How to group sliders without losing individual pan/fx control

I’m trying to understand how to group tracks together as a group without losing the ability to pan and manage FX individually (per track). My tracks are mono (vocals or guitar), and once I put them in a group the individual panning goes away. I like to (for example) get the balance right on all my backup vocal tracks (which are often panned) and then adjust their volume globally with one slider as needed in the mix (but retain the ability to pan or have individual FX).

Sounds like you are routing your mono tracks to a mono group track, use a stereo group instead.
