default recording settings

I’ve noticed that if I set the recording type (ie mono/stereo/stereo (2x mono) in the recording VU meter and then set the recording channel (ie red dot) on the individual channel, my recording reverts back to stereo (2 mono tracks) but at half the sample rate (ie sounds like a chipmunk on play back). If I set the red dot on the indiviual channel then setup the VU meter it all works.

Can I set mono to be my default? Anyone else have this problem?

I’m using the 4.2.1
