    Input problem PLEASE HELP!
    I'm using an M-audio firewire 410 to record in logic express on my macbook and I'm having trouble with the inputs. whenever I enable record on the track, I'm only getting sound out of the left speaker. I tried panning the volume towards the right but then i just lose sound completely. Even when I switch the output to the right speaker I'm still just getting sound through the left speaker. Please help me out! Thanks in advance.

    Hi JD, I guess this has nothing to do with Logic Ex (does it work playing songs in Itunes?). You could check your speakers connection (try exchanging cables), right speaker itself (are they active or passive?) or even M-Audio 410 output. I also have this interface and you can use different outputs to figure out what problem you have. You could use outputs 3-4, for instance. Don't forget to assign 3-4 output in Logic channel strip. Check out your panning in Logic also. Good luck!

    Is this only when monitoring the input ? Does the stereo playback of the song sounds fine ?

    I have the same problem even when I play back what I recorded. I'm only getting sound out of the left speaker....I have tried out the different outputs too...no dice. I'm just using a set of logitech computer speakers so I can't plug in each speaker directly into each of the outputs. So I have both plugged into output 1....is this where my problem lies? If I put my ear right up to the right speaker I can BARELY and FAINTLY hear the guitar in the background. And I tried messing around with the panning too....I just lose sound completely.

    Hi JD I don't understand how you get your right channel working without plugging in output 2 from M-Audio 410. Do the Logitech speakers work with a mini stereo jack? I would try connecting it straight to one of the headphone outputs. Have you tried before? Make sure you get signal assigned in the Firewire 410 audio interface control panel. Greetings.
