The majority of music I want to record is based around acoustic blues/rock guitar. While my approach to tracking and mixing is sure to change over time as I learn more, I have already developed certain technical preferences. I know I like to use just one well placed mic, and double track the guitar parts, panning left and right somewhat. But one thing about my preferences has me wondering. While adding effects to the recorded tracks, I like to hear one track solo, and through one monitor, usually the right, just because it is easier to shift position in front of with my overall set up. Does this preference for hearing the solo tracks through one speaker for adding compression/reverb/EQ sound normal. I do go back and tweak once I hear the tracks in context of the mix, but I find I can get the punch and presence more easily with a single monitor. It just presents itself differently than hearing the solo track equally through two monitors.
