I made the mistake of recording two microphones into a single (left) channel of an HD-P2. When I import it into a FCP sequence, I get the normal dual channel, but only one (the left), has sound. I can hear the separate mics if I pan the single channel to Left or Right. All the way right is one mic, and all the way left is the other. Is there any way to split this?
Or, is there any way to reverse the pan direction of an audio channel.
Both mics are recorded on one channel. ONE channel. That channel can't be stereo...it can't be TWO channels. The audio is mixed.
So you are telling me that if you pan it all the way to the left, you hear person 1 clear, but not person 2 all that clear, and if you pan it to the right you hear person 2 clear, but person 1 is quieter? Or do you just hear it coming out of one speaker or the other when you pan...which is normal?
FCP audio tracks are mono...one track is one channel. There are no stereo tracks...not like Avid or Premiere Pro.
