Combining 3 Stereo Tracks to Make One Surround File

I have 3 stereo audio files that I would like to combine into a surround sound file.

Which programs can I use to do this?

I do not have a surround card or audio system, however, I have previously been able to encode a surround file with 3 stereo audio files in a program called Audacity, however the effect was not good and I was unable to assign certain tracks to certain positions on the 5.1 track (left, right, center, etc).

Can someone help me out?

Thanks in advance!

If you don't know the origin of the 3 stereo files we can't help you.

You could give WaveWizard v0.54b a try too!

I'll try those out, thanks!

I have another question. Can these tools assign certain tracks to certain positions in the surround file, such as Left channel, Right channel, Center channel, etc? If not, can someone recommend a tool that can? The only tools I've found so far are commercial that can do this.

With WaveWizard you can move individual "mono" tracks around.

You can move "paired" files around but they will still be linked as pairs.... If that makes any sense?

Yeah, that makes sense, however, can you clarify on how you move the mono tracks around? Thanks!

You click and hold on the file/channel. And move it up/down the list: -



EDIT: The above is the correct order.


Cheers

Alright, thanks for that. Is there a special setting you should use to get the surround file exported or is default good enough?
