I just bought a TCD-D7 DAT Recorder off of ebay so I could use it in a short film I'll be making (I'm eventually going to find something better to record sound with, I just need this for one short) and when I started to test it out everthing sounded pretty good except that instead of recording in stereo it was only recording the "left side"-I could only hear the sound from the left side of my headphones amd their were no decible readings for the right side.

I tested this with several cheapy mics as well as my Schriber Acoustic Dual-mode shotgun mic (I plugged it directly into the recorder's mic input). I also tested it with several sets of headphones to make sure that I just didn't have a bad pair on. Any idea what the problem might be?

I thought that maybe because I didn't plug the mic into a sound mixing board, that that might be the problem, but no information website has mentioned anything like this so I don't know.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Nevermind, I found the answer.

The answer is that I am very blind!

Turns out none of my mics have a stereo plug. They all have mono plugs.

I have one and have used them on Imax films. They record very good sound.

And that was going to be my advice to you. To check the type of plug.

Have fun.
