Difficulty Recording Multiple Tracks

Hello, I’m having difficulty setting up my equipment to record audio to two separate tracks. For reference, my set up:

Audacity 2.3.2
Windows 10
2x Samson Q2U mics
Behringer Xenyx 802 Analog Mixer
Behringer UCA222 USB audio interface
Microphones connected to Xenyx via XRL cable
Xenyx connected to UCA222 via dual 1/4" TRS male to dual RCA male

I’ve set the Xenyx 802 up so that mic 1 is hard panned all the way to the left, and mic 2 is hard panned all the way to the right. When I speak into the microphones, the monitors in the lower right of the Xenyx light up as expected. That is, when I speak into mic 1, only the left side lights up, and only the right side when I use mic 2. This is confirmed with headphones, too. I’ve connected headphones both to the UCA222 and the phone out jack on the mixer. I observe the same behavior, I only hear out of the left when using mic 1, and the right when using mic 2. So I don’t think it’s a hardware issue (although it could be).

However, when I record into Audacity, mic 1 is recorded on both tracks and mic 2 doesn’t pick up audio at all. Here is what Audacity looks like when I record. https://imgur.com/K6YEgIo

You can see in the first couple of seconds I"m speaking into mic 1. I’m speaking into mic 2 around seconds 4-5. I’m not sure what else I’m supposed to do. Is there some common audacity setting that I don’t know about that I have to change in order to record audio to two separate tracks?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Apparently Windows can be set for mono (1 channel) and that doesn’t stop Audacity from being set to stereo (2 channels) while Windows is only feeding-it one channel. See [u]this post[/u].

In that case it turned-out to be a hardware problem but if you can follow that outline and find the 2-channel stereo setting in Windows you may be able to correct your problem.

This solved it! Thank you so much!
