Subject: ACID MS version 10 QUESTIONS

I just got AcidMS10 and everytime I record anything from my condenser mic, it plays back only out of the left side. I couldn't find anything online that helped me fix this issue. Also, when I had an older version of ACID, when I was ready to record a second 'track', it would automaticaaly start below track 1. Now when I record something else (ex. another verse), it records over thee first track. I have no idea how to get around these issues. if anyone can help me out, I'd greatly appreciate it. My email address is alexlamont89@gmail.com. feel free to email me. THANKS

I work with Acid Pro 7, so not sure about MS.

1. Are you feeding your mic into both channels?
If it is going via a mixer you could send it to both channels.

Or you can choose the channel that you want to record:
https://www.custcenter.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/407/~/how-do-i-record-from-a-mono-source-using-acid-or-vegas%3F

First set the right sound card, options->preference-Audio device.

The above is a screenshot of Vegas, in Acid pro it goes like this: right click on the track that you want to record, then select input ->choose your sound card, then choose stereo or mono, if you only have one channel then choose mono.

2. Usually it records on the track that is selected/highlighted/active (also depending on the record button if it is enabled).
Make a track below the other track that you want to record on, enable the recording button on that, and disable it on the previous track, otherwise both will record the audio.

Have you seen the manual?
Look at page 31: http://dspcdn.sonycreativesoftware.com/manuals/musicstudio10_qsg_enu.pdf

Are you recording to a mono track ? As there is only one mic that is the thing to do, then you pan it left/middle/right/wherever - it will start as centre by default.

If you are for some odd reason recording a single mic to a stereo track, copy the left channel to the right channel or the track, which should set the initial image before panning 'centre'.

If you are recording a new track, you create the track and arm it to record, and disarm the first track.

Maybe a quick read of the manual, help, or an onine tutorial (this website or Youtube) would be an idea.
