Answers as above are correct, and you can also create an audio test-file and save it, run it through headphones / amp.
Test file can be created with a sound editor such as Audacity, Wavepad, etc.
First create a mono track with lower-frequency sine-wave of say 440 Hz (middle A) of 1 second.
Start a new mono track and create sine wave of say 1000 Hz, also 1 second long.
From about 0.5 sec, highlight BOTH tracks to end and select 'Silence' function.
Select ALL and select 'FADE OUT' function.
Than select a slight tremelo effect. 4Hz tremelo at 50-60% gives a more pleasant 'chime' sound than just a 'beep'.
With ALL still selected, REPEAT about 59 times using repeat function to create a 60 second file.
Now click the pane of second track and select the position slider symbol (Audacity), slide track right until you see peak waveforms are alternate. Left-Right-Left-Right.....
Using balance controls and drop-down menu for each track, make track 1 fully LEFT, and track 2 fully RIGHT.
Looks similar to this:
Track1(L):!!!!__!!!!__!!!!__!!!!__!!!!
Track2(R):__!!!!__!!!!__!!!!__!!!!__!!!!
Click control-pane of track 1 and choose 'MAKE STEREO TRACK'.
Save as MP3, WAV or whatever you prefer.
Name it something like stereo_test.

I am only hearing audio out of my left headphone speaker when plugged into the Tascam US-122. how can I play back my tracks and have the audio fill both speakers?


you might be using a mono output jack or input jack.....check the jack end...1 ring = mono / 2 rings = stereo
make sure your sending a stereo signal in, then check the L/R balance.

Double check that the adapter you bought is designed for stereo. The easiest way to check this is count the number of metal bands you can see on the adapter, stereo headphones will have 3 metal bands separated by 2 plastic bands, whereas mono will have 2 metal bands separated by a plastic band.
If you accidentally bought a mono adapter, this will cause sound to only play in one ear.

Your microphone has a stereo miniplug, with 3 contacts, that look exactly like headphone minijacks. You have not stated where you are trying to plug this microphone, but most computers /sound cards will accept only mono minijacks, with 2 contacts. Should you have left/ right inputs for microphones, buy a splitter adapter that will turn the stereo jack of the microphone into two mono jacks.

Need to set it to stereo. There may be a switch on your mixer, and you will also need to change the settings in Cubase to record in stereo, not mono.

42" Sharp Aquous audio; Mono vs. Stereo


no. that is not true. the person you spoke to obviously didn't know what they were talking about. you mean to tell me that everyone that has a cable or satellite box with a stereo or hd tv is not going to receive stereo sound? really,think about it. you only need a cable box( for now ) if you have premium channels (hbo,showtime etc). you can connect the cable line right into the tv if you only have basic cable. look at the back of your cable box. if you have a red, white, & yellow audio/video output, then the box is stereo.connect these outputs to your tv. this connection however is not hd.you will need a hd box with a hdmi cable for hd .To put the tv on stereo mode, there should be a way via the menu and/or the audio button on the remote to get it off mono and put it on stereo. your manual should at least show you around the settings of your tv.

My sound blaster 5.1 does not support stereo


Cakewalk has it's own control panel to select output buses. Consult the software manual. Also make sure you have the correct ASIO (Audio Stream IN OUT) driver for your sound card. You can most likely find this at www.soundblaster.com -Keep in mind that sound blasters were not made for pro audio applications. Consider investing in a better sound card if you really want to take your music to the next level. Good luck!

Seems to only play in Mono


Karen - Is it only the FM section that is giging you trouble? Does Stereo work for the other inputs - VCR/DVD/Turntable?
Is that stereo button ONLY for the FM section?
