It is called (simply enough) Track-Merge.

This should yield desired results. Pay attention to the track numbers in the boxes!

No problem at all, I do it all the time.
Took me a few posts to catch on to the big ol' 'Prefs' button in RB would take me to the preferences dialogue quicker than other methods I was using..

Track - merge will combine the two tracks to a blank track.

Then you have move that track back to track 3 if you want it there.

Rharv, when I use Track/ Merge Two audio tracks to a stereo ... I get a stereo track (which is how it's supposed to be). But when I use
Track/Merge .... I also get a stereo track?

Set the track you want to merge to as a mono track beforehand ..

Are the two tracks you are merging together both mono tracks?

I just tested, and you are right, somewhere along the way it started forcing it to a stereo track. Both channels are exactly the same when done this way, so you *could* then split that stereo track to two monos, keep one mono and delete the rest of the litter you don't want.

I don't see anything that would make it easier if you really need the mono track.
Wonder when it switched to forcing a stereo track? I know it used to do mono when requested...

But what's really weird: I'm sure it worked correctly the first time (earlier in this thread) when you told me what to do ?????
But thanks anyway, Rharv!

That maybe true. I think I updated RB not so long ago. Maybe we could have PG people look into this?

I just realised that I have RB 2009? I just ordered the 2010 update, so maybe that will solve my problem?

Hi Rharv!

I got this reply from PG, can you decipher if they understood my problem?:

"Hello,

If you are trying to export your tracks in a mono format so you can import
them into another DAW just import the stereo file to two mono tracks thus
splitting it. You can usually do this by dragging a stereo file from
Explorer over two mono tracks in your other DAW and dropping it. If you have
two instruments playing in your RealBand file and want them to be rendered
to separate mono tracks just pan one hard left and the other hard right and
follow the steps above.

Thank you,
Jareth
PG Music Inc."

No, they didn't get the problem, they assumed you were trying the new drag&drop features.

Explain that you are trying to stay inside RB, and simply want to merge two mono tracks to another mono track inside RB.
