Default A question about mono/stereo plug ins on mono tracks.

Im still new to recording, so if im asking a simple question, please bare with me. I want to use some eq plug ins on my drum track for my toms, which are in mono. The problem is, either the plug ins themselves are only in mono/stereo, or only show up in stereo. Since i have my toms panned about %50 to the left before i record them, im wondering if i should use the mono/stereo plug ins, or the stereo ones. My worry is that if i use the stereo, the track then will turn into stereo and then the faders are hard left and right. If i do that, will the sound be in the same area panned %50 left, or do i have to use the 2 pan sliders from the now stereo track, after i put a stereo plug in on a mono track?

Use mono plugins. Panning will stay as is.

Default Re: A question about mono/stereo plug ins on mono tracks.

What plugins do you have that are only available in mono to stereo, or just stereo? Especially EQ plugins. I'm not aware of any that are not also available in just mono.

Can you provide more detail about what you're trying to do, and what plugins you're using?
