Converting hard-panned audio file to center-panned one

  • Live Versions: 1 - 9
  • Operating System: ALL


Live's Utility audio effect can convert a hard-panned audio file (playing out of one speaker only) to a center-panned one (playing out of both speakers).


  • Add a Utility audio effect to the audio track containing the hard-panned audio file.
  • In Utility´s Channel Mode menu, select “Left” or “Right” so the audio plays back through both speakers.
  • Use the “Freeze Track” then the “Flatten Track” - commands from the Edit menu to create a new center-panned audio file.
