Hello all, it is me again. This time with more music trouble. I'm trying to make some music usable in-game, but the MP3 is mono. Is there any way Audacity can change from mono to stereo? I haven't found it. Does anyone know if that;s possible? Thanks! EDIT: Here's the music. Don't worry, I got it from a disk that I bought.

If you use the 'Save As' option, it should be one of the format parameters on the save screen....


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

Yes, but is there an option to switch between mono and stereo?

Yes, of course there is.

Formats, however, are decided when you're actually saving the file. Mono/stereo is part of the file format - hence why I suggested checking the Save As screen. That's where such options are located in every editor I've ever used for audio and video.

Just add a copy of the track in Audacity, select all and change the parameter to stereo I think. I'm not sure, put it's something really easy.

If it's only that clip you're needing in stereo, there's a better way (since you'll get true stereo and better quality all along). Go download this file: "Music Update Patch, Knights of the Old Republic 2 Downloads, Knights of the Old Republic 2 Patches", then extract mus_bat_400.wav from that archive, rename it to .mp3, open it in audacity, and export it in the quality you want (I don't know if the original files from the archive are recognized by the jk2/3 engines).

EDIT: Uhm, I'm wondering, since this sound package has been made publicly available by Obsidian/Lucasarts, would it be legal to use them in JK2/3 mods (non-commercial, of course - goes without saying)?
