Applies to: All audio interfaces
Cakewalk / Sonar lists inputs and outputs in stereo pairs. As such, you will not be able to see each individual input and output when configuring your setup in the Edit > Preferences > > Devices > Audio menu.
By default, you will be able to select each individual mono input when selecting the I/O for a particular track, though only stereo outputs.
In the above example, the input currently selected on the audio track is "Stereo Focusrite USB ASIO Input 1" which is actually representative of inputs 1 and 2 on the Focusrite device. In this example, to select a mono input, you would need to select "Left Focusrite USB ASIO Input 1" to only use input 1 on the track, or select "Right Focusrite USB ASIO Input 1" to use input 2.
If you have a device with more than two inputs, the same logic applies. For example, to use input 3 you would need to select the Left input 3 option in Cakewalk, and to record using input 4 you would need to select Right input 3.
You can enable Cakewalk to show mono outputs by ticking the 'Show Mono Outputs' option in the Edit > Preferences > Devices > Audio menu.
The outputs will then show up like this:
To avoid confusion, you can also rename inputs and outputs by double clicking on their name. Ensure that you tick the 'Show Friendly Names' tickbox to enable this.
