  • Question about using multiple stereo y-splitters with dual inputs

    I'm wondering if it would be possible to record 2 individual stereo tracks using 2 y-splitter cables into 2 individual inputs, resulting in 4 individual mono tracks recorded. I'm using a Steinberg CS1 to record my tracks, and that individually can record a split stereo track which can then be split in Audacity. If it is possible to do this resulting in 4 tracks, how would I go about doing this? What programs would I use? Any help is much appreciated!

    I've never heard of your interface.  If it is 2 channel, you will be able to record either two mono tracks or one stereo track.  What you describe is going to result in two mono channels containing two poorly submixed tracks each. You will not be able to split it out into 4 separate tracks.  Again, I'm assuming you have a two channel interface.

        use active splitters, 

         otherwise is causes signal degradation
