Recording through 2 channels

Good evening,

I’d be very grateful for some help please, I have been trying to find a solution for ages but have run out of ideas…

I have the focusrite Scarlett 2i2 and a macbook pro with macOS Mojave.

No matter what I do I cannot record through 2 channels, on the audacity screen I have ‘core audio’ selected, scarlett selected in both the recording device and output device and 2 (stereo) recording selected. I have followed all the settings in the audacity help section but nothing has worked.

I have no idea what else to try, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks, Jay
