Does anyone know of any open source (freeware) software to convert Mono mp3 and wma file to TRUE Stereo?

I have tried Audacity and when I try all I seem to get is 2 channel Mono.
Is there a way of using Audacity to convert Mono to true stereo?

All help much appreciated

Where are you expecting to get the rest of the information to convert the mono into stereo.

When Stereo is converted to mono a part of the information is DELETED and can therefore NOT be put back.

To get true stereo you'd need a source that contains at least that much data - which mono does not.

I believe this youTube track was remixed from a mono single http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UJsvcyfESd8

When I contacted the person who did this, this was the reply:

Re:Mono to Stereo convertion

"I use Adobe Audition.

Unfortunately it is a long learning curve, also not all records can be converted. My stereo Globetrotter was made a long time ago with a lot of cutting and pasting. I literally take the song apart & put it together as two tracks."


Also Adobe Audition is expensive, and I haven't got a clue how to use it.

Anyone any other ideas please, and also how to get the spacial effect so that they don't sound flat?

Sometimes you’ll want to apply stereo processing to a mono audio file. In order to do that you have to convert the audio file from mono to stereo first.

After conversion from Mono to Stereo which I can already do with Audacity, could you please tell me how would I apply STEREO PROCESSING.

Try this :-

To convert mono to stereo sound files, open up the Nero program, go to the "Extras" menu, choose "Encode Files" and then click on the "Add" button to open up a file. Make a mono sound file into a stereo sound file with information from a work flow manager of a software development company in this free video on computers.
