Please see and hear the attached files. I'm recording a guitar direct. The guitar channel is panned full right, so I expect to see/hear nothing happening on the left channel (the left channel has a backing track that comes in after the solo) But during the solo, what is the audio being heard? Does it have anything to do with the ZED's built in Reverb I'm using on the guitar? If so, how do I stop this from happening? Thank you in advance for any help, it's driving me crazy...

If this is just how the mixer works, I suppose I need to get a stand alone Reverb pedal. But it doesn't seem like I should hear anything guitar related on the left channel unless I have something configured wrong, but I can't imagine what.....

I can't get your tracks to play, but I probably don't need to.

This excerpt is from p23 of the Zed10FX manual:
There are 16 different effects presets in the ZED Effects Processor. Each is fed with a mono signal from the FX bus, and the output from the effects processor is in stereo.
This means that the stereo effects are going to be routed to the L and R outputs, independent of any panning of the source (dry) channel.

If you wamt a mono effect, the simplest thing is to use an external effect device such as the pedal you suggest. Alternatively, you could do it all on the mixer by setting the Effects Level to zero and bringing up the FX to Aux control. This would send a mono version of the effect out of the Aux output jack, and you could jumper this round to the line input of either input channel 1 or 2, whichever is spare. Use a TS jack lead (e.g. guitar cable) for this task, not a TRS lead. Set the channel to have the same panning as the channel carrying your guitar signal and you have achieved what you want.

Ah missed that, so I guess that's what I'm hearing. Not sure why you can't get them to play, they're just regular MP3 files, but it's ok. What you said quoting from the manual makes sense.
I'm using the AUX out for something so I wouldn't be able to do what you were suggesting, so I'll just obtain a Reverb pedal and go that route.
