That is not true. Plugging a real mono effect (one in and one out)
into a stereo-track/bus results in two effects being added both
controlled by the same gui.

and the filtering you propose doesn't make sense as there are various
plugins which change the number of the current channels
(Mono-to-Stereo, Stereo-to-Mono, etc.). These can be used to use a
real stereo-plugin on a mono track...

Wenn man mit Raubkopien Bands wie Brosis oder Britney Spears wirklich
verhindern könnte, würde ich mir noch heute einen Stapel Brenner und
einen Sack Rohlinge kaufen.
