    Up to now, I've been using Logic Pro X 10.0.7 to record MIDI and work with samples.

    Now I need to record audio.

    I plugged a mic into my Komplete Audio 6 and after recording I discovered that I had a mono signal that I couldn't pan.

    I need to pan the audio and I can't afford a new interface costing tons of $s (assuming that I need a new one.)

    Most mics only record in mono.

    Depending on what you're recording it's best to double track and then pan that (pan 1 mono track left, 1 mono track right).

    Alternatively you can use a plugins to get a stereo effect.

    It's not the interface, it's the recording. Record it again and stereo mic it (2 mics, 2 tracks) and you'll be able to pan the tracks.

    Alternatively, you could duplicate the track, use different effects on each and pan them. At least this would let you create the space you're looking for. Recutting would be the right way to do it though.
