He's certainly right on the recording side of things.
Most times, you can either record left/mono or left+right/stereo.
Notice that it is not possible to record only the right side, i.e.
channel 2.
Likewise with the few devices that allow more than two channels. The
first one (left) is always given and you can only increase the number
of channels but not pick one at random.
As for editing, it is multi track but single time range, that is,
non-contiguous or multiple selections (time-wise) are not possible.
Mind, that's not necessarily a disadvantage, especially for us.

Hi David

Any stereo mixer can record into two separate mono tracks.  Simply pan
the
mixer’s left channel hard left and the right channel hard right.  After
recording, split the stereo track into two mono tracks.  But if one
wanted
to have three or more mics going to separate tracks, that would stretch
the
friendship.

Hi Andrew,

There seemed to be two contexts in which he was suggesting Audacity can
only deal with single tracks.

The first was editing, and that's clearly incorrect.

The second, was recording multiple channels into separate tracks, for
example when recording  from two microphones. This isn't an area which
I'm
familiar with, but from what I've read, at least some mixers seem work
with
audacity and enable this to happen.



David.

Audacity.
Do you believe it is inaccurate to call Audacity a single track DAW?

Audacity is definitely a multi-track workstation.  I am most surprised if
Jonathan does not know that.  Could you send me a link to his podcast.

Hello guys. I"m listening to a podcast from Jonathan Mosen, Mosen at
Large. He says that Audacity is a single track digital audio workstation.
I
don't think that this is the case. Correct me if I'm wrong. When I
receive
confirmation that it isn't a single track digital audio workstation, I'll
correct Mr. Mosen.
