Finding your stereo balance control

All our videos are recorded in stereo – music in the left channel and cues in the right. Youtube doesn’t have a way to adjust the balance, but you can usually do this on your device:

On Windows 7, right click on the speaker icon on the taskbar.  Select “Sounds”.  Click on the “Properties” tab.  Find your device (the little green bar will be moving if you’re listening to something), then right click and select “Properties”.  If your hardware has a balance control, there will be a “levels” tab.  Select that, and you should find the balance control in there somewhere.

On Windows 8 or 10, right click on the speaker icon on the taskbar.  Select “Open Sound settings”.  Under “choose your output device”, find “device properties” and click that.  If your hardware has a balance control, there will be a “levels” tab.  Select that, and you should find the balance control in there somewhere.

Android phones: Stock Android doesn’t come with this feature, so it varies by manufacturer. If you have it, it will likely be under Settings > Accessibility or Settings > Sound. If you can’t find it, you may have to install a third-party app (Google’s own Pixel lacks this feature, for example).

On iPhone, look under Settings > General > Accessibility

On a Macbook, follow these instructions.
