Hi All

Wondering how I can do this...

I have 3 stereo files (wav) that only contain audio on one channel (Right). I'd like to find a way to simply duplicate the sound onto the left channel to create a balanced file. I've been messing around with Audacity, but apparently I'm too dumb to figure this one out on my own.

Any help is appreciated!

If you can't get it to work with Audacity, you might try Reaper (which I -think- is still a free download).

If that doesn't work, I would recommend that you download the trial version of Cubase and try that.
The option you want is Audio/Process/Stereo Flip/ (either "left to stereo", "right to stereo", or "merge", whatever works)

There may be easier paths "out there" to achieve what you need to do.

In audacity copy your mono track. Then simply paste it again by clicking Command+P. Then click on the down arrow by you waveform simply select left for the first track and right for the second track.
