Do you have a compressor side-chained on the sub-bass track? And you send a stereo signal to the side-chain?

If so, I guess if that compressor does not latch the two channels to each other, it will compress its two output channels differently and that is the problem.

If this compressor is ReaComp, select "Auxiliary input L" (or R) as the side-chain input.

Or send the side-chain as mono from channel 1 to channels 3/4.

I am sure there are several other possible solutions that I cannot think of right now...

can you clarify what is causing you to think that it's stereo?
If it's just a visual thing, you're not misinterpreting the track meters are you? ie thinking that the sidechain signal is the right channel and the sub bass is the left?

If your side-chain is truly mono, ReaComp should act identically on the L/R channels. So, yeah... what is it that makes you think that it doesn't?

ReaComp is stereo linked and will affect both sides equally no matter what you do. Many of us kind of wish they would give us the option to unlink it, but for now this is what we have. I think domzy might be on to something. Else there’s something weird happening in the routing.
