The same output signal going to two speakers is still mono, which is what
the mono switch does. You can most certainly hear the difference when you
hit the mono switch. This is also very helpful in MixBus which has a visual
indicator for out of phase stereo signals -- you can see as well as hear
problems in the mono mix if the stereo signals have phase problems.
