But as I said, in Reaper, it will render everything to either mono or stereo depending on what you specify. What plugin you add has nothing to do with it, you set it to render either mono or stereo and Reaper does that. You are using a "render to stereo" setting without knowing (if you are using Reaper).

again, a mono signal is a mono signal no matter what reaper renders it to.
What plugin you add has nothing to do with it, you set it to render either mono or stereo and Reaper does that.
i prefer to look at it a different way. repear has no idea what plugin i'm using or what its intended processing is supposed to yield. the fact that it gives you a "choice" is misleading and 9 times out of 10 will give you an undesired result. an autopanner is designed to be a stereo effect (as is any processor that effects the balance between channels). rendering a stereo effect (simply because one is given the choice to do so) to mono is counter-intuitive.
You are using a "render to stereo" setting without knowing (if you are using Reaper).
i don't use it (at least not often) so i can't speak to that.

All I was saying is that in Reaper, the rendered file will be in "mock stereo" (waveform will look like a stereo waveform) if stereo is selected. And it will render a single momo-looking waveform if mono is selected. This is all due to user selection, and no plugin will over-ride this. We actually agree here, and I think it's gotten convoluted and confusing... :D Anyway, way off-topic now....

Using this little off-topic:
How do you configure your Reaper when using the nebula panner? This way?

You don't configure it, since you're not using its panning anymore (you're using the plugin for that).

So yeah, the default which you selected there is fine.

I just purchased the Modern flagship eq and it's absolutely amazing!

What I'd really like to know is, was the way of sampling the eq the same that was used to sample the console?

If so it must be absolutely incredible sounding.

Can't believe how good this EQ sounds. Cannot wait for the dynamics section :D to make the console complete

When are the upgraded CLC gonna come? ;)

I bought 3 consoles a couple of months ago, the Modern Black Console, 1081 summing stuff (because I record most my stuff through a a 1081-inspired mic-pre, thought it could be a nice match) and a Classic Logic Console (from the knowledge that Nirvana - Nevermind and Metallica - Black Album was both mixed with it) and I played around with them for the first time today (been rather busy).

I exported a recorded drumkit that I've recorded. Then I inserted CLC-input on all channels, CLC-buss on the drumbus and CLC-master on the 2bus and exported again and compared the exported files for like 5 minutes.

Both sounded a bit different, the non-CLC-file sounded a little edge'ier (in a bad way) in the high-mids and the bassdrum sounded a little weak in the lows compared to the CLC-file. Sounds like the CLC lows is a bit thicker and tighter on the same time... thick but not boomy, very controlled bass..

I think I'm gonna use the CLC for modern Rock/Metal-stuff from now on. Thanks Alex! 8-)
