    Lets use track 31/32. I can be either set to record at mono or stereo. If I have it set as stereo... then send thru fx one out... will it only use the left or right side of the track 31/32 or does it treat it like a mono track?

    Thanks

    It treats it like a mono track. The sends (1 & 2) "sum" the stereo tracks together before they leave the Send out jacks.

    In order to send a stereo set of tracks out (in stereo) - to a stereo external effects processor - or to just simply send stereo tracks in stereo back to 2 individual inputs for whatever reason.... you need to export the stereo tracks (ie: 31/32) to the Audio Depot folder and then import them to any two available mono tracks (ie: 7, 8).

    Then you send each mono track to a send of it's own:

    Track 7 to Send 1
    Track 8 to Send 2

    To some - this may seem like a hassle - but it's a solid workaround that simply takes a little time. Well worth it if that's the result you're needing.
