Focusrite 2i2 recording vocals in stereo?

Post by DragonflyJones » Sun Dec 29, 2013 10:44 am

I'm still a bit of noob so please bear with me.

For some reason i cannot record any vocals in stereo using my focusrite 2i2 and auria. I've tried everything I can think of(input matrix, output matrix, reset, unplug, replug) but no matter what the recorded vocal audio shows up as mono. At this point any and all help is appreciated.

this is absolutely normal to record vocals in mono. Vocals usually don't have stereo information, so it would not make sense to record something that is not there. This is the reason why microphones for vocal recording are all mono.

But of course it is possible to record stereo: create a new stereo audio track in Auria and set it to have two dots enabled in the Input Matrix. Use a stereo mic or two mono mics.
