Record it to a MONO track, not a stereo one.
The software will create the track in the stereo field by itself, no need to create a stereo track initially.
You may be able to convert the stereo track down to a mono track, but I'm not sure about acid, having never used it. Some DAWs do this easily, some don't.
You could render the single track down to a mono track, if you can't convert it. Just pick MONO when you render it, and it should be good. Don't include any other tracks, or it'll be a summed mix, which is not what you'd want.
Only use stereo tracks for things are actually stereo, like some keyboards that have pan delays, chorus, etc. built into them. Also, some drum machines have stereo out, because they have a stereo field built into them.
Also, my guitar processor can output stereo, as it has stereo chorus, delay, phazer/flange in it, so I'd have to connect 2 leads from the processor to 2 inputs on my interface.
But usually I track them MONO, as I'm just using basic stuff when tracking.
hope that helps, and welcome to the HRC.
