I have a project, approximately 7 minutes total, that has 5 damaged files. The result is that in 5 places, one of the stereo channels is missing, sometimes it’s the right channel, sometimes the left.
Is there a way to copy one channel and paste it into the other to repair the stereo?
I am using audacity 2.0.6 that I installed with .dmg on macbook air, 10.12.2
Thanks for your help!

Steve made a plugin to do that …

There’s also the “Channel Mixer” effect that allows you (amongst other things) to copy one channel to the other. See:
For repairing small sections, the “Repair Channel” plug-in is probably the better option.
For copying one channel from an entire track, the “Channel Mixer” may be better.

I just noticed that kerrilake’s screengrab includes this …
I’ve never seen a message like that (fortunately).
From the screengrab of the waveform, they don’t have enough data to make a continuous recording, ( i.e. without gaps ).
Thank you for the input! I ended up converting stereo to mono, and that created a congruent track - which was actually a blessing in disguise, because it turns out that ACX prefers a mono track. Apparently it’s easier to convert to various formats. Who knew??
The stereo tracks are still damaged, and unless one track can be copied to the other, I think they will remain damaged.
Happy New Year Friends!
