FIREWIRE SOLO SOUND FROM LEFT SPEAKER ONLY

I JUST BOUGHT A NEW FIREWIRE SOLO, AND SOUND ONLY COMES FROM THE LEFT CHANNEL WHILE RECORDING. THIS MAKES IT VERY HARD TO HEAR YOURSELF. I'VE FIGURED OUT HOW TO RECORD IN BOTH CHANNELS BY SWITCHING MY COOL EDIT PRO RECORDING SETTINGS TO RECORD FROM LEFT CHANNEL ONLY. THIS ENABLES ME TO PLAY THE RECORDING BACK IN STEREO BUT WHILE I'M RECORDING, I ONLY GET SOUND FROM MY LEFT. SOMEONE HELP!

Mic stands for standing singer or sitting speaker

Forums

Just getting started but trying not to waste any money.

I'm looking at K&M mic stands. Should I be going for a fixed or telescopic boom? Shorter stand and longer boom or the other way round?

The specifications of the models I'm considering are as follows:

API ADVICE

I'm interested in buying some api mic preamps for recording drums, guitars, and vocals. I recently used the 3124 unit on drums and was quite happy with the results. Before I make my purchase, I'm wondering if anybody out there can educate me about the characteristics/applications/history of other api mic preamps?
Also, what are some examples of the famed "LA sound".

Main Vocals... Stereo or Mono? URGENT HELP NEEDED! THANKS :)

Forums

Hey guys, noobie here...and noobie question for you.

Should main vocals be stereo or mono in a mix? My voice sounds so much better when it is in stereo...especially with headphones. but when I play the song on speakers, my voice sounds a little hollow. What do you guys suggest?

Is it a problem with my reverb or do I have to make it mono?

Help with soundcard settings?

First post. Woohoo. :D

Anyways...

I have an HP laptop (DV4000) with a Soundmax sound card. I'm using Adobe Audition 1.5, and a small Yamaha mixer, with the "Rec Out" of the board plugged into the mic input on the laptop. I know, not the greatest, but I use it to record basic tracks when they pop into my head so I won't forget 'em.
