Subject:Recording in stereo

I am recording single tracks in Acid for the first time on my Edirol UA-1000. I've got a mic plugged into the input 1 jack and when I hit the record button, I just get the left track recorded and not a stereo image.

Since both of the waveforms of the recording should be identical, is there any way that I can record with the one mic and have it go to both chanels?

Do you think I have either the sound card or Acid set up incorrectly? I've looked through the preferences settings of both and haven't found any settings that work.

Any help/insight would be appreciated...

Thanks - John

Since you are only plugged into a single input - with a mono mic - you will only record data on that channel. This is the way audio hardware/drivers work in general.

Since it is a mono signal no matter how you look at it, you should just record it as a mono signal. You can select either the left or right channel in the ACID record dialog.

just record the one track, duplicate it, then pan hard left/right

easy as that

If you want to utilize both channles in the track, you will have to Y the cable (signal) coming out of your mic's preamp and then insert those two cables into the ch 1-chn2 (lft-rt) of your sound card. That's what I do if I want a stereo signal to play around with in track view. Hope that helps.
