If you read my post from a while back about True Stereo Panning, then you know Logic’s panning can be pretty specific.
Besides being able to process mono and stereo tracks, did you know there’s a 3rd option?
Dual Mono processing.
You may have noticed when you open a plugin on a Stereo track that you have one of two options:
- Open a plugin as a Stereo plugin, or
- OPen a plugin as a Dual Mono plugin
But what the heck is Dual Mono anyways?
The name Dual Mono itself implies that you can affect 2 single channels. And those 2 channels are either:
- Left or Right
- Mid or Side
Still confused? Don’t be. It’s really simpler than you might think.
So in today’s video post, I’ll break down how great Dual Mono can be for your mixing.
Have a track where one side is louder than the other? Use Dual Mono to correct the imbalance.
Have a track that’s too brittle on only one side, but you don’t want to EQ both sides of the track? Dual Mono to the rescue.
Want to widen up a track using the Pitch Shifter, and don’t want to create multiple Aux channels? Once again, Dual Mono makes your Logic life way less complicated.
Logic has all the tools you need to knock out any troublesome scenarios. Sometimes the terminology is more intimidating than the reality of the function 🙂
