Organizing ReWire Channels in Mixer

So I’m trying to gain some control over my project. When I use ReWire with Reason, two individual mono tracks are created, making the whole mixing process unwieldy.

Wondering what the right process is for tightening things up. From what I’ve gathered…

  1. Link the channels
  2. Pan the odd channel left/even right
  3. Add channels to group

Is it even necessary to link the ReWire channels? Am I missing anything?
