How do I Get 8 Channels of Audio in FCP 6?
on Jan 17, 2013 at 7:56:49 pm

I'm submitting my film for distribution through Distribber and they have very specific technical requirements. I'm okay with most of it, but not sure about their audio specs.

They request this: (from: http://www.distribber.com/faqs)...

•Audio: Must have 8 channels of audio

•5.1 – L, R, C, LFE, Ls, Rs / PCM Little Endian / Each audio channel needs to be its own track

•Ch. 7 stereo left, Ch. 8 stereo right / PCM Little Endian / Each audio channel needs to be its own track


I don't know what this means. I edited our HD movie using FCP 6.06, how do I achieve these specs?

Thanks for your help!

First off, you will need someone who knows audio to mix your project and make your Dolby 5.1 mix. Then get you the audio "stems" for those, as well as the stereo pair you need for CH 7&8.

Unless you know how to mix. If so, you export stems for each of those channels. And then follow this tutorial:
