What is in stereo should stay stereo - I agree completely! That's why I'm recommending that you think of stereo as two mono tracks. That way you won't accidentally run a mono effect on a stereo track and consolidate left and right to a single mono stream.houseofmidi wrote: I disagree. what is the point of this? I think its better to keep things as stereo if they are stereo. it makes editing easier.
I'm not advocating separating anything into two mono tracks. But many (perhaps even most) sources are mono. You can take a look at your samples to verify this, particularly drum samples.houseofmidi wrote:There is no point separating everything to two mono tracks
If you have mono samples, or a synth with mono out, why run any of that on a stereo track? There is no point duplicating mono data in order to make stereo and asking your CPU to push the same data around twice.
