match additional microphones in protocols using only timecode on an existing edit

I am cutting an event with 12 microphones and 2 production mixes, all with matching timecode. The edit was done with only the 2 production tracks. I need to send this off to ProTools but I need to have all 14 tracks mixed.

Is there a way for ProTools to match the edits from my production mixes to my microphone tracks?

Hello Stephen and welcome to the Cow Audio Forum.

I don'r know for sure, but I doubt it.

What did you edit the production mixes on and what sort of editing did you do? Does it allow export of meta data?

So, you're wanting the multiple tracks so you can mute and/or change levels?

If you import the production mixes and isos into Pro Tools and then line them up visually, editing the iso's to match your mix, that's probably the best you could do. Someone else may have a better answer and may correct me if I'm wrong.

Peter,

Good thought! Isn't there another program that does something similar?

It's a woman's name, named after the person who used to do the work manually…….

Molly?

If you're on Pro Tools HD, give the 'Fieldrecorder-Workflow' a try. But that's a funny name for a woman..
If you're not on HD, I think Plural Eyes could help, too. It will sync multiple audio tracks based on their waveform. Even has a free trial.

Hey guys. Thanks for the responses. Haven't looked into this Titan 4 but the "ProTools HD Field recorder workflow" seems to solve my exact problem.

HI Ty
Think youre recalling (fondly) Virtual Katy, but that it for reconforming the media already on a timeline to new locations after an edl change list, not bringing in new tracks.
(NB Katy manually reconformed the changes on early Lord of the Rings features in NZ)
