Sending SoundTrack Pro MultiTrack Project ~ Mono Convert to Stereo
on Jan 28, 2012 at 7:06:44 pm

I have a timeline in FCP. The audio for vocals was recorded stereo but with just one external mic on an H4N Zoom, leaving the right channel blank. In FCP I have imported and synced up that audio to my video. I unlinked the stereo pair, then duplicated the one to the other and relinked them as a stereo pair, now both channels being identical, audio coming out both channels. That is fine and well enough in FCP, but when I export to Sound Track Pro, it only reads as the original, and doesn't have the FCP newly linked up pair.

What is a suggested way to get this issue solved in Sound Track Pro? There is the process of "convert to mono" which would let me rid myself of the blank right channel. My object is to have my vocal or narration in both channels rather than the one.

Any suggestions on the ideal way to pull this off easiest?

[Shaun Knapp] "I unlinked the stereo pair, then duplicated the one to the other and relinked them as a stereo pair, now both channels being identical, audio coming out both channels."

That sounds logical Shaun, but it's not really the proper way to achieve the goal you're looking for.

What you should have done is:

Unlink the stereo pair>delete the empty channel>double click to load the remaining channel in the viewer>center pan that single channel by changing the pan parameter to "0."

Hate to say this but your quote has the great man's name spelt incorrectly.

Jeeze Alexander, you had me looking all over my stuff for a typo.

He means your Einstein quote Shaun.
