I have a large batch of stereo interview recordings with strong vocal on one channel and mostly noise on the other. I want to strip off the noisy channel and convert the file to mono with just the good channel - and run it as a batch process on all of the files.
I thought I could use the “stereo tool” plugin to do this but the channel attenuation sliders only go to -30dB (not full off). I found the “split stereo to two mono tracks” function but I don’t see a way to run that as a batch process (and I don’t want to keep the bad channel anyway). “Mix to mono” is not right either because it will add the noisy channel to the good channel and the “gain function” doesn’t provide separate left/right channel settings.
This seems like it should be a very simple task - how to do it?
