Just curious...
It sounds great for playing/performing but do you mix in mono when recording songs?

I nearly always record guitars in mono, but reverb and delays are stereo (I use verbs/fx outside of S-Gear).

Do you set S Gear to mono or do you just centre the panning in the pro convolver?

for jamming normally stereo but for recording mono, often double tracking rhythm parts and partially panning them L/R.

I use a mono instance of the plugin.

It all depends on the sound I'm after. A lot of records use a single microphone in front of the guitarists amp, and that includes any pedals. So, mono is often good enough (even when using S-Gear fx).

If the guitar part demands a stereo "space" I'l S-Gear in stereo, and I find the stereo S-Gear effects are quite good and will sometimes use those. Other times I will rely on using a bus from the mono guitar "amped" track, and adding other third-party stereo effects (e.g. doubler, reverb, delay, etc) on the bus.

after a lot of searching/reading posts - I'm confused. What I am trying to do is simple... I normally track guitars in Mono in Reaper. the DAW is set to record the output of the S-Gear plugin in channel 1. cool. When I switch the channel to record in stereo from-S-Gear (i have a nice ping pong delay effect) I don't get any signal on channel 2. Reaper is set up in Stereo in the bottom right.

I think it is something with how the focusrite 2i4 is not allowing stereo audio from S-gear into the DAW. should be simple?

thanks

I Put S-Gear as an input fx.Then right click record button.In the drop down click Record Output Stereo. I am using Focusrite 6i6 with guitar to input 1.
