So I don't know if this would be the right place to post this (or the right website for that matter) but hopefully someone might know enough. I recently set up my computer to record and play my guitar through the speakers using a Line 6 POD. The POD has a 1/4 inch left and right output so I bought a patch cable to attach it to a 2 female quarter inch to male eighth inch adapter and then plug into the line in on my sound card.
Have I lost you
Anyway. I had everything set up perfectly and my guitar was in stereo. I have a creative sound system that has a little volume adjuster that has the headphone jack on it. Now all of a sudden, I can't get my guitar in stereo anymore. I can get everything else in stereo (music, system sounds, etc.) and I know its stereo because some of my music has different parts written for the left and right channels and I can hear them in each ear. When I play the guitar, its just in one ear. The headphones have a switch that can go from Mono to Stereo and when I have it on Mono, it plays in both ears, but then my music only plays the left channel. I know its really confusing and some of the whole setup might not be computer related but I'm really lost. I went into options for the sound card but can't get anything. Thanks for any help. And if you can point me in a better direction/forum that would also be appreciated.
