Hi,

 

I have a multitrack session with two mono .wav files in each its channel. I need to export this as one stereo .wav file, with each of the original mono files in each its channel (left and right). How do I do this?

 

 

Thank you!

 

Larilin

    Maybe I'm not understanding the question but wouldn't you just pan track one to the left and track two to the right?

    Then File > Export > Multitrack Mixdown > Entire Session

    On the 'Export Multitrack Mixdown' window select "Change" under 'Mixdown Options'

    Then select "Stereo" under the "Master" dropdown

    'Range' should be set to 'entire session'

    Have you panned your files so one is left and one is right before you mix them down?   If not, both will be central and therefore your stereo will be two identical tracks.

     

    You can go hard left and hard right to get two totally discrete channels or partially L/R for a more subtle effect.

     

    Pan using the knob in the control section at the left end of each track.  L100 equals hard left, R100 equals hard right.

     

    I know you're frustrated but panning tracks is sound mixing 101 and every bit of audio software would need a similar process.

    Are the two files in a Stereo session? If you have opened them into a Mono session then I suspect you cannot Mixdown to Stereo.

    Its really not that hard

    I have attached an animated gif which should help with the settings

     

    I just started a new multitrack session (based on no template) and dragged in two mono files - one on each track

    Then panned each track - one L100 and the other R100 (left & right)

    Then exported the mix as per settings in the gif (click on it to see)

    This is how.gif

    The simple answer to this is not to try to export the file at all, but just do a mixdown. If it's a stereo session, you end up with your two files where you panned them, in a stereo file.
