One of the best tools for play-along practice I have found is
Transcribe. It's super for transcribing but for play-along;
1) change the key of the piece (within boundaries) -- need to practice a
song in A
but the singer want's it in C? no problem.
2) Change pitch -- I play along with Beatles tracks a lot and they are not
always in
standard tuning, but somewhere in between.
3) Loop part of the recording to practice a particularly difficult
portion... no problem.
4) Want only left or right side? or wanna subtract them? no problem...
5) Need some tech support? Fire off a email and get answers from the
creator of the
program!
6) Need to exchange transcribe files with annotations with other users on a
different platform
like Mac or Windows? No problem.
And lots of other goodies... For a mere 35 euro's? Bargain!!

And for the record: I am not affiliated in any way with this program or
it's creator other
than having been a long time *extremely happy* paying user.

easily turn the pan control on my mixer fully left, but that leaves a big
hole in the right side.

I think you can use Audacity, there is a function there for splitting
stereo to mono, then you just delete the R channel and export it as
mono wav/mp3/whatever or just play it directly from audacity :)

You can also use play (from sox [1]) to play only one channel:

play stero_file.wav remix 1 #(for left channel)
play stero_file.wav remix 2 #(for right channel)
