Unfortunately most portable CD players will not do you any good with a split track CD. i have one that has a balance control on it - that is the key, since the vocals are on one side and the instrumental is on the other. BUT...i have been unable to find another portable CD player with a balance control. the one i have is an Optimus CD 3321 made for Radio shack in the mid 90's - no longer made. Another one that i found that has a balance control is a Koss, but again, it is unavailable from anywhere online and i am waiting to see if i can get one from amazon. split track CD's will work in your car - to isolate either the vocals or the instrumental, simply turn your balance control all the way to the left or to the right.

Califone makes a boombox that has a balance control. They are not cheap, but our church has a couple of them that we use for kids choir where the use of split-track CD's is prevalant. The 2455AV-02 does have a balance control. Other models may as well, but I haven't researched.

An alternative solution: rip the CD to MP3 format (if the tracks are not saved in MP3 format already) using Windows Media Player. Then right-click on the file name (of the ripped MP3) and select Find in Library. Now download Audacity from Import the MP3. It will import as a stereo file. Slide the balance control in Audacity all the way to the left (to isolate the left channel). Then export the file as an MP3. Slide the balance control in Audacity all the way to the right. Then export the file as an MP3. You'll need to download the lame dll to do this. Of course, you may only need one channel isolated. Go back to Windows Media Player and burn the separate files to a writable CD.

How do you fix an mp3 music file if it only plays in one ear phone?

To play through both earphones music has to be either 'Mono' with one track, or 'Stereo' with two tracks. It is possible to save a mono track as a stereo track with only one track. This will make the music only play out of one earphone. You must edit the tracks to turn the music into stereo. Audacity - a free program - can do it. Get Audacity, IMPORT the music and look at the tracks. You can see what it is. Either turn it into a mono track or if there are two tracks, set the volume of both tracks up to where it can be heard. There are volume controls for each track on the left side of each track. Then EXPORT the music as a file you can use. IF you want mp3, you also have to follow the instructions that Audacity will tell you, which is getting some free plug-ins that allow Audacity to convert imported files into mp3.

If you record a audio cassette on a mono cassette duplicator will the sound appear in both left and right speakers of a stereo?

Yes. The cassette was a great step forward in convenience from reel-to-reel audio tape recording, though because of the limitations of the cassette's size and speed, it initially compared poorly in quality. Unlike the 4-track stereo open reel format, the two stereo tracks of each side lie adjacent to each other rather than being interleaved with the tracks of the other side. This permitted monaural cassette players to play stereo recordings "summed" as mono tracks and permitted stereo players to play mono recordings through both speakers. The tape is 3.81 mm (0.150 in) wide, with each stereo track 0.6 mm wide and an unrecorded guard band between each track. The tape moves at 4.76 cm/s (1 7/8 in/s) from left to right.[13] For comparison, the typical open reel format in consumer use was ¼ inch (6.35 mm) wide, each stereo track nominally 1⁄16 inch (1.59 mm) wide, and running at either 9.5 or 19 cm/s (3.75 or 7.5 in/s). ------

What is a split track?

A. Split-track recordings have the instruments and the voices sent to separate speakers. God's Kids Worship CD's have the instruments in the left, and the voices on the right.

Or, you can mix in just enough voice tracks to give your singers confidence to sing out.

Can you convert a midi 0 file to midi 1 file?

Commercial MIDI Files are generally saved as a merged (single track) Format 0 file, where all MIDI channels are merged into a single track. To edit the MIDI File, it is preferable to split each individual MIDI channel to its own track.Format 0 (merged) is the preferred format in keyboard style work stations and older MIDI File players as the data is read faster. Format 1 (split tracks) is generally the preferred type when editing a MIDI File in a program or app.Most commercial sequencing programs like Logic, Sonar, Cubase and so on will automatically split the single merged track into individual MIDI tracks assigned to their specific MIDI channel. These programs can split tracks manually by using the 'demix' or 'split channel' functions. This method can also be reversed where a split Format 1 MIDI File can be merged into a single track (Format 0).In instances where your program cannot split or merge a MIDI FILE, you can download the following programs that will perform this function.For PC: MAC:
