Stereo is actually two identical amplifiers which when the left and right of a stereo signal is fed into the respective inputs will reproduce the stereo sound through the left and right speakers.
Mostly there is a mono/stereo switch so if only a mono signal is available it is reproduced through both speakers.
You don't make it clear whether the playback is in mono or half a stereo?
If playback is in mono it will emerge from both speakers but the directional element will be absent. If the playback is in half a stereo the sound will emerge from one speaker only or mostly one speaker.
Most common problem is the failure of one of the amplifiers which could be electronic or the failure of any of the various switching usually used in such things.
The amplifiers can be tested by injecting a signal into each amplifier input and will be found satisfactory if the sound emerges from each speaker in turn at a similar volume.
You will need to get a 2.5mm mono to 3.5mm stereo adaptor from somebody like Maplin. The 2.5mm end of this needs to plug into your earphone jack (mono) on your S725. Get a ready made cable with a 3.5mm stereo plug on both ends. Put one of these plugs into your 2.5mm mono to 3.5mm stereo adaptor. Put the other plug of this cable into the AUX input of your PC. If you do not see an AUX 3.5mm input, look in or around the area where you would normally plug your headset. Try checking the manual that came with your PC. Some PCs do not have "AUX" marked on the 3.5mm socket. Be careful not to have the volume level of the S725 too high as you are testing your setup. You might damage the Mic input of your PC if you blast too high a level at it.
Next you will need some software like Audacity (Free) to record your tapes.
Have fun but be careful if you are not sure about the connections. Hope this helps.
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.
Yes, the input is stereo BUT you need to configure Audacity to do the stereo capture. Go to File > Preferences. Once in the preferences dialog, go to the third Drop-down menu, and change from MONO to 2-channel stereo. That is.
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.
press F4 to open device panel. there you must be able to select inputs and out puts fromyour alesis interface.
be in stereo or mono(check your alesis specifications to know how many mono and stereo inputs it has.
then when you create a new track on the right side of the sequencer window. you must see a input and uut put routing tab
so if you whant to record voice in one track select the inputs where your mic is plug
create a new track and select the other input
so for shure it will say alesis INPUT 1
alesis INPUT 2
alesis INPUT 3
and so on depending on how many inputs your devices haves.
you say it haves 2. but
are they 2 only in stereo
or two in mono
or one mono+one moni+one mono+mono
for a total of 4 inputs in mono mode and 2 in stereo mode.
i dont know witch device you have so i cant tell.
if you have any questions let me know
