I thought the same when someone suggested it to me so let me just take five minutes of your time and just read this and see what you think afterwards. The idea of mixing in mono for me is similar to mixing on small little speakers (some people call them grot boxes), in the sense that rather than it sounding great on big speakers it sounds rubbish – you’re limiting your choices and if you can get it sounding great in mono then it’s going to sound great in stereo. When in mono, the track just sounds flat and coming at you from the speaker. You can’t hear the song in all its ‘fantastic-nous’. It makes the track sound less desirable but making this part of your mix process will help you for lots of reasons.
