print mono track comes out stereo

I just want to print a mono gtr track. When I “export audio file” I have to check “mono downmix” to get a mono file. If I don’t check the box, I get a stereo print. Is that normal? Seems like if it’s a mono track to start with, it would print a mono (vs. stereo) track by “default”.

It’s normal. Most likely you have the mono track output set to the main stereo out.

And that is correct on set to the main stereo out. Thanks for the reply.

Sure enough if I set the output bus to none, I get a mono file by “default”. Can’t believe I didn’t think of that :slight_smile:
