Even when you "pseudo-monoize" an instrument with a plugin, it will still bounce to a stereo audio track. That stereo track will maintain the original gain stage but when you convert that stereo audio file back to MONO, than you lose your original gain stage causing an extra step of mixing in achieving the original gain stage. This would be so much easier with a MONO instrument track. It will also help with using external hardware. It will help save a few steps instead of having to print audio numerous times.
Please consider. Thank you
