ecasound -a:1 -i:mono1.wav \
-a:2 -i:mono2.wav \
-a:1,2 -f:24,2,96000 -o:stereo.wav \
-a:2 -erc:1,2 -eac:0,1
Do that all on one line. The returns are escaped to make it easier to
read. This creates 2 chains, one for each input mono wav file. Both
chains are connected to the same output file. You have to set the format
for the output because ecasound defaults to 16,2,44100. You don't need
to set the format for the inputs if they are .wavs because ecasound will
read the info from the wav headers. Then for chain 2 you route channel
one to channel two (-erc:1,2), and mute channel 1 (-eac:0,1).
