No, actually such effects are applied specifically to mono buffers.
Stereo buffers are sort of buffers with stereo effects assumed to be
already incorporated, whereas you need to process a mono buffer to
create a stereo effect.
An sound source emits a mono sound, which we hear in stereo (2 ears).
That transformation is your processing. A stereo buffer means "a
source in front of each ear" or in front of each speaker or what not.
Someone correct me if I'm wrong, please :)
