MacMost Now 177: Setting Up a One Channel Microphone

Often when you plug in a single-channel microphone you will only get sound in the left or right channel. Here is how to set it up so that the sound goes into both channels.

    Hi Gary,

    this tool you presented sound very interesting.

    But I have one question:
    In Windows you have the ability to mix the sound "what you hear" with the signal of the mic.

    I didn't find this function on the mac.
    I often make recordings with music and voice on a website. But with my mac i cannot mix the signals, so that the music only comes through the mic what doesn't sound very good.

    Maybe you have a solution for me. Would be nice to hear from you.

    I'm writing from Germany, so please excuse my baaaad english :-)

    Not sure about what you are trying to do. Are you trying to mix sounds to create music or a soundtrack? Then GarageBand is an application that does exactly that.

    Hello Gary,

    I bought the iMic and Audio-Technica Lavalier described in your videos. I plugged in and followed the instructions on the Audio Midi setup and still on one channel is being recorded and output. Any suggestions?

      No suggestions other than to try again -- play around with the settings.
