stereo vocoder track to mono only

I have inadvertantly recorded a vocal through a vocoder with left and right, I need to add an envelope to ride the fader but the envelope only seems to have effect on the left part of the channel.


How do i add the envelope to the right part too. If not possible how can I record that vocal track in ableton to a mono only and then add the envelope after?

    Hi there, 

    It seems like you recorded a mono signal into Live, and thus the file is only playing from one side. 

    As a first step you would need to convert this left-panned audio file to a center-panned one, as explained in this article:

    Once this is done, your envelope will be audible from both speakers. 

    Hope this helps,
