If I use “audio mixdown”, and select a single mono track from the list on the left, when I export, the resulting file is stereo. I would prefer mono though. If I select “mono mixdown” during export, the file is mono, but the volume is 2x louder. Is there a better way to render mono files so I can get a mono file output that is not louder?
I have been creating a temporary unused mono output buss, and just before rendering, I route the mono track to the mono buss… Then when I render, it does indeed result in a mono file that is the correct volume, but this is just more button clicking… I’m hoping there may be a better way?
