I'm hoping it's dual-mono, as I would like to compress the left and right channels independently. If not, any recommendations for ITB dual-mono mastering compressors?
Don't quote me on it, but IIRC Violet is stereo. At least in Reaper, there is a '2 in / 2 out' button (maybe a 4 instead of a 2) in the top right portion of the plugin window that allows you to only process one side of audio, instead of both. If your are using Reaper, it should be a matter of loading 2 Violets, clicking the in/out buttons, and setting each Violet to contrasting sides.
Like I said though, I may be completely wrong on Violet being stereo. Anyway, that's how you can force dual mono operation with a stereo compressor in Reaper. Hopefully that helps someone reading this
