I got a small mixer and am using it for singing and applying some effects. I'm using a single microphone for recording. It's connected to an XLR to the mixer.

Given that I have a mono signal going into the mixer, and there is stereo signal coming out of the mixer (main out of the mixer are 2 XLRs) is it valid to assume that the stereo signals coming out of the mixer are the same?

  • You mean that the L and R channels are the same? – Linuxios Jun 24 '16 at 4:00
  • This might probably work better on Sound Design.SE. – neilfein Jun 24 '16 at 4:55
  • @Linuxios Yup, would that be a more understanding terminology? If so, I would change it – TheMeaningfulEngineer Jun 24 '16 at 6:43

You should be able to assume that L and R are basically the same (within the operating tolerances of the unit) if -

  • The 'Pan' control for the channel is centred
  • You're not using any of the stereo effects
