sound only coming out of 1 speaker [SOLVED]

Ok< I’ve read and reread, searched the different forums and internet and even watched youtube videos. The picture should be self explanatory but what I am trying to do is have these two tracks one audio and one guitar play on both speakers when I say it as a wave or mp3. You know like 1 channel (audio) playing out of the right and my guitar coming out of the left. Both were recorded at the same time through a Yahama USB Audio Interface AudioGram 6



To the left of the top track there’s a little menu drop-down (black arrow) > Make Stereo Track.


Thanks but there was No Change

Here is an updated pic of the software with the track name and positions changes and it still does not work correctly as evidenced by the output level indicator.

I just did that solution on my machine and it works for me.

I think the first thing I would do is view the full show. Control-F. You are looking at a small part of the whole track.

Attached is a three picture series of what it’s supposed to look like. The second picture will say Make Stereo Track when I click on it.

I used “CNTRL F” and allowed the view of the whole song being sung and played. This way I can see both the Audio and Guitar Track and they are both indicating that they are using the RIGHT Channel.

If I switch either channel to indicate the left channel then there is no sound coming out of that channel on play back. So I have left the channel with both indicating RIGHT

I then clicked on on the Audio Channel scrolled down to MAKE STEREO TRACK as you originally stated. The problem still existed and there was no sound coming out of my Left Speaker.

I then had a hunch and traced my cables.

My next question is, What color of the rainbow is used for STUPID. Please color me with it… my left speaker cable was not connected. I connected it and all is well.

Thanks for your time, I really feel bad that I did not check that off of my troubleshooting list first.


Lol. Glad it’s fixed.
I’ll close this topic as “solved”.
