P2 audio errors on Import
on Feb 9, 2018 at 9:41:31 pm

Importing some files from an HPX270 p2 camera. There are 4 channels of audio, typically Channels 3& 4 are camera internal mic and channels 1& 2 follow XLR inputs what ever they happen to be. In this case channel 1 was an on board camera mic and channel 2 was a radio mic from a podium mic. I can play the individual audio channels right in the finder from the archived camera card so I can hear the difference between the mics.
When Importing this card volume in FCPX 10.4 it appears that all 4 channels of audio are from the internal camera mic, once the clip is in the browser. All 4 channels sound the same and none of them are the radio mic from the podium.
So some where FCPX is messing up the imported audio from the card volume and assigning camera internal mic recording to all 4 channels.

Running FCPX 10.4 on a late model iMac 5K , OS is high Sierra, all system and FCPX updates are done.

Has anyone run into this problem before and if so what is the solution if there is one?

As something of a reality check, I tried importing the camera files into a different iMac running Sierra and FCPX 10.4 with identical results - all 4 audio channels are the same .

I’ve seen this problem reported a couple of times now. It must be a bug. I'd report it to Apple.

In the meantime, maybe something like EditReady can help get the footage in to a format that is working:
