Podtrak P4 connected with XLR cables to two Samson Q2U mics. I do interviews. I record NOT through Audacity. I just import it after done.
- It should be in Audacity as Stereo, right? that is better than Mono because there are two mics right?
- I did 2 interviews with the same person on a different day. Same location, same equipment and everything. When I dropped or imported the first one into Audacity it says it is in Mono. The next day dropped the second interview in and it say it is in Stereo. Why is that?
- How many of you import each mic and edit in Audacity separately (I do know if you do it that was mono is best)? That seems like a lot of work if you have pretty good equipment. I mean I don’t have a team. I don’t have a world famous podcast. I don’t want to be a overly perfectionist and never get anything complete. Am I a fool?
- So years ago when I would transcribe my interviews to written word to be published in magazines and such. So i recorded a really good interview with my Pixel 3 with Googles own Recorder app. I really want to use the audio so trying to clean it up and make it okay in Audacity. From my question above, if it is better to do stereo over mono and I know that a Pixel 3 has 3 microphones. A top Mic, a bottom mic and a mic in the hole in the top edge. So would that be considered left/ right microphones and could be imported or edited in stereo?
