Now you can choose a Routing-Presets. In this example you can see a simple true-stereo setup.
Channel 1 (left) is convolved with impulse 10 and added to Output 1 (left).
Channel 1 (left) is convolved with impulse 11 and added to Output 2 (right).
Channel 2 (right) is convolved with impulse 12 and added to Output 1 (left).
Channel 2 (right) is convolved with impulse 13 and added to Output 2 (right).
After choosing a routing-preset, you also can manually change the connection wire.
