4 channel out put on FCP
on Mar 29, 2011 at 9:15:58 pm

I have a project with 4 channels. And I want each channel to stay on it's track and not get mixed on the export.
I have my sequence settings set to 4 channel out set at dual mono.
It exports as 4 channels but when I bring it in to FCP the buttom two channels have no audio? Any help would be great!

OK, correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't "dual mono" mean two mono tracks?

I found out about right clicking the audio tracks...
Now I got it to all come in as 4 the top 2 have audio, what's really weird is the bottom two show up with waveforms and my audio monitor shows as audio coming in but I can't hear anything?

You computer/io card is probably set up to output only channels 1 & 2. The simple answer is that you need 4 speakers to monitor 4 channels simultaneously, or you can press the downmix button on the Audio Mixer tool in FCP, which will mix everything down into two channels.
