On the one hand I monitor my stereo audio signal through my speakers. They are connected to the main outputs of the Quantum. The buttons DIM/Mute and MONO work fine (Quantum or UC Surface or in Studio One). The other way I monitor my stereo audio signal through my headphones and there is no change in loudness (DIM/MUTE button) or no mono signal (MONO button), when I use these buttons. The signal for headphones is set to Main Out which is equivalent to the main outputs of the Quantum. In Studio One there is a new control right from the master fader. There you can change these buttons, too. But no effect. The TALK button works fine in both situations.

I often work with headphones and want to mix also in mono. Ok, I could do that in the master fader of S1, too. But I think it would be nice to get it from the Quantum Mono button. It's more noticeable than in S1. Dim/Mute isn't so important for me but it's a nice to have, too. Can we get this feature, please?

I don't understand why somebody gives this request a minus vote. I only want to have an additional feature. For recording the possibilities with different signalflow in monitors and headphones should remain as it is. But for mixing situations my feature request is much better than it currently is.
