Songs that have been recorded and compressed into one stereo track are capable of being split into two mono tracks using Audacity. This allows you to modify and edit the left and right channels independently without making changes to your entire project. When exporting your project, you can choose to recombine the mono tracks into one stereo track or export each mono track individually.
