Reminder to always check your mixes in mono! ⚠️
REAPER makes it very easy by having a handy mono button in your master track.
This is perfect for quickly going back and forth between mono and stereo at any time.
Not only that but you can right click on it and get options like L+R, L, R and even L-R which is your sides.
Not sure how to bring up the master track?
You can check your master track in two ways:
- Via the mixer: Press Ctrl/Cmd + M to bring up the mixer. The master track should be on the most left side. You can right click anywhere in an empty field and select Master Track for various position options.
- Via the track panel: Press Ctrl/Cmd + Alt/Opt + M to bring up the master track in your track panel. It should show up at the top left.
