Before you open an audio track in audacity, open the project menu
then select 'new stereo track' (alt-p, s in Windows), open your
audio track (a .wav file for example), then do a 'quick mix' (alt-
p, q in windows). Then you'll be able to apply a stereo effect such
as phaser. With Echo under the effects menu, it will not turn a
mono-sounding signal (even when it's stereo) into stereo-sounding
audio, but something like the phaser (a built-in effect) or the
Flanger (a Nyquist effect from
http://audacity.sourceforge.net/download/nyquistplugins ) will
create stereo sound when applied to mono-sounding stereo audio.
You can see whether the audio you've got loaded in Audacity is mono
or stereo, it says 'mono' or 'stereo' under the name of your track
or file somewhere on the screen.
Hope that helps.
Subject: SRS 3D stereo effect from mono source
I have mono (single channel) source material to which I would like
to add some stereo "ambiance". I have played with the Echo effect
with some success, but the result is still mono.
My PC has a sound card that has an "SRS 3D Stereo" enhancement
setting that gives exactly the sound I want. It seems to add some
echo, but not identical in the left and right channels.
Does anyone know of a way to get this effect with Audacity?
