| I have a stereo recording that I want to have in mono, put together
| the two track to one tracks, how doe I doe ???
1 Click on the downward pointing arrow in the track panel (above the
mute/solo buttons) to expose the track dropdown menu
then click "Split Stereo Track"
2 Click on one of the tracks and make mono using the same menu.
3 Close the other track by clicking on [X] on the track panel.
This will obviously have in the mono output only the data from one of
the channels. To include information from both channels in the mono
1 Split stereo track using the track panel dropdown menu
2 Click on both tracks in turn and make each mono
using the same menu
3 Select both tracks (CTRL + A ) and play them, checking
if the red hold lights to left of the playback meters come on,
which indicates clipping (distortion). If this happens,
move the gain slider -......+ (below mute/solo buttons) on each
track to the left by the same amount until no more clipping is
NOTE: if the playback meter is not visible, enable it at Edit >
Preferences > Interface.
4 Click Project > Quick Mix
In the Beta 1.3.x versions of Audacity, just select the track and press
click Project > Stereo to Mono, which mixes in data from both
channels to one mono track without clipping.
