Using Multiple-Mono Plugins
 
There's so many ways to do stuff in the digital mixing realm, its hard to keep it all straight. I came across a video showing how to use multiple-mono plugins in PT on stereo tracks to apply different EQ to left/right channels, and even mid-side. Just for fun I tried it out on a stereo VI track that had definite left/right bouncing and differences, and it can change the sound dramatically. So, it got me wondering, how often do you guys go for using multiple-mono plugins, and how do you employ it when you use it? Is it something you do on almost every mix, or only once in a while? Just curious how you pros use this technique? Thanks

If I need to process one side differently than the other (rarely), I just copy it over to 2 mono tracks and tweak each separately as needed. Easier/faster. My 2 cents!!!

I use most of my parallel chains in multi mono, that way they preserve the stereo image of the tracks sent to them (as long as you keep the pan in the send linked to the track). For reverbs and delays you can use the pan pot on the send to separate the effect from the original signal, for example pan the track to the left and the send to the right but if I want my reverbs to expand the space around the track, for example on lead tracks, I use stereo. My template has both versions inactive on all the auxiliaries, then I just activate stereo o dual mono as I need.

Thanks for the insights on this. I can see some potential ways to use this, but I don't see using it on a regular basis for the type of thing I do.

It grows on you, just knowing it's there and how it works will save your bacon when dealing with busy mixes and large track counts
