VTSi in Mono question for Cubase?

Lets say you load up a VSTi and its stereo by default. IF I wanted to run the plugin in MONO is this possible to do with those VSTi’s? Im using Addictive Keys and Im trying to figure out how I can make the signal mono so as to do a take, pan L, do another instance of it, do a take and pan R just like if you where using a Hardware synth and double tracking a part.

I found kind of a workaround. In the File/Export/Audio Mixdown you can Mono it on that page, BUT Im guessing its Dual Mono summing that stereo signal which isnt what Im really after
