Audio Tracks Locked Together?
on Apr 28, 2012 at 5:01:52 pm

OK. So I tried to find an answer for this but came up empty.

Working on a project where I want to duplicate the right track to replace an audio issue on the left track... I cannot select an individual track (I am trying to select the right channel of a stereo audio track). Every time I try and select it it automatically selects both the left and the right. I tried locking the left track to try and individually select the right but when I do that FC tell me that I cannot because one of the tracks is locked. The left and the right tracks seemed to be glued together. How can I "unglue" them?

I tried to open the track up in Soundtrack but when I got there I couldn't do anything there either (couldn't use the blade tool, or even edit the tracks at all but that's another question completely).

I probably am missing something obvious here. Can anyone shed some light on this?

Select both tracks, then turn off stereo pair in the modify menu.

Maybe you can also explain why I could edit the tracks in Soundtrack?

Pretty simple... they aren't locked as a stereo pair.
