Okay, so I have an M-audio Fast Track mixer for recording. about a month ago, some weird things started happenign to to. as of now, the output is all screwed up I think. Basically, when I'm monitering, the output plays out of both speakers (normal). But the weird thing is, when I record with my microphone and I play back the track, the sound only comes out one speaker. Is my mixer busted? Is my mac busted? My mic?
does it have a knob for playback and direct
I think this question would be best answered in Riffs and Recording, since that it talks about recording gear. I'll move this to the forum.
You tend to record stuff in mono...have you made sure that you panned to center?
yea inputs for mics and mono sources are recorded to the L bus but you can set the pan on the mixer/interface to move that audio around the "stereo field" be it the left or the right.
Check the panner in your software... also check it in your interface applet.
