Stereo to mono sources

Post by TKS »

When I use a stereo input as main source (for listening) and also want to completely visualize this input I have to additionally provide a mono-downmix to get the signals from both channel together which makes the project bigger.

It would be nice to have a checkbox to be able to have a mono-downmix of the 2 channels as source without the need of an additional file.

You can always combine audio channels using globals and expressions. I demo this in this tut.

I'm not sure you really mono'd it here. You just added Volume parameter of left and right channels to one another, I don't think it's actually a mono signal that actually gets analyzed.

Yes, you're right. It won't work for several parts of Magic (iterator frequencies, audio to image etc) but, in the absence of an actual mono-source, adding (or averaging) reactivity from multiple channels would give a similar effect in many cases.
