you only need one instance per track in the first insert or directly after the VSTi, this is your VU and trim control. ** note make sure to set the VU meter to show OUTPUT. otherwise you will not see the action of the volume knob and enter a world of confusion!
i just had a memory (maybe incorrect) that the mono channel version was different with EQ functions and various complications. there is no reason not to use it other than the stereo version is perfect and you can use it on mono tracks anyway.
