    How to make mono sounds to stereo ?
    I have <Arts of mixing> , A effect name'd "fatting" :

    get the original signal to left and get the delay to right.
    than use a stereo expand to change the sound width or narrow

    according to the book ,I can make sounds "width",but when I
    use stereo expand to change the sound narrow,it's be come
    so bad,just like a comb filter! how to avert?

    welcome

    the method you describe is the basics of the idea and the comb filter effect can be a result

    do a search here and you should fand a couple of recent threads discussing the delay and the EQ method of mono to stereo
    combinations of the two can be effective

    in addition to that is the various plug-ins dedicated to this effect

    my favorite is to use a good quality speaker and a stereo microphone
    or if you want to keep it in the box

    Left channel:
    Delay: 3.4 ms
    Mixing 18%
    Right channel:
    Delay: -5 ms
    Mixing 16%

    or/and
    add a 'filter' to one side
    and the invers to the other along with the delay

    tweak to your delight

    You could also try M/S processing and place a stereo reverb on the newly created 'S' channel.

    Or, there is Bob Katz's stereo processor ($$$$$$$)
