on it, sent it to a new stereo fx channel and guess what? Bang on!
This screen shot shows what I’m seeing:
is a mono track in a mono channel, sending to mono test2
. Note the stereo appearance of the meter. 3dB down
is a stereo track in a mono channel, sending to mono
. Again, the ‘stereo’ meter (which you might expect this time). 3dB down again
. However, DGtr
is panned left and when I pan it centre mono
matches it. DI Strum
doesn’t have this excuse, though…
is the DGtr
track in a stereo channel, sending to stereo
. Bang on.
So where are we? Stereo Pan Law is set to Equal Power but how can that be affecting the mono example (DI Strum)?
Can’t quite make it out. Over to you, buddy…
