Microphone and other sound only on left channel, and need assistance using Loopback to fix it

I posted something about my SoundCraft Mixer about a month ago, but it seems I didn’t get a reply. Basically, I am trying to fix my soundcraft 12mtk, so I have my microphone rooted correctly instead on right or left channel, depending how the headphones are positioned. Everything else is on one channel, so I can’t get it in stereo. I posted another one about this about 2 months ago, and I got a reply from Mike. This is what he said, but I need more clarification on the last part. I put his reply in quotes.
“It’s likely you’re using channel 1 for a microphone. You’ll find it the case that much software uses channels 1 and 2 by default so this will put channel 1 (your mic) on the left and whatever is on channel 2 on the right channel. You can certainly get around this using Loopback and routing channel 1 to a brand new audio input on both left and right channels.”
My question is how do I route channel 1 to a brand new audio input on both left and right channels, and fix the part so I can get stereo for games that I am playing? Please let me know ASAP. :slight_smile: Have a good day and stay safe everyone.

Thanks for asking this @TechPianoPlayerKid.

When you’re using Loopback you’d create a New Vitrual Audio Device and simply connect channel 1 from your Soundcraft Sigature 12 MTK desk to the stereo output twice. Once to the left channel and second time to the right channel on your new virtual audio device.

What Mike says is true. Loopback is amazing. Here’s my crazy setup on my laptop.
