Stereo clip or track to two mono tracks, AND ...

Recommended Posts

I'm baffled.  I want to split a simple stereo clip or track into to mono tracks with a command.  No such thing?

Sure I can duplicate, pan, then bounce and make mono.  But how do I then combine them into one stereo track again?

Very odd this doesn't have a one-click split and one-click combine of two tracks.

And dragging two mono tracks into separate take lanes in a new track never let's you bounce, after panning, into one main stereo clip as Anderton advised in 2017 with Sonar.  What changed?

Bounce to Track(s)  with Channel Format set to "Split Mono" creates 2 mono tracks from a stereo track. There are a variety of other options in the dialog for other scenarios.

If I need to split stereo file to two mono, or combine 2 mono into single stereo file, I can do it very easily in Wavelab. But, sure I'd wish to have one-click split/combine in Cakewalk, it's just such a fundamental task in audio editing.

Thank you, Scook.  Works fine for splitting a stereo track into separate mono tracks.  Doesn't work for taking two monos and combining them into a stereo track, unfortunately.  But hey, I wasn't even aware of the BtoT option in the first place!

Assuming you have the tracks already routed to the master bus, solo the two mono tracks track to bounce with the master bus as the source

Excellent.  It worked fine.  Thank you very much, good Scook.  Very appreciated.
