    Hey Brad, and all! I know this is a dumb question, but not too long ago a mono version of a stereo mix seemed to contain most all the information. Today there is a noticeable difference in the content when combined mono. Is there a line you won't cross when it comes to spatial enhancement, and what content do you try to preserve in the mono mix? :)

    I've noticed that if I hard pan the guitars, they get quieter when I hit the mono button on my d8b. yet, if I pan hard panned instruments, like the guitars, to 3 and 9, then use the width adjustment on my Dbx Quantum to widen the image out to the hard panned position, the guitars don't loose any volume when mono'd. Will there be phase problems doing this or is it a better way of getting a wide mix?
