About doubling vocals by tracking them in stereo

How to do this, that and the other. Share, learn, teach. How did X do that? How can I sound like Y?

Maybe someone likes to try my Azurite ADT preset :D

If you don't have the free Azurite plugin, I've linked it to this topic so you can grab it.

Here's my preset:

And again, it's still not a "stereo" track, since true "stereo" requires different information in both channels. Having the exact, same audio information in both channels would make it a "dual-mono" signal, not a stereo one.
You are technically correct. However, normally we use the term 'stereo track' to designate the fact that there is separate information for left and right, regardless if that information is different or not. A stereo plugin doesn't care if it is processing the same signal on each side, the result is still two separate channels with information. From the perspective of a DAW there is no difference between stereo or dual-mono.
True. I was merely re-stating the technical difference, since the OP seemed to be a bit confused about the differences.

And yes, Azurite does offer some interesting effects for a free plug-in. I used it for ADT-type effects before grabbing Waves' Abbey Road ADT plug-in (and I still have Azurite installed, for other things). But anyone looking for something similar might find something in Azurite that can help.
