i have a stereo track that i would like to be mono. when i select the track and use tracks > mix > mix stereo down to mono, it does indeed change the track to mono but it also changes the playback speed to much much faster. i checked the playback speed settings and they were still at the default 1.
i browsed around the web and this forum for answers and couldn’t find anything. any help is appreciated. thanks.
There’s a bug in Audacity 2.4.2. If a stereo track has a different sample rate to the Project Rate, then “Mix Stereo to Mono” will incorrectly resample the audio. To work around the bug, Resample the track to the Project Rate before mixing to mono.
Windows 10 - This happens all the time. All files and project are 44100Hz. Mix down makes the track longer, slower, and lower in pitch. Separating into 2 mono tracks and deleting one is not a good answer. Wouldn’t these be a left track and a right track?? Not necessarily the same??
