  • Multi Output instrument with Mono Channels

    I am trying to figure out how to route the mono channels from BFD3. It seems that no matter where I send it to it comes out as a stereo pair!? I want to track the individual mic's from BFD3 in to my DAW but VEP seems to only be able to handle stereo pairs. Am I missing something here?


  • There is no mono channel in VEP,, A OLD (very old) request.......

    I ran into the same problem using Addictive Drums. I will try to explain the work around I am using to split the channels. the end result is outputs for mono instruments that are essentially dual mono on the stereo channels in VEP

    Here Goes:

    Example: the kick and snare are on the same stereo channel coming out of AD2 into VEP mixer channel

    I basically make two copies of that input, and then use the matrix mixer plugin (now included in VEP7) to grab the kick only channel and make it dual mono into it's own stereo track. You still end up with stereo tracks back into your DAW, but at least it is isolated to just the kick...etc.

    What i like about this setup; I can have multiple drum kits setup in my instance, process them individually, and then merge them to BUS channels before going back to my DAW. So no matter what Kick I want, they all come back on the same bus channels to by DAW. That way I can group things like TOMS's into a stereo pair before they ever go back to my DAW. I can also mix it all up and just send a stereo pair back to my DAW. But, I like to be ablet to still tweak in the mix, so I dont do that very often.

    Hopefully this helps a little.
