How to collapse USB output to mono?

usb mono output

Best Answer phil_m , 23 July 2017 - 07:24 PM

If you put a dummy mono block, such as a Gain block before the output block, the output would be dual mono, so if you wanted to only use USB 1, you'd have everything mono-ized.

You could also easily just combine USB 1/2 in your DAW to one mono signal. In Reaper there's a option to downix stereo tracks to a signal mono track. Go to the full post

Hello,

 

I have a stereo signal path that I would like to collapse to mono. When I use the 1/4 output, the signal gets collapsed automatically. However, I want the output to be set to USB and the only option I have is to make output stereo - USB 1/2, USB 3/4 etc. How can I select the output to be just USB 1, and send a collapsed mono signal through it?
