Newbie Problem - Can't Record Stereo

I’m digitizing some old album tracks and I’m trying to record in stereo but it’s only recording mono.

I’m set to MME, source is USB Audio CODEC, recording mode is Stereo. But I’m only hearing and recording mono.

What other settings could be forcing it to mono?

Windows …

As Trebor, above. Audacity gets sound from Windows, not the device. There’s a step in the middle that’s not always obvious.


Wow! Thanks for this. Not obvious is right!!!
