Editing software to swap L/R channels

I've got a few tapes of a broadcast from 1975, and recently acquired a boot silver of the same broadcast; whilst the silver is superior in many respects, it has the L/R channels reversed; the guitar should be on the right, with keyboards to the left; but on the silver it's guitar left, keyboards right.

What can I use to swap the channels digitally?

In the old tape-trading days, I would have just made a copy, reversing the L/R cables between one recorder to another, but that's a no-no now.......

Regards, Graham

You can do it with audacity.

if you right click to the left of the sound wave you can split into stereo tracks. You can then switch the tracks and then rejoin.

Eh, considering the silver is already of better quality, are you sure it is not the other way around? Just checking - not being smart, had it myself once.

I've got the original FM broadcast that I taped myself, a tape that someone else made of the transcription disc, and this silver that was apparently sourced from the same transcription disc; and the silver is the odd one out. Two against one, and I'd always trust my original broadcast tape anyway.
