Topic: Stereo input setting - Routing question
When I mic an acoustic, I use two mic mono channels that I pan. But when bringing in a vocal that I want to apply a stereo effects to, I'm not sure if I should set the input track in TotalMix of my interface to stereo or mono? To better clarify my question:
It seems like mono inputs in Logic Pro get sent to the outputs as stereo. But are they hitting the effects as mono inline of the channel? In other words, it doesn't seem like a great idea to send a mono signal to an effect - Unless the effect in the channel strip is summing the signal before processing.
