If I plug my amp into the rear microphone jack on my computer soundboard, the sound comes through the stereo mix (speakers), but when I set the rear microphone in the multitrack view for recording and try to record it, an error occurs: Device could not be opened. (Apparently I can record in mono, but not in stereo. Why?)

Any suggestions?

I'm not really looking for gear to buy, just want to use Adobe like I used to on XP. Got all sorts of problems with W7.

Maybe I just don't get your question, but... How exactly are you planning to record in stereo? A microphone input is a mono source...

It may be a mono source, but I don't want to end up with my recording being played on just one speaker.

Then pan the track center, instead of left or right...

Yeah, most sources are recorded mono. The stereo field (or the illusion of stereo) is achieved by panning those mono sources in different places.

Usually, only things that *already* have stereo imaging (synths, etc.) are recorded in stereo.

Could I get some more talent in the monitors, please?
