Can you record L and R onto separate tracks in Cubase 3
      19/01/12 04:18 PM
Hello everyone,

I'm looking to record a friend of mine on Electro Accoustic Guitar, and he's suggested a Line-in and a room mic recording simultaneously. It's a technique I'm sure is used regularly for many instruments. Of course this is simple enough to accomplish using my analogue mixer, but would normally result in a single stereo track on the DAW (running Cubase 3). (My sound card has simple Left and Right analogue inputs). This means I'd have to ensure the balance between the two was perfect before writing the track.

Is there a way of recording two tracks in Cubase simultaneously, perhaps splitting the left and right channels of what would normally be a stereo input, say left for the Line-level signal and Right for Room Mic ?

I know I can achieve it on the mixer using two imputs and the pan controls, but on the DAW ?

Sorry if it's been covered before - I did search the forum first, but to no avail.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can spare the time to help.
