Audio Balance


John W.

Question

I have EMC9, and I’m using Sound Editor to capture audio from the Line-In. I am only getting the left channel. I have checked and verified cables are okay. How do I capture both left & right channel?

 

Thanks,

John W.

Thanks, I'm doing just that for my lectures, where stereo doesn't really apply. I'm waiting for someone to give me a clue for capturing both left & right (stereo). - John W.

 

Where are you capturing the audio from? Make sure you have both left and right channels from your source to a stereo plug that is connected to your speaker. You can tell if you have a stereo plug if it has a band (usually black) about half way up the pin. If the source i not true stereo such as from a camcorder, you already have your answer.

 

All bets are off if you are using the Mic input (you said you were not doing this.)

Check in the Windows Volume control, see if Line in is balanced between right and left, or maybe shifted over fully to right?

 

If you haven't got a shortcut to the Windows volume control, it is

%SystemRoot%\system32\sndvol32.exe [%SystemRoot%=C:\Windows for a default install of the OS]

If it isn't showing line in when you open it, click options properties, select playback and check line in

 

PS You can also adjust the R/L balance in easy audio capture, but on my system, at least that is for Analog mix, which includes line in, but also other channels and it does not balance line in specifically, so if line in is not balanced in Windows volume control, changing the balance only in easy audio capture will not change that.

1 band is mono, 2 bands is stereo

Just in case your issue does not get resolved, you may want to copy the left channel audio to play on both channels.

 

To apply one audio channel to both channels, choose "Right on both" or "Left on both" for channel control in the Input section of the Clip Properties dialog box. This is done in Sound Editor.

 

To change the channels of a stereo signal:

  1. In the Project View area, right-click the audio clip for which you want to change the channels, and choose Clip Properties.
  2. In the Clip Properties dialog box, click Channel control, and choose an option. The options allow you to determine how the left and right stereo channels are played back.
