When I plug my stereo backing tracks into dual mono or stereo inputs on my desk, some of them sound very tinny and quiet until I unplug one side. Any ideas? Thanks. Mick

  • this is called phase cancellation, check your input settings (look for a button with a symbol that looks like "0" combined with a "/" . And check with another pair of cables.. – Arnoud Traa May 17 '15 at 13:48

The issue you are facing might be caused by a phase inversion between your two stereo channels.

This phase inversion might occur at various points in the chain :

  • The recorded backing track might have a phase inversion
  • The cable used to connect the player to the desk input
  • A phase inversion switch activated on one channel in the desk
