When I play my Matriach through my headphones no problems, but when I record to Logic X through my Focucrite Scarlett, I get a loud left channel and almost nothing on the right channel. All the stereo fx I've set up disappear. Any suggestions? Thanks.
I tried swapping cables, using different inputs on my mixer, and even buying new cables. I found that if I plugged the Matriarch directly into the Scarlett I would get stereo sound. Of course, that takes up those two inputs. Thanks for your reply.
Stereo basically is 2-channel. If you want stereo I believe you are going to have to use both outputs from your synth. If you only plug in the Left out, then you will be mono. I just looked at the manual online (I don't have one myself) - it says that they can both work with TRS cables, but each one is still mono. It's on page 8 of the manual:
With the Matriarch MAIN VOLUME knob turned all the way down, plug one end of a 1/4” (TS) instrument cable into the MAIN OUT LEFT (MONO) jack on the rear panel to monitor the instrument in mono. To monitor the instrument in stereo, connect a second 1/4” (TS) instrument cable to the MAIN OUT RIGHT jack on the rear panel.
NOTE: The MAIN OUT jacks will work with both TS and TRS 1/4” cables.
