This might be a basic issue but its one I have never experienced before with an older interface I recently replaced with a Steinberg UR22 (MK1). I hope you can help because I’ve tried all of the suggestions I found online. The problem is as the title describes: Mono IN Mono Track to Stereo OUT Centered sounds muffled. I have the input busses configured as follows:
MONO Left = UR22 Input 1
MONO Right = UR22 Input 2
–LEFT = UR22 Input 1
–RIGHT = UR22 Input 2
It doesn’t matter if I send the output to a FX track (Stereo), a Group Track (Stereo), or directly to the Stereo Out, the result is the same. What I hear sounds garbled and muffled. If I PAN hard left or hard right it sounds perfect. I can even grab the WAV file from the PC and play it and it sounds perfect. Its just playback in Cubase, when panned dead center, it sounds almost like audio out of phase. Shouldn’t the signal sound like its coming from a phantom center?
