Sound menu > Properties > Channels > Mono or Stereo

> Left Channel

> Right Channel

 

(Alternatively, you can right click on a clip to bring this up.)

 

Choose "Stereo/Mono", "Left Channel" or "Right Channel".

 

The sound clip will display "[Left Channel]" on its title area if it is only playing the left channel and it will display "[Right Channel]" on its title area if it is playing the right channel.

 

hmtoggle_arrow1 Phase

 

The phase lets you invert the signal of the left, right or both channels.

 

Sound menu > Properties > Phase > Normal

> Invert Left Channel Only

> Invert Right Channel Only

> Invert Both Channels

 

hmtoggle_arrow1 Normalize

 

Normalizing a sound finds its largest peak or signal in it.  It calculates the percentage needed to be at the maximum amount and then scales everything by the same amount.
