I'm not going to buy a mono stylus for my cartridge. I don't even know if they make one. My question however is about the software.

Should I bother setting my software (I have Sound Forge and Audacity) to mono recording? Or should I just record my mono vinyl in stereo and then decide what to do with the 2 channels? There has to be some standard way of recording mono via a stereo stylus.

Thanks for any input!
