I've got an Alesis iO2 Express and a Samson c01 mic plugged into my Mac. The Alesis provides two channels of input, one for each of the mic inputs available on the device. If you plug the mic into the left input, you get sound through the left channel only, and similarly right channel audio for the right input.
Is it possible to force the input device to only provide one channel of audio, regardless of which input socket I use? I'm recording with one mic, so I don't want the sound to only come out of one channel.
I've tried looking in the 'Audio MIDI setup' utility, but it reports that the device is using two channels and there is no option available to change it to one.
If I use Audacity to record audio, I can force the recording to one channel. This would work fine, but I actually need to record via QuickTime, so I'm still stuck with one channel of audio (unless I always record audio separately in Audacity). Are there any other settings or apps which can force the device to one channel of audio?
Any help with this appreciated
