I usually make a short EP/LP of 7-8 original songs every year. Because of the brevity of my releases (I'm a full time student and have other obligations), I think it would be cool to have a mono and stereo program of my record, with the first 8 or so tracks being mono and the rest stereo. Since I started recording music in 2006 or so I have been obsessed with panning, and thinking of an instrument's spatial location is a big part of my arranging method. Working in mono will prove to be a challenge, but it will be something new and probably cool. I really love the punchiness of mono, and I think the material I'm working on right now would work well in that format.

How can I make up for the lack of two channels when I mix? What are ways of approaching a mono mix, as opposed to a stereo mix? Any tips would be appreciated.

I had a tough time w/ mono but got into it finally when I realized you've really gotta think 'front to back' ... things cannot be as easily 'balanced' or equal, you kind of have to choose each element as being forward/featured or background/blended. hope that helps
