Greetings! Currently using Studio One 3 Professional. My problem to be specific is that whenever I bounce or export my song (Both in the regular and mastering/project view), Any plugins or edits (Excluding EQ, Automations, Modulatios and individual compression) I put do not register. To test this I even did an extreme brickwall to test if my ears were just deceiving me. I compared the initial unmastered mix (Both in MP3 and WAV)  to the *Brickwalled* mastered mix (Also in MP3 and WAV), THERE WERE NO CHANGES AT ALL! Strangely whenever I mute any tracks or simply raise the faders (Master and individuals), The changes were registered whenever I bounced.

I also have another problem where in my mix always bounces as Mono, even when my master fader was set to Stereo. Although in nature all my individual tracks were recorded as mono although I did pan them and the master was set to stereo.

Is this because I am currently using an older version? I will give details about my current version later but I am very sure that I did not update to the latest version.

Any help will be appreciated!

Make sure when you are exporting or sending to Project, use "Real time Processing". Some plug-ins require Realtime Processing.

In Song > Export Mixdown options: 

And for sending songs to Project mastering:
