I am recording with the Sony PCM-M10 using the RE50N/D-B mic with an XLR to 1/8" cable. This creates a stereo file. I've previously tried mixing this down to mono, but the L and R channels seem to be in antiphase, and so they cancel out.
Easy solution: leave in stereo? BUT: this is for a podcast which is listened to on a number of devices, and lots of small speakers (e.g. phone/laptop speakers) seem to work by effectively combing L and R signals. So listening through these devices leaves us with silence where the M10's audio should be.
One solution could be to just take the L signal. But we only use this combination for recording occasionally, so this could be easy to forget.
Is there any way to change the recording setup (e.g. cable, setting on the M10, etc) to avoid this anti-phase recording in the first place?
Many thanks in advance.
