I cannot record in stereo using Audacity Version 2.2.0 using Windows 10 Professional. I know that this problem has been brought up, answered and solved in the past but none of the fixes I’ve tried work for me. I’m using a Behringer UCA202 A/D audio converter connected between a tape deck and my laptop’s USB port. I have used every combination of audio host and recording device available but the only ones that will record sound are MME/Stereo Mix and Windows Direct/Microphone (USB audio CODEC). In both cases Recording Channels is set to Stereo (2) Stereo Recording Channels. But what is actually recorded is both channels combined, not stereo. When I look at Properties/Advanced for Stereo Mix it shows 2 channel, 16 bit, 48000 Hz (DVD quality), as it should, but what is recorded is mono. BTW, the UCA202 has a headphone jack for monitoring and what I hear from that is stereo.
Can anyone offer a clue as to how I can record in stereo using Audacity?
