I have a simple question about mono-to-stereo effects.
If I have a mono track–say a vocal–can I apply stereo effects to that track and get a stereo result? For example, let’s say I want to add a stereo vocal doubler or Steinberg’s built in Mono-to-Stereo effect to create some stereo spread on the track?
Here are a few more targeted questions:
- What happens when I put a stereo insert effect on the 1-6 inserts of a mono track? Is the result mono?
- If the answer to #1 is no, what happens when I put a stereo insert effect on the post-fader 7-8 slots of a mono track? Since that comes after the fader and panner, would THAT make it stereo?
- If the answer to #2 i also no, I guess my next option would be to create an FX track and route the vocal to that. However, I would need to send it pre-fader and turn the track fader completely down if I want 100% of the signal effected.
Thanks in advance!
