I have been transferring old tapes to mp3 by connecting my cassette deck stereo output to my pc microphone slot. I record this using audacity and convert from wav to mp3 using dbpoweramp. The results are fine but only for mono recordings. Any stereo recordings appear to be mono but in both channels.
Is it because my pc microphone is only mono? My connections definitely have both channels from the cassette deck.
If this is the problem, can anybody advise me on how I can transfer these stereo recordings to mp3? I don't have that many so I don't really want to spend a lot on new hardware.
