The Intelligent Stereo to Mono Action uses Myriad's detailed analysis to calculate the amount of stereo content in stereo files and convert them to mono based on a threshold that you choose. When used in conjunction with Myriad's file and sample rate conversion options, this Action is especially handy when you have to import tracks into a project in your DAW. This saves disk space, reduces CPU and voice usage and helps you be more organized.


The Channel Similarity parameter specifies how similar the channels need to be in order to be considered for conversion to mono.


Identical: the side peak value of the audio needs to be ∞, meaning that the left and right channels are sample-for-sample identical.


Mostly Mono: the difference between the side peak value and the mid peak value needs to be greater than 40dB for conversion.


A Little Different: the difference between the side peak value and the mid peak value needs to be greater than 20dB for conversion.


Noticeably Stereo: the difference between the side peak value and the mid peak value needs to be greater than 6dB for conversion.
