I have a fair amount of audio files in "stereo format" that I suspect are actually mono recordings. Is there any free and easy piece of software that will analyze a collection of audio files, figure out which of the "stereo files" contain no actual stereo content, and convert those files to single-channel mono audio files, which will take up half their original hard drive space?

I could do this manually, but it would take ages to sift through all my audio files. I'd like to automate the process as much as possible, if not completely.
I'm involved with photography & audio. For more info, take a look at my site:
