Automatically sum to mono

I think this should not take so much time, since the ability to sum to mono is already built inside the qc.
At the moment we have to change to mono output preset by preset.
What we need is simply the ability to set the outputs to mono/stereo globally, either by automatically sensing the presence of a single cable, by manually setting a switch or both.

Anyone know if this has been addressed in any way?

Yes I know, no it hasn’t

Also new to QC here, so forgive me if any of this has been covered elsewhere.

So it seems that for the time being, and still, the only workaround is to have different presets created for different live scenarios? I.e. Scenario 1: you can send two cables out to FOH, put a mono block at the end of the chain, and use Multi-Out – and Scenario 2: you can only run one cable to FOH, in which case you have to specify a single output, L or R?

This applies to recording into a DAW as well, eh? In which case you would need a 3rd preset where the signal is only being routed into Multi-Out? I am primarily interested in tracking mono guitars, as I will generally double-track, pan hard L and R, which I assume a lot of us do.

I know these questions maybe delve into multiple topics. Thanks in advance for clarification.

And to be clear, the Mono block being referenced is the Single (M) block in the IR Loader section, correct?

my qc no longer detects connections on xlr outputs 1 and 2…please, could someone check if he has the same problem?

Just checking in on this; is this only an issue for people who are running say pingpong delays?

Or are people who split theiir signal out to two seprate IRs/cabs having issues? (I thought if you ate using 2 lines, but if you select say output 1/2 it does sum to mono?)

Apologies in advance for my ignorance - for recordng i’ve been using a single CAB/IR block and using one output in to my focusright sound module (am I missing out on anything by doing this?)

Lots of effects have stereo spread of one kind or another. Chorus, rotary sim, reverb…

Sounds like if I’m recording a tune with some heavy delay etc (which i will be soon), i should be recording in stereo using 2 outputs; thanks for the heads up :+1:t2:
