  • Only left channel of sample playing from mono output

    I have a pad set up with it's Output parameter set to Out 3 so that I can send to a mono fx module.
    However If the sample assigned to the pad is stereo, only the left channel is sent to Out 3.
    I expected the bitbox to down mix stereo samples to mono if sent to mono outs.

    Any advice on whether this a bug, a limitation of the bitbox or something I'm doing wrong gratefully received

    It sounds like bad practice to me. Why would you expect it to mix stereo samples into mono when sent out a mono output?

      It would make my workflow more efficient and reliable Let's say I want all eight pads to have their own separate outputs - i.e. Pad 1 to to Out 1 etc - if any pad had a stereo sample assigned to it, only the left channel would be heard. to hear the samples as intended, I would have to down mix any stereo samples to mono on my computer and reload them - or keep mono copies of all stereo samples on my SD card!
