how to convert a stereo mov file to a mono mov file

so you recorded a whole bunch of video only to find out that you hear the microphone only on one side?

no problem

just open terminal and run this command:

ffmpeg -i inFile.mov -map 0:0 -vcodec copy -c:a pcm_s24le -map 0:1 -filter:a:0 "pan=mono|c0=c0" outFile-mono.mov


of course change inFile and outFile-mono to the filenames of your choice

hope this helps you convert stereo 1-side only into a mono track which fixes the problem easily

Korg Monotron Presets Booklet

Do you have a Korg Monotron, Duo or Delay?
Korg say that they don't like presets for these little synths, to make you explore more rather than take a ready-made preset.
With that said, if you wanna start from somewhere familiar and then tweak it - you want presets.

So I created a small preset bank that you can program easily

Here they are (in my hand writing):

Korg Monotron Delay - presets

Korg Monotron Duo - presets

Korg Monotron - presets


I hope you find these Korg Monotron Presets useful !!!
