Looking to monitor your mix in mono?
Throw one of these vst plugins on your master bus.
These VSTs will convert stereo to mono and more besides.
DFX – Monomaker
Monomaker is a simple mono-merging and stereo-recentering utility. You can use it to progressively mix down a stereo signal to mono and you can use it for equal power, center-shifting pans.

BetaBugs – Moneo
Moneo - is a stereo plug-in which treats each channel as a separate monaural source. Each channel may then have its volume attenuated, its position in the stereo field panned, and its sonic character altered with a resonant lowor high-pass filter if you so choose. Moneo is equally comfortable with basic functionality (forcing mono) or inventive destruction of a source’s original spatial and spectral identity!

Kelly Industries – Stereo Tools VST Plug-in
The Stereo Tools VST Plug-in is a simple to use utility plug-in that allows you to pan or position both the left and right channels independently of one another. This is a 2 input and 2 output plug-in. It works well for stereo files that you don’t want to have to convert to mono or if you want to fix a problem with the stereo file. For instance with the Stereo Tools plug-in you can MUTE one side of the file and then pan or position the other side to the center. You can then pan this file using the Nuendo or Cubase panner. You can also use the plug-in to remove the center information (voice remover), as well as sum both the left and right channels together. You can also work with files in the Mid/Side format.

As a reader of the always excellent ‘Computer Music Magazine’ Martin Eastwood was brought to my attention because of the excellent ‘CompressiveCM’ exclusive only to Computer Music Magazine free vst plugin.
‘CompressiveCM features an RMS compressor with both internal and external sidechains, as well as parallel compression, brickwall limiting and vintage valve emulation to add analogue warmth to your mix.
Both sidechains also feature a three-band EQ and mid/side processing with monitoring to allow you to accurately dial in the exact sounds you want the compressor to respond to. This allows you to set up light sound shaping, devastating ducking effects or even de-ess vocal tracks.’
‘CompressiveCM is available for both Windows and Mac VST exclusively with Computer Music Magazine’
This plugin is worth the price of the magazine alone, ands you have the added bonus of a bloody good read to boot. Not to mention all the other plugins available on the companion DVD.
Alternatively there is the,
‘Compressive is made up of two free audio compressors based on the DSP algorithms used in CompressiveCM
Compressive Pro is an external side chain vintage analogue modeled RMS compressor. The external side contains a 3-band EQ and mid/side controls to allow complete control of audio dynamics.
Compressive Lite uses the same algorithms as Compressive Pro but has a reduced feature for minimum CPU usage so is ideal for use as a tracking compressor.’
