How do I split audio from video in Final Cut Pro X?

OK, maybe I should ask, "Is it possible for me to manually sync audio in Final Cut X - especially if the audio and video are already joined?"

I've been using Final Cut 7 for the last several years. I work at a film archive, where we scan archival film. Much of this film was shot in the earliest sound era by Fox Movietone cameramen. Single-system sound, with 11 frame separation between the image and the corresponding sound. Obviously, before 22 or 24 frame separation became the norm.

Whenever we scan a film that was shot this way, we have to pull the pic ahead by 11 frames. In Final Cut 7 this is very easy - just grab the picture track and pull it ahead. Or type in "11" and enter, and the track moves itself.

Enter Final Cut X and this is an unnatural act, an impossible dream, Apple knows best, blah, blah, blah. 8^) . I've tried a number of different ways and have searched online for a solution with no luck so far. Does anyone here have a suggestion?

Thank you in advance...

Separate audio and video-- detach. Sync and then make compound clip?

As above - or in the clip browser, select the clip, choose ‘open in timeline’ and move the audio as required?

Great thanks to you both. I didn't know how to "detach" at first, but once I tried "open clip in browser", I was able to grab the sound and move it independently of the video. However, I could only move the audio forward - not move the video forward. So, I inserted a gap clip at the head, shortened it to the eleven seconds that I needed, and was then able to pull the audio back to the right spot.

It works now, though I wish there were a slightly easier way - but this isn't hard. Thank you both very much!

"open clip in browser":
You can insert a gap at the beginning of the video clip (Alt-W?) and then move the sound 'backwards'.

Wouldn’t it make more sense just to trim off the first 11 frames of the audio, then move it backward? You don’t need the 11 frames that don’t have visual most likely.
