USBPre Audio Settings in Windows Vista

Q: I am running Windows Vista on my home computer. After installing the drivers that came with the installation CD, I am only getting one channel from my USBPre. Am I missing something?

A: Windows Vista does not allow our software to change the default audio settings of the operating system, so this change should help you:

  • Navigate the path Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Sound.
  • In the new window, select the tab titled “Recording”.
  • Choose the list item titled “Microphone USBPre Hardware”.
  • Select “Properties”.
  • In the new window, select the tab titled “Advanced”.
  • In the drop down list set the channel count, bit depth, and sample rate to “2 Channel, 24 bit, 48000 Hz (Studio Quality)”.
  • Select “OK”.

You should now have both channels of audio . If you are only getting one channel you may need to restart your computer.
