    Technical Question ref. Phantoms

    Ok, so I understand that the re-release of Phantoms has the Left and Right channels changed around on accident. Hoping a computer whiz can answer this-- how do I adjust my computer settings to swap the audio left/right? I am an average computer user, but can't seem to find anything in the normal audio software that allows this, but maybe I'm missing something. I have numerous programs that could play the CD like the Microsoft Media Player or Dell Jukebox. Is there something out there that you know of that can swap channels?

    Curious.

    off hand theres a couple ways to do this....

    you can buy a sound card that has an option to reverse the channels, my wifes PC has a creative soundblaster audigy card, that card can do it and it only cost ~$20, im sure theres alot of other inexpensive sound cards that can do the same

    or

    you can use free open source audio tools to create and then burn a 'corrected' copy of the remastered edition

    1. download CDex

    2. insert the CD, start CDex

    3. Go to Convert > Extract CD track(s) to WAV file

    4. The WAV files by default are saved to a folder in My Documents\My Music

    5. download Audacity

    6. Repeat steps 7 - 13 for each WAV file

    7. Open the WAV file with Audacity

    8. Click the down arrow on the left side of the track, Select 'Split Stereo Track'

    9. Click the down arrow of the top track, Select 'Move Track Down'

    10. Click the down arrow of the top track, click 'Left Channel'

    11. Click the down arrow of the bottom track, click 'Right Channel'

    12. Click the down arrow of the top track, click 'Make Stereo Track'

    13. The channels are now reversed. To save the WAV file Chose File > Export as WAV file.

    14. Open the corrected WAV files with Media Player and burn them to CD.

    In germany some people say it's like medicine. It's good against heartattack. If it is a lie - who cares?

    Octo,
    Dude you gave me the elementary and graduate level 'fixx'es for this problem-- many thanks and I'm sure one of them will work.
