A friend of mine has a Zoom H-2 recorder. He gave me some of his
recordings (guitar) to put on a CD. The H-2 has four microphones. My
friend apparently had the unit set to record with all four. The
result is that for each recorded tune, there is a Front stereo file
and a Rear stereo file.

What can/should I do in Amadeus Pro in order to put these tunes onto a CD?

Thx.

CP

Select "Flatten to new file" in the "Sound" menu to mix the two
tracks. You can then burn the resulting file to a CD. Regards,

Pls excuse my density, Martin. I do not see how to do this. The Front
stereo file and the Rear stereo file that result from recording with
the 4 microphones (two in the front and two in the rear of the
recorder) are two separate documents, each with an L and R.

I did the following, and the result seem to be what I am after. Or
should I also be flattening someplace in this process?:

Open Front stereo file.
Sound menu: Add new stereo track
Open Back stereo file and copy/paste into the new stereo track
Click in top (or bottom) track
Sound menu: Merge with next (or previous) track

Thx for help. CP

Sorry, I thought there was one document with 4 tracks...

That would be fine as well. Instead of copy / pasting, you can also
drag the second stereo file onto the open window. Regards,
