Breaking Apart Two Channel Audio
on Feb 26, 2014 at 2:40:05 am

Hi all,

How is this done in FCP X? I was on a shoot today, and recorded a file with two channels. Lav and Boom. I am working in final cut and I want to get rid of the boom, keep the lav.

In the old days of FCP 7, I would bring the file into the timeline, get rid of the channel I didn't want, and duplicate the one I did want. How can I get the same result in X??

I see how you can tweak audio in the inspector, but I am trying to at least tweak each channel separately and I can't figure it out.

Can anyone help? Thanks!

Select all the relevant clips in Browser.

Open inspector (command-4).

Click the audio button.

Twirl open the components towards the bottom.

Choose dual mono from the drop down.

Name the lav channel, "lav" and boom, "boom" if you'd like.

Edit.

If you need to bring back the lav in the timeline, turn it back on in the inspector.

You can expand audio components right in the timeline as well (I have it mapped to shift-e, I can't remember if that's the default shortcut).

The default is CTL+OPT+S

This audio is probably ID'ed as a stereo file. If so, you will first need to set the channel configuration to dual mono in the Inspector. Then you can turn off or adjust one channel versus the other.
