stooped mono gear idea

I know this won't work because of phase issues but…what if you had a mono compressor, or mic-pre and you wanted to run a mix through it. Could you run one side then the other and combine them as a stereo pair? I see no reason why this would work but I thought I would ask…..heh

I did this with drumloops and my single (and lonely) Distressor. Worked perfect. I don't know, wether I would do it with a full mix...
Try it and when you like, keep it heh

you have be careful when doing this cos it's possible to get shifts in the stereo field when one channel is attenuated by the compressor and the other channel isn't.

Sum L+R to the key input, then record your two passes.

Sometimes unlinked L/R channels can sound better on the 2-buss.......all forms of tape saturation are unlinked for example.

Tape compression is way more subtle then 2:1 or a higher ratio.

This is like the differance between practice and theory. In theory practice always works. In practice, theory never works.

Carry on.

it's not stoopid...i'd work fine....you just need to put an impulse at the beginning so you could get L/R in sync again.....also, your setup would have to be properly clocked as dropping even one sample will make it sound ****ed in mono (radio)
