Ganging and burying in a layer will work, but it is not an elegant solution.
In a corporate event I can have many, many stereo sources and it is not practical to tie up two strips for each one. The cues for these shows can come thick and fast, video rolls, walk up stings, sound effects etc. Some presenters will hand you their media as they are walking on to the stage so there is no time to check it first.
A simple “sum to mono” button in the preamp screen of the stereo channels would be fantastic, as it would be the fastest way to fix a problem!
