Bias FX mono vs stereo, single vs dual

  • Hey everyone, I'm not sure if I'm missing something here. Using Bias FX Pro, and anytime I insert a modulation that, in the real world have a stereo output like a Chorus, before the input of the amplifier, it converts my signal to stereo. Some modulations I prefer to run in mono however to the input of the amp.

    It seems to me that any effect before the amp in the signal chain should be run in Mono into the amp, unless it's placed after the amp (a la 11 Rack). This happens in both single and dual modes. I can squeeze everything to mono by using the dual mode with the mixer, and panning center, but that seems a bit silly to me. Anyone else using mods in mono?

  • This is the only way I can get it to run Mono. I have to use the Dual mode, set the splitter to Channel 2, and pan the mixer output to Mono. It works, but it seems like it should work like this by default in Single mode.

  • This makes sense, as each module has no stereo mix. Except, how can it be stereo before the amp? Are you hearing a sweep from side to side?...or perhaps it's just doubled, so it sounds bigger?
