How to get my PT LE mix to mono?

Is there a way to hear my mix in mono using PT LE?

The 002 and 003 have a mono button on the front of them.

I have an mbox2 pro.... no mono button. I am wondering lately if I should just buy the 002 or a 003. The pre amp/ converters are the same crap as the mbox2 pro... but more I/Os. The mbox2pro has ext clocking I/O good to 48khz. what to do!!?

The 003 will have more I/O plus ADAT so you could bypass the analog stages using ADAT something or other, don't get the 002 cause it doesn't have wordclock. Supposedly they improved on the I/o of the 003, how much, can't say.

But if you don't need the extra I/O, just route as told above to listen to your stuff in mono should you want to.

doesn't the mono button on the 002 and 003 just playback mono, and have nothing at all to do with the actual file bounce?

You can download a vst called mono maker here:
Destroy FX Extras [handies & stupids]


Then you can run it with the vst to rtas wrapper from fxpansion.
Slap it on your master fader and you're good to go.
It works for me.

to correct a mixes phase issues etc, isn't the mono button on the 003 good enough? Is recording to mono totally necessary?

BTW can someone tell if the 003 is better than my mbox2pro ( other than the fact of more I/O's) ? Is there better pres or DA or AD than the Mbox2pro?????
