Hi, I am having a problem with my songs only playing in mono out when using my audio box usb.

However when I plug my boss GT-1 into the computer it plays back the songs nicely in stereo (which is what I want the Audio box to do too).

I am using the headphone jack output on Audiobox usb if that makes any difference.

I am using Studio 1 and the system is running on Windows 10 64 bit if that makes any difference.

any help would be nice, thanks.

Usually this is due to recording and or monitoring via a mono track inside of Studio One. You would need to use a " Y " cable to split the signal from the pedal into both inputs on the AudioBox as well as set up your tracks in Studio One to record in Stereo.

I have the same problem. I was listening to my monitors and it was in stereo. I plugged in my headphones in the back of my Audiobox USB96, and the were Mono. Never had this problem ever. The suggestion was to use a "Y" cable, but why? Studio One is not running and I have not used it for a week. I just updated S.O. 5 to 5.2. Would this cause the problem? I really wanted to check out my new BD 770 Pro, and now I can't. Plugging it straight into the laptop does not provide the impedance I want.
