Hey guys, currently I'm recording with Garageband. I know, really bad. I do have pro tools, but my problem is I don't have a live drum set, so I use computer drums and the ones that came with pro tools just outright suck. So, until I get better drums, I'm using garageband.

Now it records fine. But I just realized it was recording only in mono. Once I got a good set of headphones and plugged them in, the recordings were only in one ear. When I panned it to the right, it faded into oblivion. Now, I'm using an M-Audio Fast Track Pro. I have clicked it to "Stereo", and still no change.

Any ideas?

you have missed a setting somewhere in the program. You're recording in stereo and it should be set for mono.
Ive never worked with GB so I don't know where to start you off on settings pages but just go though them all.
You may even have something on the audio tracks you arm to record which sets stereo or mono

I've looked all over and can't find anything. I think it may be the interface, because the mac's mic is recording in stereo.

EDIT: I went into the settings for the box and got it to work. Thanks for at least trying to help me out haha. I just needed a bit more patience.

just a tip. Garageband is not at all bad. yeah, it's not protools, but it's a quality program.

one option is to do your drums in GB and import those into protools for the rest of your tracking.

personally, i prefer to do my in the box production in Logic and all my tracking and mixing in protools. it works out quite well. i'm sure doing that with GB would be easy enough.

Hm, I never thought of it that way. I would love to mix in pro tools. My quesiton then would be: How would I go about recording the drums and then moving them? Do I export them as wav/mp3 and then import?
