I am not an expert on computers but I am trying to be logical about determining the answer to the above question.
I am trying to use the external microphone jack to record in stereo. From a quick check of the inside of the connector it is seems to have three contacts indicating two channels. Upon reviewing the data sheet of the Analog Devices AD1981B the chip set has both right and left channels for recording.
I have the soundMAX drivers 22.214.171.12424 installed.
In the control panel sound and audio the only thing I can see under the recording option is volume control. The advanced button is there but it is grayed out.
I am wondering if there is a different piece of “software” or drives I need to utilize both channels for recording or is this feature of the chipset not available on the R51. I am not at all familiar with CODECS, is there a different one of these that I need. These seem to be very important for making video and audio programs to function properly.
Any advice or guidance would be appreciated.

I tried to do some research and it looks like you need to have an external device and its drivers, such as an external microphone, installed on the computer to record audio that can be saved as a sound file.
If anyone knows anything different, please let me know.
