Mono when Triton hooked up mixer

I just realized that I haven't been recording in stereo from the Triton. I have a phonic mm1805x mixer and maybe you could tell me what I was doing wrong.

I hooked the outputs of the Triton to the inputs of the Mixer. The mixer inputs say (L mono and R) for 4 channels. I thought it was stereo until I hooked my headphones to the Triton and heard what its supposed to sound like. The only way I could get true stereo through the mixer is hooking it up to the EFX Return. Why is this?

Do I need to hook up the Left on one channel and the right on another?

Also, my Triton has 4 individual outputs. I've never tried messing with those. Should I be using these instead of the basic L R output?

Can't wait for feedback. Take care.

correct. left in one mixer channel, pan it hard left, right an another channel, panned hard right. unless the mixer has stereo channels (pairs of channels already panned as stereo) then you'll want to use those

Okay, that worked. Thank you.

Should I be using any of the other hooks up to? I dont have any external equipment besides the Triton and studio mic, but I will be buying a compressor soon. I'm not going to use the on-board effects of the mixer. So should I be using any of these: AUX RTN, 2T RTN, 2T REC, CTRL RM, GROUP ins and outs, EQ ins and outs?

Also, when I get a compressor, how should I hook that up to the mixer?

If the mixer has inserts on the channels then use them, otherwise the aux send/return will work OK as well.

Or you can just patch the compressor through the main outputs. If your Aux send and returns are post fader, then they'll be useless for compression. If they are Pre-fader than you can use them if you want to, but you'll have to keep the channel fader down all the way and just use the Aux knobs for the levels. If you don't record more than one stereo thing, or two mono things at a time, just put the compressor after the mixer's output, as I mentioned before.
