I have a minor recording problem. And I think I've amateurly fixed it! :D
My laptop's internal microphone records in real stereo. But the plugged-in external mic records in fake stereo. I don't really know the politically-correct term, so i'm just making things up :D.
- Real stereo: Left & right channel records simultaneously.
- Fake stereo: Only one channel records.
Lucky there's a function in Audacity that solves this problem. The function changes the track from Stereo (my fake stereo as shown in Pic 1) to Mono.
1. Make a fake stereo recording. It will sound something like Sound 1.
2. On the toolbar, click Tracks > Stereo Track to Mono, as shown in Pic 2. Pic 3 shows the track changed by Audacity's said function.
The sound file shown in Pic 1 and Pic 3 are in Zip 1 file. Feel free to try it out.
Can't seem to upload Sound 2 file. The Sound 2 (fake mono) track is available in Zip 1.
Sound 2 - Fake mono track -- converted from the fake stereo track.
