Using Audacity 2.0.5 with UFO202 U-PHONE converter. Same problem on two different computers. One Win7HP. The other Win8.1Pro. Both have Realtek HD audio. Both current with software updates and hardware drivers.
Problem is that Audacity records only the left channel of a stereo recording. I see similar problems all over this forum and elsewhere on the internet. I have checked all the usual software settings …
Windows > Control Panel > Sound > Recording devices > UFO202 device > Properties > 2 channel (not 1 channel)
Audacity > Preferences > Devices > Recording > Channels > 2(Stereo)
Audacity recording window, Input device = USB audio codec, Input channels = 2
The equipment connection path is turntable => preamp phono in => preamp tape line out => UFO202 line in (with the switch set to line, not phono) => computer USB port.
Both channels are getting to the UFO202. I know this because the device has its own headphone out and I hear both channels through it.
I get one channel (left) all the way to Audacity if I change the Audacity input setting to 1 channel. I get two channels (of mono sound) all the way to Audacity if I change the Windows sound setting to 1 channel.
I get two channels of music all the way through to Audacity if I connect the UFO202 headphone out to the computer microphone in, although the Audacity input level is not high enough for a usable recording.
I get two channels of noise all the way through to Audacity if I connect the UFO202 line out to the computer microphone in (although at a usable input level if I wanted a recording of noise).
No problem recording, saving, labeling, or exporting whatever signal gets to Audacity (although, as noted above, the Audacity input level with UFO202 headphone out to computer microphone in is not high enough for a usable recording).
All done with high end audio interconnection cables, except for the USB interconnect, which comes hardwired to the UFO202 device.
This is the first use of the UFO202 device. So the device could be defective. I’m contacting Behringer support about that.
In the meantime, am I overlooking something in the setup and use of Audacity?
