How to select audio tracks when watching dailies ?

Hi,
I guess it's a silly question, but I have one track with an hf mic sound, and one with general ambiance.
On FCP7, how do I listen to one or the other as I scan through dailies please ?
Thx a mil'

you can turn tracks off or on with the round green buttons on the left of the timeline.
if you option click, it will solo that track (and un-solo)
this method it'll stop playback.

another approach is via the monitoring controls, opened by clicking the tiny speaker icon at the bottom left of the timeline.
this will reveal solo/mute buttons, and using these will not stop playback.
clicking is the only way to activate them, i think. if there are keyboard commands, i don't know them.

a different approach is if your clips are stereo, and you are monitoring though an amp, you can simply change the balance from left to right.


cheers,
nick

Thanks for your kind answer !
Clicking on the correct icons for each clip when you have many to view is a little cumbersome.
The amp thing is a good idea. Even using the simple computer's sound balance btw is a pertinent practical tip I did not think of !
Cheerio

hi Steph,

i didn't explain properly -
i prefer to view my rushes i a TIMELINE, rather than clicking each one into the viewer, one by one.
so load all your rushes into a sequence, or better have a separate sequence for each day, or scene.
then in the timeline you can simply turn off/on channels as you view.


cheers,
nick
