Zoom F6: recording with stereo mic

Post by cmkinsella »

Hi - I recently did an outdoor recording with the Zoom F6 and audio Technical BP4025 stereo mic. However, when I loaded the file into ProTools, the recording was in mono (a stereo track with identical L & R channels). I used 32-bit Float.

And advice on how to set it up to record stereo properly?

Many thanks!

I suspect you've imported the stereo mix track, but failed to set the mix pan controls fully left and right on the F6.

You should have the original left and right iso channel (individual source) tracks available to import.
