Option to use mono plugins on stereo signal

e.g. right clicking on a plugin "make stereo" would divide the stereo signal to two instances of the plugin (both with same settings)

it already forces them to be stereo doesn't it? if you add a mono plugin it should produce the same signal on both its outputs. did you find any instance of this not being the case?

that's always the case yes! I was thinking about an extra option that left and right channel would be processed by a two separate instances of that mono plugin, so that the output signal remains in stereo and wouldn't be summed somewhere.

what is the point of doing that? wont you get the same result as you get now?

~mylofy 3 months ago

the point is to preserve the mid-side information, which is lost in the summing. perhaps the screencasts explain it better what I mean:

oh i see, zrythm only passes the left channel to a mono plugin I think. it should create 2 instances by default you are right

this requires breaking the project format... need to write an upgrader too

pushed to master, pls test

Tested on Zrythm 1.0.0-beta.1.1.11-26-g65d6349ac

Signal on the right seems to be missing:

interesting... seems like I missed the case when it's not an instrument track. I'll write a test to catch this
