SONAR lets you assign audio track and bus outputs to individual (mono) hardware outputs in addition to stereo pairs.This is very useful, for example, if you record in SONAR but want to use an external mixing console to mix.
1. Go to Edit > Preferences > Audio - Devices.
2. Select the Show Mono Outputs check box and click OK.Mono hardware outputs are now available in all locations that display audio output ports, with the exception of the Media Browser view, Loop Construction view and Import Audio dialog box. Each available audio port exposes Left, Right and Stereo channels.
Note: The Show Mono Outputs option only affects the display of mono hardware outputs in SONAR; it does not affect current output port assignments on tracks and buses. Existing mono output assignments are retained even if you disable the Show Mono Outputs option.When a stereo track is assigned to a mono hardware output, the left and right channels are downmixed to mono. All track/bus gain and pan settings are applied prior to mono conversion.Loading a SONAR X2 project with mono output assignments in an earlier version SONAR will cause the mono assignments to be lost.
