  2. Microphone is Mono but Sound is Stereo

    Hi!

    So I have a microphone that I use for gaming with friends and recording videos, but the problem is that the Microphone is Mono! (Blue Spark) The problem isn't the output, the problem is that the settings won't let me use the Mic in mono settings. It is always
    set to two channels and won't let the Microphone record on both sides, only the left.

    Is there a way to change the input so that it records mono for my mic?

    Mono audio (ease of access) plus Listen to Microphone (audio control)

    I wish to have my Windows 10 (20H2) machine listen to microphone (relay audio from sound input device to sound output device) and be in Mono audio mode (combine left and right input sound streams and send the combined result to both left and right output sound stream) at start-up.

    The "Turn on Mono" setting does not appear to take effect until after an (any?) application using windows sound is started. The "listen to microphone" setting IS in effect at start-up (however, the audio flow is still stereo, which is not intended.)

    Here is the step-by-step:

    1. Start Windows 10, no audio-based application running
    2. Ease of Access > Audio > Turn on Mono
    3. Sound Control Panel > Recording > (double click on) Microphone > Listen > [x] Listen to this Device

    4. Reboot.

    5. At this point, the "Turn on Mono" setting does not appear to be in effect (left and right audio channels are still distinct)

    6. Start (any) windows sound application

    7. At this point, the "Turn on Mono" setting DOES appear to be in effect (left and right channels are merged at input, and the merged audio is presented to both left and right audio outputs)

    8. Stop the windows sound application

    9. At this point, the "Turn on Mono" setting DOES appear to be in effect (left and right channels are merged at input, and the merged audio is presented to both left and right audio outputs)

    Repeatable beginning at step 4.

    I imagine this is not intended behavior, and I'm wondering if it's an oversight in Windows 10?

    Thanks for any advice or attempts to duplicate this sequence.

    Dave

    windows convert microphone to mono

    Is your Mic actually a mono mic or is it some kind of special mic that is supposed to be stereo? If you bought a mono mic, Windows will make it be mono.
