You can get stereo -> mono plug converters. But then you're left with something that will only play in one headphone if thats the way you're using it.

Don't know. He's a quirky fellow, I'd gather.

CL gear is unlike anything else. There's good and bad in that, for certain values of bad. Hard panned left and right channels is one of those values for some. The PB2 (maybe the OG PB as well? Don't know - never had one) does the same for the Gongues, AVDogs, and Deerhorn. Hard left, hard right.

Run it into a DAW or get a small mixer.

Both the original cocoquantus and plumbutter uses 2 mono outputs.

You could route the right channel into the left and the left into the right and attenuate to taste.

Have you started to modulate the VCA? The resulting movement should explain why the stereo spread on Ciat-Lonbarde is part of its acoustic body.

Had great fun earlier today running a Sidrax loop (recorded in to a Line 6 DL4) into the Cocoquantus and having various Quantussy outputs modulating the input and output VCAs. Repatching and playing with the chaos on the Quantussy brought out some hypnotic rhythmic variations. Definitely something I want to explore more!

... when you plug another ciat instrument into it, it's stereo field is preserved.

for example the tetrax, sidrax, and deerhorn, all create amazing spatial pallets when performed.

Or if you plugged your PB into the coco, then you would have some instruments going to one delay and some to the other -- hence two delay settings for your drum machine.

I think the idea is that you will patch the instruments into eachother, and the panning/ seperation is preserved.... IE the inputs on the plumb split to both filters, and the inputs to the deerhorns do the same with the VCAs.
