1. What is the best way to convert stereo into mono? I just drag them both into a "*~ 1." which seems to do the trick but I feel like thats not how it should work and I'm just sorta forcing the two together incorrectly. (See example below)
2. What is the best way to turn a signal into the float/decimal of its volume. Currently I have it go into a "meter~" then taking connecting to the output of that. But if the meter won't be seen, isn't it just wasted CPU displaying it?
