[Solved] Stereo to mono - keep only left channel

Hi.

I guess the subject covers the problem. I want to make a mono sound from a stereo wave file. But I only want to save the sound from left channel. Any sound from right channel should be removed.


Thanks

Select "Split Stereo to Mono" from the Track Drop-down Menu, then delete the lower of the two resulting mono tracks.

Thank you :D

Can't imagine I've spend that long time fiddling in the menus, and it's that simple :oops: :mrgreen:
