This should read '2' mono tracks...

No, it's 2 different patches, but triggered from the same 'source'. 
Listening to both of them 'mono' is no fun. But listening to both of 
them stereo, (1 hard left and one hard right) is no fun either. There's 
quite some modulation going on, that's why hard panning doesn't work for 
me. I'm not planning on editing them in live apart from some reverb or 
EQ'ing and that should be done on both tracks simultaneously.

yes, I see your point.

WHat I wanted to do, is record both patches into a stereo track. In that 
case they are hard panned right/left. And than do something so I can 
change the hard panning into soft panning. I have yet to try Kai's 

BTW, this is possible in RME's totalmix. Just change the width setting  
and done! (see pic) Alas this is not recorded into live. Don't know if 
this is possible
