the topic says it all really:
i have an old archived show with no dialogue stems.
there are however 2 tracks of a full mix, and 2 more tracks of an M+E.
would there be some clever phase trick to get just the dial and VO from the old film, clean of the old music ?

i can live in hope ☺

thanks in advance.

Phase might work to some degree if the two tracks are sample accurate and you can line up the files to be sample accurate. I can't remember of FCP7 can do audio phase reverse. I seem to remember it was possible. It might work better to import the files into a DAW where you can move the file by the sample to get the line up.

Next problem is the M&E will likely not dip where the narration & dialog are so you will have to work to replicate the level dips or the phase cancel won't work.
