I am trying to capture from a digbeta master tape of a film which says on the box that there 4 audio channels. channels 1 & 2 is dialogue and channels 3 & 4 are music & effects. But when i capture it into final cut there are 4 audio channels but channels 1&2 also have the music & effects mixed into it with the dialogue and channels 3&4 it just the music & effects.
Is there away to separate out these tracks when capturing or in final cut as we don't have copy write for the music so we would like to be able to remove the music but keep the dialogue.
If it is important the capture settings are:
Device control: AJA Kona LH: PAL Sony VTR
Capture/input: AJA Kona LH 25 Apple prores
Have you confirmed that the label on the box is correct ? The usual configuration for a finished Digibeta master is that there is a full fix on 1+2 and M+E on 3+4
It should be pretty easy to confirm this just by listening to tracks 1+2 in isolation and checking what it there. If thats a problem for some reason and just to make sure nothing odd is happening with your capture just capture a small section of just tracks 1+2 you could even turn the playback level of 3+4 to zero to make double sure no wires are crossed.
If you are still getting a full mix you know the label is incorrect.
If that turns out to be the case there is nothing you can do to in terms of separating dialogue from music.
