    Ability to Play or Convert samples to Mono.
    It would be nice to both 2 options if possible, Convert would be destructive and also some other nondestructive way.

    Convert.
    This could be done in the Sampling Edit page, there should be a 'Settings' button (like the Stretch option has)
    Using the first encoder would select between:
    • Keep the left channel only.
    • Keep the right channel only.
    • Sum both channels to mono.
    Once 'Apply' is pressed the sample is destructively converted with the selected channel option.

    Playback (nondestructive - 2 Options)
    1 - Some sort of built-in utility/effect plugin for non-destructive purposes. It could simple with just an options to keep left, right or sum both channels, or more have more advanced features like how wide or narrow a sample/sound is. This could also be used for instruments.
    2 - On the Sampler add another menu with scrollable mono options (like sound engine emulations and filters)

    Rather than a pure "Mono" switch, how about a knob that can move a sound's stereo field toward the center?

    Sample values of the knob with left/right mix equations:

    0% = Mono.
    (0.5 * Left + 0.5 * Right) ___ (0.5 * Left + 0.5 * Right)

    10% = Mostly Mono.
    (0.55 * Left + 0.45 * Right) ___ (0.45 * Left + 0.55 * Right)

    50% = Halfway between stereo and mono.
    (0.75 * Left + 0.25 * Right) ___ (0.25 * Left + 0.75 * Right)

    90% = Mostly Stereo.
    (0.95 * Left + 0.05 * Right) ___ (0.05 * Left + 0.95 * Right)

    100% = Stereo.
    (1.0 * Left + 0.0 * Right) --- (0.0 * Left + 1.0 * Right)

    yes please! i'm specially for the nondestructive way. one knob on the engine tab, with just the option to switch between stereo, L and R would be great. being nondestructive is huge for me, specially on one shot drum samples from older records. lots of times, later throughout the production stages, i end up changing from L to R or viceversa, just because the other side sounds better in the overall mix.

    this would basically eliminate my desire for more then 16 internal outs. since i do this with so many sounds, i end up routing so many sounds to the daw, just to split the audio

    The real issue is that maschine doesn't work in mono at all, only double mono.
    You can test it by using a mono plugin on a mono track and you'll realize that the output grows by 6db, it happens because it sums both sides.
    Meaning it's not a real mono signal.
    This is bad CPU management....

    Yes please. And i would love to see the option D-One mentions about keeping the left or right channel only.

    To add to this, I would like this implemented via a utility, like in Ableton. So i can make any synth or sound mono before or after effect processing.

    Cross your fingers and hope that in 2019 someone realizes that it’s cool to add sampler features to a sampler... cause this is not happening this year.

    Holly Christ, please stop developing fancy things and focus on the foundation of important things, a sampler without stereo to mono capabilities? Can't believe we're in 2019
