On good monaural sound

Andrew Lutes just said @andrew_levine Personally, I love mono. I love surround too but mono seems to get right to the point. I feel so too, if it is _good_ mono, meaning the sound is...
  • Based on a good mix
  • Intelligible
  • Wide dynamic range
  • Wide bandwidth
The issue is that you can only get that by design. You can not e.g. condense two tracks based on runtime-stereophony to mono without comb-filtering intruding. You have to work with good material to start with and then carefully craft the mix, and then all will be well :-)
