I have a Steinberg UR22 and Cubase Elements. Win 8.1 Pro.
Total newbie to Cubase and home recording so please bear with me.
I plug my acoustic guitar into channel 2 on the UR22 and record in Cubase, in what sounds like stereo in my headphones, but when I play it back it only comes out the right channel?
Have I got a pan setting wrong here or something? Am I recording in stereo?
Should I be recording in mono to two tracks and then panning one left and one right?
Will I need to use two tracks every time I want to record a guitar part?
Would appreciate some guidance.
So, all of the above was happening when I used the “Empty” project option upon initial opening of Cubase. So, I tried selecting the “Piano and Vocal” template, recorded the guitar on the vocal track and, hey presto, it plays back in Stereo. This has just confused me even more.
Can’t I just select Project > Add Track > Audio in an empty template and have it record properly or is the default, somehow, mono (right side)?
What am I doing wrong and what am I misunderstanding?
