Default Track grouping Folders not properly panning individual tracks

My panning works perfectly when the same tracks are outside a given folder, however whenever they are in a folder, the tracks wont pan hard left or right. If I pan them hard right within the folder, there's no sound at all. If I pan them hard left the stay in the center.

It's not my monitors, or headphones, the tracks worked fine outside a folder.

This doesn't happen to one particular folder, but any and all folders.

Any ideas?

Can you take a screenshot of your folder track with its routing window? Upload it here: https://stash.reaper.fm/ and post the forum code so we can see it. Sounds like somehow your folder tracks have only one channel. How exactly are you creating the folder tracks?

I'm just dragging and dropping from the track panel.

Yea, sorry i didn't mean the routing matrix, I meant the routing window that opens when you click where the mouse is sitting.

I can actually reproduce this problem if the folder has 2 channels and I set the child track to parent channels 2-3 (in the routing window). Then only channel 2 makes it to the parent since 3 doesn't exist there. Does that help at all?

Only your battery track should have more than 2 output channels unless you're doing some sidechaining or something like that.

upload your project file (don't need any media, just the .rpp) to the stash and i'll take a look. you could also do a portable install to see if the problem is related to your config.

Have you got some hardware routing on the "Lead vox" outer folder?

(I ask because I've done that...)

I ended up just moving the tracks out of the folder and making a new parent track which has been working well. However, I hope it doesn't happen again when I'm tracking with someone
I can't really show you the .rpp since I already had it saved without the problem parent track. Next time I'll be sure to hit you up. Thanks for the help

This will happen if you have a mono plugin on the folders.
