SOURCE: Recording in mono and not stereo

Thanks for your rapid response. Fortunately I discovered the problem and was able to resolve it. Whether it is just my computer or all computers I wouldn't know. When I switched my computer off, after recording vinyl to my pc, then switched it back on again my pc had reset the default input so I had to reconfigure it again. Since then I have not used it but wonder if I have to reconfigure the recording device everytime that I switch my computer on. I did make the USB Codec microphone my default recording device and applied the setting but the pc seemed to do its own thing.

All the best

SOURCE: Continuous humming Noise in record mode

3 things to check: First, do you have the turntable grounded to the Stereo receiver, if not, make sure you do. Second, what kind of Audio cable interconnects the two pieces of electronics? Should be a very good balanced cable like Monster ILN or Phoenix Gold, or ProFlex. That alone can cause major noise. Third, Are you using a good power/line conditioning surge? Panamax, Furman,Monster all make very good line conditioning surge units. You've got an AC humm, it can be caused by just about anything in your home from a bad light bulb to a loose common wire in any AC outlet. LP's will amplify any kind of noise that's not heard on other devices. Chances are if you tune your receiver to AM you will hear it as well. Hope this helps.

How to transfer vinyl to cd-simply-I have manual but very confusing-simple step by step needed-thank you-Al B


The popular recording software known as Audacity is a good choice for getting all sorts of sounds saved in a digital format. The easy-to-use features of this program will help you to create complex musical compositions, or just record incoming audio streams. One of the basic things you can do with Audacity is to record sound from vinyl records. Many people still keep vinyls on hand, though the production of this medium has diminished. Here are the basic steps that will help you to use Audacity to record vinyl.

Steps

  1. Get your phonograph or record player. Assemble your collection of records and make sure that your record player is in good functioning condition.

  2. Use a cable to connect your record player to the computer with Audacity installed on it. In order to record from vinyl, you'll need to make sure you have accurately connected your record player as an incoming audio stream into the microphone jack of your computer.

    • Use hardware adapters to secure your cable connection. Many older record players utilize a 1/4-sized input jack. The modern laptop computer, as well as many desktop models, use a smaller, 1/8-sized input jack. You can buy simple adapters at your local electronics store to fix this problem.

    • Make sure that your cables and adapters support stereo.


  3. Open the Audacity program on your computer. You will see the signature Audacity screen, with controls at the top, and an empty space to accommodate created tracks.

  4. Start playing the record on your record player.

  5. Hit the red circle that represents the "record" button in Audacity.

  6. Observe the sound coming into Audacity. You should see the track being populated with sound, represented by a fluctuating line as the cursor moves along.

  7. Hit "Stop" to stop the recording.

  8. Stop the record player.

  9. Repeat this process with the entire track. Reset the record player, start playing and hit the Audacity "Record" button again, allowing the entire track to populate with the sound of the vinyl record.

  10. Save your project in your desired format. Audacity supports a number of file formats for the finished product. You can select one of these when you have recorded the entire track. Make every song its own track, or simply record the entire side of the record on one track.

B2 Pro left stereo channel is Mute


This is not a stereo microphone. There is no left channel. If you are recording into a stereo input, you need to split the input into two mono inputs, and record each channel as a mono track.

Product: Ion Tape Express - Tape-To-Mp3 Converter/Player (with EZ Tape Converter software) Problem: I'm able to record my tape tracks as mp3's on the computer, but the sound is always in mono...


In all likelihood, you issue is in your recording software settings. If check the help files included with the program (hit the F1 key to pull these up) and search for stereo, I bet you find a setting on the software is set to mono.

The second spot to look is in Control panel> Sounds and Audio devices> Audio tab. Click Advanced... under Sound Recording. See what control options are available to you since they differ from one audio app to another. This should bring up the setting for your audio input, look for a setting that says stereo or mono.

Hope this is helpful to you.

My microphone only records on one side. how to i do fi it so both lines records instead of just rhe top one?


Your microphone could be a mono or single channel pickup. Look at the microphone plug and count the isolators between the metal contacts, if you count one isolator and two contacts you have a mono microphone, or if you have two insulators and three contacts you have a stereo microphone. If your computer only has a mono microphone input you may have to use your line in on your computer. If your volume is weak and you get noise on your channel you may be required to use a microphone pre amp and plug the output into the line in jack. Last make sure your computer speaker mixer is set correctly for stereo.

L have numerous old vinyl records, 33 and 45 rpm and l would like to record them onto my computer, and don't know what is required. l was advised to find a cord to plug into the headphone plug on my amp...


Lots of advise on the web with various solutions, You can use a 1/8 jack to 1/8 jack or an adapter depending on the size of the amp jack. Some sites don't recommend this, but if you make sure your sound levels are low (PC and Input source)to start you won't blow anything. Some set ups don't need your stereo at all and software is available at various prices and quality. Check out reviews. Depending on your current set up and turntable you may need a preamp, newer ones are built in. You can get USB equipment like turntable with usb and RCA inputs to make it a little easier and 1/8 line in jack to connect other equipment like a tape player(about $100.00). Be cautious about the software, lots make promises that they can't keep. Cheap is as cheap gets. EZVinyl converter and ITunes is troublesome, Audacity is complex for advanced users. Try LPRIPPER.COM its expensive but I've heard good things and you can download a trial. Lots of How to sites can be Googled. Read a few, they all don't always consider everything you might find useful.

AKG Perception Microphone ony recording in mono but want stereo.


I have similar problems with inputing stereo sound. How do you know your mic port on the PC is set for stereo? What kind of a cable are you using? If it is an XLR, the connection is pure mono. Maybe you need a TRS cable, which looks like a 1/4 inch jack but is really stereo. Maybe you need a stereo mini. Usually a cable mismatch is the problem. Is your phantom power supply passing stereo? All the ones I have seen are mono. You may need two. Is your sound capture set for stereo? Are the input level controls set correctly for equal volume on left or right channel? I would try the mic with a regular amplifier to insure both channels are working. Then trace the signal from mic to power supply and power supply to computer.

Recording in mono


I'm downloading ACL now to check the possible settings.  Double click the sound horn next to your time and click Options Properties and adjust sound for Recording.  Now you are in the recording settings window for Windows.  See what those options are.  Look at the bar on the top that has to do with line in and L/R  If it's greyed out and can't move it...your driver/card is only letting you record mono.  If it's gray like it's active and you can move it left or right then it's a setting in your ACL.  I'll be posting about that shortly

Stereo requires two different inputs, as the very name implies. If you're using just one mic, it is possible to "pan" that input to both left and right, but is not truly stereo. For true stereo, you must have at least 2 mics, or 2 or more of any other sources...accordianman
