Why is the riff in Stereo ?
« on: January 22, 2010, 01:24:00 PM »
Hi,

Just downloaded ROTJ riff and when I set out to remix it, it turns out the riff is in stereo. Is there any reason it is in stereo ? If the channels are the same then it just doubles the file size.

Or are there actually stereo effects in the riff, which would be very cool :)

It's in stereo because I didn't encode it as mono from the raw wav file. That is all and can be fixed if it bugs anyone.

No swooping stereo effects from what I heard, it's just how I've always worked with it.

(Also, it doesn't double the file size...it's a bit larger, but not by that much. So no worries there.  ;) )

Any issues with the RiffTrax main page should be directed to support@rifftrax.com Attempts to engage with me directly about such matters will result in ridicule.

Somewhat related note, I wish the iRiffs could be stereo rather than mono.  All the music on our Burn-E iRiff was recorded in stereo and doesn't quite sound the same once it's changed over to mono.
