Default What are the difference between using a "mono" vs "mono/stereo" plug in on mono track

Okay so I know if I have a mono track, I can obviously use a mono plug in on that same track.

When I insert the same plug in to that mono track in "mono/stereo" mode, then that mono track changes to 100 left and 100 right.

So basically, what does that mean in terms of sound difference between the two? I'm just curious.

That will mainly apply to effects like delays, reverbs, etc. It's the same thing as using an aux send on a mono track to a stereo aux track with a stereo plugin. It just allows you to use it as an insert instead.

For example, you can have your mono lead guitar going into a mono delay, or into a stereo delay, where the delays are wider and spread apart. You could achieve that with either method I just mentioned.

Oh okay that makes sense. I didn't know you could do the same thing with a mono/stereo plug in. I thought you just had to send mono tracks to a stereo aux to get the effect. Thanks!

It allows for stereo fx like reverb, stereo delay, chorus, etc. A stereo track always has the 2 pan pots for flexibility. You can overcame the volume shifts by adjusting the pan laws in the session window in the windows tab.
