It looks like you're using the AKG C1000S condenser, which can either be powered by phantom power or the onboard 9V battery. Just make sure you're using one or the other. Mic signals are mono, unless you're using a stereo mic. Record in mono, do your final mixdown to stereo if whatever you're creating needs to be in stereo. My question would be, does it really need to be in stereo?Rob.
I'm unfamiliar with how the Zoom records. When you don't use Mono Mix, does it give you a stereo track with only one channel (left or right) of audio? If so, I would assume the Zoom then outputs a stereo track?Regardless, you can deal with just about anything in post. If it outputs a stereo file and you only fill one channel, you can mix that down to a mono signal in post. Or, turn on Mono Mix and see what happens during recording. I would test both scenarios and see which one works best for your situation.Rob.
