Configure audio ports for stereo or mono

The four XLR professional line-level inputs are configured as two stereo pairs by default: XLR A (left and right stereo pair) and XLR B (left and right stereo pair).

Using the Admin panel, you can configure these ports to function as a stereo pair (left/right) or as separate mono ports.

Configure audio ports as stereo or mono using the Admin panel

  1. Login to the Admin panel as admin, see Connect to Admin panel.
  1. From the Inputs menu, click Analog-A Audio for the XLR A ports or click Analog-B Audio for the XLR B ports. The configuration page for the audio ports opens.
  2. Do one of the following.
    1. To make the ports function as a stereo pair, check Stereo pair and click Apply.
    2. To make the ports function as separate mono ports, uncheck Stereo pair and click Apply.

When mono is selected, two sets of parameters and two audio VU meters appear in the interface - one for each audio input port on Pearl-2. Parameters that are listed only once apply to both ports.
