RE: Record using stereo or mono or what?
I guess there's no "proper method" - it's whatever suits you.
But if your soundcard supports paired inputs, you could, if you prefer, select a stereo paired input and record to a stereo wave file rather than record as two separate mono tracks. It's up to you.
