There are times when I need to run a loudspeaker measurement program on my Y510. Since the program uses Fourier analysis, it requires two inputs, one for the signal from the device under test and a second as a reference.
The mic input on Y510 seems to be a 'stereo' jack (a 1/8" tip/ring/sleeve jack) but it appears that the tip and ring are paralleled so that I get only one input instead of two. The tip and ring are not shorted together, they seem to be summed somewhere.
I recorded a track from a CD player (with the input gain greatly reduced) to check this (using Audacity) - the result seems to be mono.
Is there a setting I have overlooked? Is a special plug required?
