When I record from my Bass..I hear Mono only

As said in the subject, after recording from my bass, I hear only mono from the phones, could this be because of the cable? or is there any settings I should take care of?

Re: When I record from my Bass..I hear Mono only

Unless you bass is a stero model... and there are only very few out there that are, then you may be using channel setup for stereo use. change it back to a monochannel. but be sure that you also have the output of that channel panned to the center or you will always have left or right output only. Or mono as I assume you are desribing. Hit me back if you want to know more about it.

Bass Guitar Won't Register

The mics I have seen don't have a filter... but a lot of mixers do have a 100Hz mic input filter. Check the other equipment that you are using also.

When I record vocals with stereo setting it always records left more in favour of the right. Is there a way to fix this?

Your microphone is a mono input (one), therefore recording in stereo is not practical. Stereo inputs are left and right (two inputs). Whatever your recording setup or audio workstation, the track you record to from your microphone needs to mono.

When I record and listen to playback, I only hear the left side.

This is normal for recording. Even professionals do the same. What you need is to set your input to mono(either hardware or software), or explore your software look for effects like STEREO to MONO with some delay which I prefer for my recording. I did have a good result. Good Luck

After i record my voice with the microphone, it comes out 1 side

The Samson C01U records in mono, not stereo. This is why you hear sound coming only out of one (the left) channel.

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.

Can not record vocal and guitar at the same time

The monitoring switch should not affect the recording at all. Maybe you have a defective mic?

Does it record from the line input if you set it to Line In mode?

Playback only on left speaker

The quick, easy solution is to change your microphone to mono recording. In the attached YouTube clip, I'll show you how to do that.

The short and simple is to go to your Mac HD -> Applications -> Utilities -> Audio MIDI Setup. Select your C01U USB device, and set it to 1ch 16bit. This will set the microphone to record in mono, equally over both speakers.
