Recording stereo patches from Helix to Garageband

Recommended Posts

I am trying to record using some of the awesome Helix panning effects in Garageband.I am using Helix as the recording interface but Garageband defaults to mono. Does anyone know to get Garageband to record stereo direct from Helix?

 

Thank you,

If tracks "default" to mono, that suggests there should be a way to change it to "stereo". OR, don't accept the default and add a stereo track.

If for any reason you cannot change a single track to stereo or add a stereo track, then you can still do it the old fashion way which is (IMO) the best way. 

  • Setup two mono tracks to record....
  • Set one track to record the Helix LEFT side
  • Set the other track to record the Helix RIGHT side
  • Hard pan each track left/right...
  • Result = stereo

Thank you very much. The link in the first response showed me what I need. A simple answer I just couldn't find it.
