Microkorg comes out only in left

Post by BoxDJ » Thu Apr 29, 2010 9:38 pm

How can I record the microkorg in stereo. I have a 1/4 inch cable going out from the microkorg into my audio interface.

put utility on the input, set it to mono
does the microkorg only have one 1/4" jack output?



just googled the microkorg, sez it has 2 1/4" outputs
so use 2 jacks into your soundcard

IN your audio interface, if it has some type of console software, set the pan control to C. By default, you usually get channel 1 100% left, channel 2 100% right etc.

example :

Then make sure you set the input selector in Live ext in to 1, not 1/2 which is stereo (unless you connect up the second output and route it through input 2).

You need two cables coming out of your microkorg, one for left, one for right. The select the stereo pair of inputs on your interface as the ext in pair in Live, arm and record.
