I cannot find a way in Bitwig to split a stereo L/R audio to dual mono L/R tracks. Specifically, split the original stereo audio between L and R and create a mono track of each. This is not the same as duplicate tracks hard-panned L and R. I want to treat each L and R track differently with compression, EQ, etc. I've seen this done easily in Pro Tools. Does anyone know a way to do this in Bitwig? Thanks in advance.

There's quite a few ways on how to achieve that. I'd suggest to try this rather simple one:

  • Add an FX Layer
  • Add two chains in there, one for each channel
  • Beginn chains with a tool so you only affect left or right signal

We also offer a Mid/Side splitter.

Thanks for the answer. So in using a Tool in the beginning of each chain, is the idea to set the Pan control to R or L on each?

Is there a solution for that? I have a stereo track where there is a guitar on the left channel and drums on the right. I want to split the two channels to two separete tracks with "fake" stereo meaning the former L to L/R and the former R to L/R. I could not figure out how to achieve that. I panned the original track left and right and made recording to two new audio tracks. Then I had real mono files that only carried the information on the left or the right channel. I do not know how to make them "fake" stereo now.

OK using tool helps but strangely if you put width to 100 the volume on the left and right channel does not match. So in my case i had to use the pan knob to level the volume of the two channels. After bouncing behind tool to a new track i ended up with the "fake" stereo track form the original left side information of the stereo file.

OK, I figured it´s wrong to widen the stereo image. Just leave tool with width setting at 0 and you have your "fake" stereo.
