Wide guitars with mono compatibility
From Fractal Audio Systems Wiki
This section is only relevant for recording - it is irrelevant for playing live.
If you normally add a stereo chorus to a dry signal, you have three guitars in the mix: One (dry) in the middle, two on right and left. Sometimes you just want to pan a guitar to left and right without endangering mono-compatibility, and without a middle guitar, so you don't occupy the space where the voice is.
This is how you do it:
- Split the signal, one goes into a shunt, one into the chorus.
- Set the chorus to 100% wet.
- Combine both signals with a mixer.
- In the mixer, pan the dry signal to the left, the chorus to the right.
- Adjust the rate and the depth of the chorus to taste.
