That's a feature that would be _really_ nice to see in ecasound; think of
all the applications it might have.

The problem here is that when you do -erc:2,1 you basically mix ch2 with ch1,
thus giving the result you noticed. What we would need is the capacity either
to _mute_ a given channel or to _read_ an arbitrary channel from a file.
There is actually one way to get around this problem, using loops, but it
crashes ecasound whenever I try it... :(
So for now I'm afraid you're stuck doing it in non-realtime: split the stereo
file in two mono and reassemble them applying whatever effects you like.
If anybody knows of a better way I am eager to hear it.
