    I'm researching this for a friend.

    We have a vid of live music where only one mic was working, so we have a solid left channel. We want to make it a full (L R) signal (using the one channel).

    What's the trick?

    Thanks!

    Difficult to achieve great results with a full mix. Quick and dirty try the "spreader" plugin. For better results use an eq (mono-stereo) with the option to split left and right enabled, tweak the left and right parts separately, keep anything below 200Hz the same. Try 1K, 5k, 7K, 9-10k and 12k as starting points, subtly boosting one side and reducing the other. Try to identify the key frequencies of specific instruments/elements and use boosts and cuts at these frqs to place elements in the stereo field. Lastly add a decent reverb (the settings in space designer with the + suffix are a good start as they offer a more stereo sound). A more advanced option is to load the mono audio onto multiple tracks and try to extrapolate characteristics with eq, then use the pan to place it. This is more tricky as frqs tend to stack up and you'll need to be careful of phase cancellation.
