Question about Lexicon Lambda Usb Desktop Recording Interface Sound Card
Lexicon Lambda has only one bus output consisting of two discrete channels which are left and right.
If you are plugging your guitar into the mini TRS line input on your PC the unbalanced guitar signal will be physically connected to both channels of your input bus which is why the audio signal is recorded to both left and right tracks in cool edit.
This however is not true stereo as the left and right signal is from the one orignal mono guitar input signal.
If you want to record your guitar in stereo without an amplifier and two microphones, you will need a guitar effects processor or amp simulator which has stereo outputs which you can then plug into your lambdas line level inputs and record to a stereo track.
alternatively you can acheive similar if not better results by recording your guitar in mono and then duplicating the recorded guitar track. once you have two identical mono guitar tracks you can pan the first track hard left and the duplicate hard right.
At this point you just have what you were originally getting by plugging into your PC. However if you now zoom in and click and drag the duplicated track forward any where between 10 and 15 milliseconds it will give a continuously variable phase difference between left and right signals which can be fine tuned to give a pretty impressive stereo effect.
Give this psycho acoustic trick a go on acoustic guitar or vocals and if you follow my instuctions you will be pleased with the results

This has to do with what you are recording. Is this a recorded sound from a guitar? if so then your problem can be fixed by simply making sure the guitar is in a mono imput BEFORE you record
