Hey,
I'm trying to find a VST that can simply takes the output of one of the channels and sends it off to the other... I've been trying to find one for a few days now, but I couldn't, so maybe you all could help me...

"a VST that can simply takes the output of one of the channels and sends it off to the other"

What channels do you mean? The plugins own channels? Your DAWs output channels? An effect or a synth? :?

Sorry for not being that helpful with the details :neutral:

What I'm going to use this for is as follows: I have a USB sound card of sorts (It's simply a singstar USB dongle for the PS3, which also works on the PC and saved my life a couple times), which takes two mono inputs (the mics, or whatever you plug from the 3.5mm input) and puts each one on one side of the device (which acts like a mic, as far as windows can detect it)... I want to use the two mics on OBS, which can use vst 2.x plugins. As I want to be able to separately control both mics, I need to be able to separate the two channels and output back to obs as stereo, as it doesn't have a built-in panner. I found that the easiest way to solve the problem was to use plugins, but I can't find one that suits my needs.

Melda MUtility is free and probably does what you want

Sounds to me like you want to be able to pan the left and right channels into the centre, which this does along with a bunch of other stuff.


Alex Hilton A1 Stereo Control might be worth checking out too

No idea what OBS is ... sounds like you have a stereo input that you want to make mono in real time? What DAW do you use?

you want to split a stereo channel
then take both splits to individual mono channels?

can't your host separate the stereo channel to two mono?

That worked just fine, thanks... Funnily enough I had the Melda Plugins collection (dunno which one) already installed, but I never thought of that...
