Goniometer and Hardware Inputs? [SOLVED]


Recommended Posts

Recently, I have been using a Goniometer to test some of the "stereo" feeds into my system. And, according to the readings, many of these signals are more mono compatible then I had believed in the past. Should I plug these instruments in as mono and record them to mono tracks? Thanks, CS.

No, if the instruments have stereo outputs you most likely want to record them to stereo tracks, however subtle the differences between L and R may be (a highly mono-compatible signal is one where the L and R signals are very similar). Those differences may give an instrument realism, width, dimension, motion, clarity etc... so if you want to keep those attributes, record the instrument on a stereo track. You can always change your mind later and click the format button on the channel strip (below the meter) to make it mono, whereas if you record the instrument to a mono track you'll be stuck and unable to go back to the stereo signal.
