Hi, I’ve been having an issue trying to record vinyl to my new laptop. Actually, I had the same issue with my old laptop but haven’t run into it as much with my ancient desktop, which is what’s weird.
When I try to record from my Audio Technica LP-120 to my laptops (both are Dell Inspirons), I am unable to pick up the difference in stereo channels. The laptop records both channels but records them exactly the same. In other words, if the record I’m playing has bass isolated to the left channel and vocals isolated to the right, this won’t be the case in the playback on my laptop; it’ll just be both instruments in both channels.
My desktop computer (also a Dell) is from the stone age, but is able to record with proper playback, and this is literally the only reason I haven’t thrown the thing away yet. Someone, please help.
(Apologies if this question has already been answered … I can’t find the answer, possibly because I’m a total novice when it comes to this stuff and don’t really know the terminology.)
