Mix down to mono
« on: April 19, 2017, 01:11:46 pm »
I've only recently bought Vinyl Studio so this may be a newbie mistake, but on at least two occasions now, "Mix down to mono" has become selected and remained as the default option until I spotted it. I've never knowingly selected it - is it picking it up for the discogs tracklist info? I've worked backwards through my entries and reset the ones I've found to stereo (apart from the very few which should be mono) but I'm concerned I may have missed some. Is there an easy way to check all 200 or so albums I've done to see which are mono?

I'm working on a Microsoft Surface running Windows 10.

There isn't, no, sorry.  But the way this gets set initially is via a checkbox in the Record window when creating the album, so ensure that that isn't checked and you should be OK for future albums.

Thanks, I'll watch out for that. Once set, it does seem to persist as the default setting for all subsequent recordings - could I suggest that be undone in a future release? Though by then Ill have digitised them all anyway ;-)

Maybe.  I'll give it some thought.

I would strongly urge you to enable the user to set reset the default setting to "stereo".   I saved one song as mono, and now I must uncheck "mono" every time I want to save an album in stereo.  [Perhaps, I've missed an option for defining the default.]  Please tell me how I can avoid inadvertently recording in mono.

Hi,

Just uncheck it when you next record an album.  That resets the default.  Also, it resets (to stereo) if you stop and restart the program (because people were often forgetting and leaving it on by mistake).

To get this behaviour, make sure you have  VinylStudio 9:

Also, thanks for raising this as there is still a minor bug in that logic which we will fix in the next few days.
