Audiotechnica turntable AT-LP60 right channel missing

When I listen to the music and/or make a recording (using USB connection to computer), the left channel appears fine. The right channel is absent.

    As it turned out, we needed to make two changes to software settings. One change was part of the audacity software, telling the program to accept stereo and not mono. The other change involved going into the control panel and finding the "sound" inputs and making sure that the sound card was reading two channels. Sorry if I am not explaining it well. I don't know the techincal way of saying it.

    Thanks to everyone. I had to make two changes on the computer itself, not the turntable. I had to change a setting in Audacity to allow input of STERO channels. That was found in a pull down menu (I forget the details). This gave me two identical channels but not sterreo. But at least I had LEFT and RIGHT coming in. The second change involved going to the "Control Panel" and making changes to the input that the sumd card accepts. I think it was under "microphone." Anyway now I am getting not just two channels, but stereo.

    Of the suggestions below, none actually applied to my problem. But the person who talked about setting up the software did talk about things that I had to do before I was able to do recording. My problem happened after I figured out how to record and I was getting just one channel. But anyway as you see (above) I was able to change the input to TWO channels and then make sure the input was actually stereo. Lucky for me I have a husband who is pretty good with computers and though he had never set up a turntable before, he knew how to make adjustments for sound input and output.

    After doing all this, I then went back into the control panel and adjusted the level at which the recordings were input into the computer because they were coming in way too strong, and lots of the louder portion of the audio was getting clipped.

SOURCE: Appears to be installed properly but doesn't record

When you first connect the turntable, Windows XP (and Mac OSX) will often select the "USB Audio Codec" as the audio input and output for your entire system. Since your turntable does not have speakers, audio will not be heard from your programs until you tell Windows not to use the turntable as an output device. Here's how to change these settings so that your internal sound card will always be used for playback whether or not your ION TTUSB is connected via USB:

    For Windows:
  1. On the bottom left of your screen, select the "Start" menu.
  2. Select "Settings" then "Control Panel".
  3. In the window that opens, select the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon. (If you don't see a choice called "Sounds and Audio Devices," choose the "Switch to Classic View" option in the panel on the left of the window, and the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon should become available in the list on the left.
  4. Select the "Audio" Tab at the top of the "Sounds and Audio Devices" control panel window.
  5. Under "Sound Playback," choose your internal sound card as the default device. This varies by computer but should not be set to "USB Audio Codec" or "Microsoft Sound Mapper".
  6. Under "Sound Recording," select "USB Audio Codec" for your default device.
  7. Check the box titled "Use only default devices".
  8. Click "Apply"...then "OK".


    For Mac:
  1. Open your Hard Disk.
  2. Open your "Applications" folder.
  3. In the "Applications" folder, open the "Utilities" folder.
  4. In the "Utilities" folder, open the "Audio MIDI Setup".
  5. In the "Audio MIDI Setup" under Audio Devices, set:

    • "Default Input" to "USB Audio Codec"
    • "Default Output" to "Built In Audio"
    • "System Output" to "Built in Audio"

Now, all programs, including Audacity, will only use your internal sound card for audio output.

SOURCE: Dead left channel

I have had the same problem on my 1210 MKII. I have taken it apart a number of times to replace the original lights with LED's, and naturally thought I messed something up in the reassembly. I actually found that the problem was in the connection between the tone-arm and the pick-up "housing".(Pardon my bad english) There is a little rubber band in between, and sometimes you have to unscrew the "housing" flip the rubber band, and screw it back on pretty hard. Also try cleaning the four contact pins before screwing it back on. I have heard of quite a few having this problem. A pretty obvious thing to do, but I had not thought of it, and it would have saved my from taking the entire machine apart several times.
Good Luck

How transfer music to nook


First in the OS make sure that recording device is USB (Start > Setting > Control Panel > Sounds and Audio > Audio). Adjust the audio recording volume, as well (Start > Programs > Accessories > Entertainment > Volume Control > Options> Properties. Click on Adjust Volume For Recording, for some versions of Windows). Unfortunately you can't directly listen to the recording on USB in this software. You would need a regular turntable with amplifier and then RCA L/R audio to 3.5 mm audio adapters. Connect this to the Line In of the computer (blue port) on the sound card. Then set the recording device to Line In and unmute Line-In in a similar way as above.

Now try recording in Cakewalk Pyro. (I recommend making a short recording and then playing it back to check the settings.) Try the Windows Sound Recorder (similar to finding the audio recording volume) to record if Pyro doesn't work. You may have a problem with the USB turntable or your USB port. You should see a waveform if the software is recording anything. Adjust the audio so that the entire waveform is consistently less than 100% of the maximum. A flat line in the center of the audio trace is a sign that there is no incoming audio signal. I usually start the software recording and then start the turntable at the correct track. Thus a flat line for a few (~10 seconds on my system) is normal.

After recording, you need to export the file or files as MP3s. (I subdivide a longer recording into tracks but that can be a pain. Identifying the "break points" is not always obvious.) Then File > Export (iirc). Select the MP3 option and the quality. I put all my music into the myusername/music/recordings subfolder (I created the folder) to make them easier to find again.

Connect the USB cable from the Nook to the computer. Access the Nook from the File Explorer. (Double-click on the Computer (My Computer) icon with Windows, it's the Devices icon on a Mac.) Then double-click on the Nook's icon (there may be more than one).

Open a second explorer window to the directory where you saved the MP3s. Then just drag and drop the files/folders to the Nook. If you put the files onto the internal memory of the Nook, make sure to put them in the My Music or My Audiobooks folders. (You can do transfer the files to the memory card without plugging in the USB cable, if you have a card reader. Just be careful not to lock the read/write switch on the card and do not reformat it.)

I've used several programs and found Audacity (free) to be just as good and straight-forward to use. However, the programs all work the same way. If the USB device isn't working (or the default recording device), you get nothing.

I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(I will note that most of my recordings were done from cassettes using Line-in from the headphone jack. Thus I only had to diagnose problems with the patch cable and the default recording device once I checked that my headphones worked for the tape. I saved my recordings as WAV and then burned them to CD as Disc At Once for a player that didn't read MP3s.)

I want to connect a turntable (LP RECORDS) to my G550 in order to edit and transfer music to CD using Audacity. Can I ,for example, use a USB port?


There do exist turntables with a USB port.

Or, if your turntable just has the "post-and-ring" RED and WHITE stereo audio RCA-jacks, then you need an adapter to merge the two audio channels, and to connect to the "microphone-input" socket on your computer.

Then, tell Audacity to listen to that "microphone-input", and record from that source.

After recording lots of music from my Ion Contour LP I have suddenly lost output from one channel??


First disconect the wires to the cartridge. With you amp on, touch each wire one at a time. You should hear a buzz on two of the wires (one one each channel) and nothing on the other two. If you do hear the buzz on both channels the cartridge has failed or the connection to it is poor. If you are still missing a channel then the problem lies in either what connects the two devices, or the magnetic cartridge pre-amp inside the amp.

It sounds like you've connected it to the computer's MIC input instead of LINE IN input.
Check your sound card connectors. The icon for LINE IN will be an arrow pointing in to three curved lines. More-or-less like this:

Recording one channel only


I had the same problem on a turntable and it was the cable, those rca cables are notorious for breaking inside at the plug end. The stylus cartridge not being completely plugged in may cause it too I imagine. I'd bet it's the right rca cable broken inside at the plug end.

SONY RCD-W100


Can you please update this with your connections. I assume that you are connecting the turntables to the mixer? Verify that the mixer is set to send out true stereo. What mixer are you using?
Note that most mixers "pan" all of the channels to the center sending out mono to the left and right. In most live shows, it makes no sense to send out true stereo. The left and right are for the speaker chains. In order to get true stereo out of the mixer, you wil need to pan the input channel for the left side all the way to the left and the input for the right channel to the right.
