I’m very new to home recording. I’m trying to record my bass guitar. I am using Cubase LE 5 with a Tascam US-144 MKII.
I have followed all of the official guidelines for setting up cubase and have looked through pages of threads on forums to try and find the solution.
Heres what I want to do: Record a track for bass guitar (in mono, which i may or may not be doing correctly ). I then want to play it back exactly as it sounded when i recorded it.
My settings on the US-144MKII are as follow: Mon mix set to 12 o’clock, Line out set to 12 o’clock, phones set to 3 o’clock, SIG/OL input left set to 2 o’clock and SIG/OL input right set to 3 o’clock. I have a switch that says Mono - when the switch reads OFF the sound is only coming through the right hand speaker. When I switch Mono ON there is sound in both speakers.
This is whats happening: i start a new project and select the CLE- 4 stereo 8 mono option. I click on stereo 1 at the top. I hit record, i play some bass. I stop it, play it back and the sound is only coming through the right hand speaker.
How can I get the sound to play back through both speakers? There must be a setting somewhere…
I am very new to home recording and any help will be appreciated. Will also provide any necessary info.
