Aud V: 2.1.1
I appreciate this may be a very naive question, so forgive me, but I’ve just been having a play around with an online music pad thing, and used Aud’s record feature to capture my attempts at a tune. The pad is laid out with different buttons (drums, bassline, melody, vocal etc) and you simply hit each one to create a tune.
When I play back the recording in Audacity, and even though it’s recorded it onto a stereo track, there isn’t any actual stereo effect from the speakers (it’s all centered, if you know what I mean). Now I can tell you that there is no stereo effect when using the music pad, either, so it seems pretty obvious that this is what Aud will capture when recording, but I was just wondering if there’s anything I can do, post recording, to separate the various sounds so that I get that clever stereo effect you hear, with certain elements of the song flipping between speakers?
If not, how about if I recorded each of the music pads sounds on different tracks. So, I record the bassline, mute it and hit record again while I play the melody. Then mute that and record the drums - so that I end up with each part on their own track. Would I get the stereo effect then?
FWiW I do understand that strictly speaking, mono would mean the sound was only coming from one speaker. This is not the case, but I’m after that effect you often hear when different elements can be picked out on either the left or right speaker. Maybe it’s called Dynamic Stereo, I dunno.
