I use a stereo input for stereo, I almost never record in mono anymore.
So such a setup is not much use for me. And I set the gain with enough
headroom for what I'm recording. I typically set the Portadisc reading
peaks between -10 & -14. But may set even more headroom in some situations.

If you are having to go to the 2nd channel very often, check your gain
setting technique. As we have discussed you may be setting like analog.
