frustrated. I'm having trouble importing(exporting?) files from my 8 track to my computer. It's a Fostex MR8-HD. I record songs and mix them right on the 8 track, and they sound great and perfect, but when i plug that 8 track into the computer with the USB cable and transport the file, the song's quality goes down about 80%, and the audio seems to switch from stereo to mono. This has always been a problem. I decided to try something new, so, I have a Yamaha USB mixing studio, and I plugged the Fostex into the Yamaha and equalized everything so it sounded right. Then, I plugged the Yamaha into the computer using a USB cable and tried again. I had the same problem. I tried yet AGAIN by instead plugging the Yamaha into the microphone jack with a stereo to 1/8 cable. Again, it's just not working out for me. I should probably say that I'm using Audacity, and I'm not sure if that's the best program to use for what I'm doing. When I try to record directly to audacity through the USB or 1/8 cable, audacity shows that only the left channel is picking up anything(which I'm assuming is because left is mono by default. I have a feeling I could be plugging the cables into the wrong places. the cables from my 8Track are labeled "Stereo Out", and I'm just plugging them into the 3rd Input on the Mixer(maybe I should plug them into separate inputs). My stereo cables are in the mixer where it says "REC OUT". So I suppose all I want to know is if there's any way to move the song on my 8 track to my computer and keep the sound quality and the panning and the whole thing all the same. I took some pictures so you can see what I'm set up like. If you have any questions about making something clearer please ask, I need help and I'm desperate.
