Can I record 2 mono channles

Hi everyone

Completely new to Audacity and to recording. Hoping someone can help me with what is probably a simple question but I cant find the answer after much fiddling and looking. I am using Audacity 2.3.3 on Windows 10 with a Focusrite 2i2 front end. Using two inputs, a microphone and electric guitar, can I record in 2 mono channels using Audacity? I can only see that you have to record in stereo if using both channels. I want to record both channels in mono one reason being that I am practically deaf in one ear and can only hear one channel of stereo on headset playback. Thanks in advance.

You can record in stereo and then split the stero track to mono, using the drop down menu in the track’s Track Control Panel.
