Chapter 4. Recording Audio > Recording Stereo Tracks

Recording Stereo Tracks

The mechanisms for recording stereo tracks are the same as those for recording mono tracks, but to record in stereo you need to have a stereo track, and you need to select a stereo input for recording. Remember that when you create tracks, they are defined as mono or stereo tracks. Stereo tracks can use only stereo inputs, while mono tracks can use mono inputs or one side of a stereo input.

To record stereo tracks

1.
Select the stereo track.

The Track list displays the type of track. Figure 4.25 shows two tracks selected. Above the pointer on the upper track, the word Mono shows that it is a mono track, while the track below is a stereo track.

Figure 4.25. Mono and stereo tracks are named clearly in the track list.


2.
Set the input selector for the stereo pair that you want to record (Figure 4.26).

Figure 4.26. Only a stereo pair can be selected for input on a stereo track.


3.
Click Record on the Transport bar.

The track will turn red to indicate that it's recording.

4.
When you're finished recording, click Stop on the Transport bar.
