Problem with Audacity 2.0.3 not recording in stereo[SOLVED]

Hi Everyone,

I hope someone can help me with this strange problem.
I’ve re-installed Windows Vista Business on my PC, and want to use Audacity 2.0.3 on it to record and digitize my LPs.

I’ve connected my USB-turntable, and adjusted the recording parameters in the dropdown menus to the following values:

Speakers (Realtek High Definition)
Microsoft Sound Mapper
2 (Stereo) Input Channels

When I start recording, 2 channels are indeed recorded, but IN MONO, NOT IN STEREO - I have been using a stereo demonstration record to make absolutely sure.
Obviously, there will be a particular tweak to be done somewhere, but I have no idea where. Can anyone help me with this ?
If you need any further information, please fire away.

Thanks very much in advance.


Set the USB device recording settings to 2 channel stereo in the Windows Sound Control Panel.

Busy recording IN STEREO already as I write, my dear Steve: you are GREAT, thanks so much !! :smiley: :smiley: :smiley:
Keep up the good work here !
