I can't wrap my head around this. I'm not a musician, I'm just trying to record songs off of old LP records, and there seems to be no option to produce stereo files. Everything is mono.

Yes, I've seen the YouTube video that shows the 13-step procedure for merging mono tracks into stereo, but it fails in the end with the message "No audio tracks found that end with .L or .R" -- or something like that. So I'm stuck, and Audacity is looking mighty intuitive by comparison...

Just create a new stereo track and record the audio to it.

If you need to learn how to setup your audio card inputs to record both stereo or mono sources, read the "Set Up Your Audio Device" section of the manual.

Hope that helps.

Well, the hardware works fine (AudioBox 22VSL). I can successfully do everything that I want using Audacity -- I figured that out in about 10 minutes. But so far it's looking like the guy at the music store who said Studio One is "easy" and "well-suited to recording music off of LPs" was wrong on both counts. The software came with the 22VSL, so I'm kind of stuck with it and its incurable case of Mono.

Not really. He probably just expected you to at least peek at the software manual as most commercial workstations are a good bit more complex and powerful than freeware like Audacity.

Manual Section 4.6.1 - Song Templates.

All of the PreSonus audio hardware devices will setup automatically in Studio One with their included song templates. Load the 22 VSL song template.

Some other manual sections to look over are....

4.2. Setup Your Audio Device
4.3.2 Audio I/O Setup
5.1.1 Creating an Audio Track

Hope that helps.

1. Make sure your Audiobox is selected as your audio device in the menu Studio One>Options>Audio Setup

2. Press the "T" button on your keyboard and a menu will pop up asking what type of track you want to add. Make sure the "type" is set to audio, the "format" to stereo and the input set as "Input L+R". Click ok and your stereo track should have been made.

3. Arm the track and press record. It should be recording as a stereo track.

If you look at the track that was created just below the arm/monitor buttons, you should see an infinity symbol. The infinity symbol means that it is a stereo track. If you click the infinity symbol it will become a single circle, which means that it is now a mono track (1 input).
