I’ve recorded mono vocals on a mono track, but now I want to add stereo insert effects and I’m stuck. I believe any insert I add to a mono audio track will remain in mono, so if I were to add for the ease of hearing it and “autopan” effect as an insert on a mono track, nothing will happen. However if I create a new stereo track, drag the mono audio file to it, and then add the autopan effect I can clearly hear it.
Now here is the rub. On my audio track I have recorded multiple takes, and once I comp together my favorite performance I add a new TrackVersion with just this performance on it. So all my mono tracks have at least 2 track versions; v1 = all my recorded takes (incase I need to switch out a take later) , and v2 = my comp as a single audio file.
So work flow wise, what is the easiest method of transfering my mono vocals into stereo tracks? Right now I’m adding new stereo tracks and then manually going to the mono track, choosing trackversion 1, and copying and pasting, then switch to v2 on the stereo track, going back to the mono track, choosing trackversion 2, going back to the stereo and pasting, etc. I wish Cubase had that Logic functionality where each plugin had the ability to go from mono -> stereo.
any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
